Chicken Bullet Bread Italian Sandwich
Prep time
Total time
Talk about a hearty Italian-style sandwich! Here’s a simple Roasted Chicken sandwich using leftover rotisserie chicken meat. As the Italian’s say, “it’s all about the bread” so using that bullet bread is key to making the sandwich more like a sub. The sandwich is fast, delicious, and very satisfying! The roasted red peppers make a huge difference in the sandwich by offering a sweet flavor to the acid from the balsamic vinegar.
