My daughter recently bought me some vintage cookbooks. This recipe came from Betty Crocker's Dinner in a Dish, published in 1965. This is a tasty way to use leftover chicken or turkey!
- 12 slices bread
- 1⁄4 cup margarine
- 3 teaspoons mustard
- 2 cups chopped cooked chicken
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 tablespoons chopped red peppers
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
- 1 (10 ounce) package frozen green peas (thawed)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Trim crusts from bread.
- Blend the margarine and mustard. Spread on one side of each bread slice.
- Put 6 slices of bread, buttered side up, in an 11x2x2 baking dish.
- Combine chicken, cheese, red pepper, salt and pepper. Spread over bread slices in baking dish.
- Cut remaining 6 slices of bread diagonally. Arrange over chicken in baking dish, buttered side up.
- Combine soup and peas. Spoon over and around "sandwiches".
- Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes until center is hot. Lift out sandwiches to serve.

WOW, what a great discovery. I loved this. I did take the easy way and layered the chicken, cheese (fat free) and red pepper instead of chopping and mixing. I thought I was grabbing chicken soup but got a can of mushroom which I only noticed when I opened it. It worked though. I baked this on the bottom oven rack and the bottom layer of the sandwich toasted beautifully. It all turned out yummy and I need to say that the mustard added a real flavor perk. Made for Photo Tag.
