This truly is kid friendly cuz there are no "pieces or green things" for the kids to pick out.

Top Review by Sydney Mike

Rather than making this with beef or turkey, I chopped up some shredded chicken that I had on hand. Did not add any S&P, 'cause the chicken had already been seasoned before baking it! ~ Otherwise, the recipe was followed right on through for some nice tasting sandwiches! Thanks for posting!
