I enjoyed this sandwich at The Smokestack in Thurber, TX. It is a chicken version of the popular patty melt. Sort of a chicken grilled cheese. Prep time includes grilling a chicken breast.

I had leftover grilled chicken breast (cut in strips already) and happened across this recipe. I didn't have rye bread so I just used plain white. I used my Counter top George Foreman grill for these and it was amazingly delicious! Will definitely be making these in the future. Thanks for sharing

Oh my goodness, I LOVED this sandwich. I generally enjoy a sandwich anyway, but this one made me sad when it was gone (but it'll be lunch today). I used a very dark rye, and baby swiss, which I recommend. I did cut the chicken breast into bite-sized pieces, which worked well. Yum!!

So good & easy. I grilled chicken breasts seasoned with garlic earlier in the day and then pulled the sandwich together with a salad for a quick dinner. My chicken breasts were pretty thick, so I cut them in half length-wise, which I think made them lay better on the bread, more flat. I made one sandwich with swiss and one with pepperjack for me & hubby. Both were excellent. Hubby dipped his in spicy mustard, while I ate mine plain. This has a lot of possibilities with various cheeses, etc. :) Thanks!
