Sort of a cold version of a reuben. Meats, cheese and coleslaw combine to make a serious sandwich worthy of any lunch time meal, football party or late night snack. I serve these with fries or onion rings for dinner. Or a half of one with a cup of soup or a salad.
I was just looking for something different and this is what I came up with. The higher cooking temp helps to keep the chicken moist. You can keep these on warm in a crock pot for a party by adding enough chicken broth to cover the bottom of the crock.
I use a good Durham Penne Pasta, but any cut pasta will work. This dish is one of my favorites and can easily be increased for larger crowds. I use a vegetable blend that includes yellow and orange carrots, red peppers, and green beans, but it can be substituted to your taste. I also use wheat flour instead of white.
I love tacos! I was looking for a lighter version, so my mind went straight to chicken. You can sub beef for the chicken and flour tortilla's for the whole grain if you wish, and it will still be wonderful!
This is really good and filling and even better the next day. It uses a ton of vegetables. Of course, I make it Italian by adding some grated Pecorino Romano on top, but what could be better than adding cheese?! Makes two huge containers, allowing me one to freeze for another time.
