This Roasted Chicken Sandwich is a delicious and easy lunch!


For the Sandwich

1 skin-on, bone-in chicken breast

½ teaspoon extra virgin olive oil 

½ teaspoon kosher salt

¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

4 slices swiss cheese 

4 slices white bread (soft and freshly baked, if possible)

Pickle slices, dill or your favorite 


For the coleslaw

3 cups thinly sliced purple cabbage

¼ cup mayonnaise 

½ tablespoon red wine vinegar 

Pinch of Kosher Salt 


For the sauce

½ cup mayonnaise

1 teaspoon honey

½ teaspoon yellow mustard 

½ teaspoon hot sauce 

Pinch of Kosher Salt


Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.


Thoroughly coat the chicken breast with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place on the baking sheet and cook for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush the top of the chicken with the pan juices. Return to the oven for 5 minutes to brown. Remove from the oven and allow the chicken to cool for a few minutes. Cut the breast meat from the bone and slice it thinly on the diagonal. 


Reduce oven temperature to 325F. 


Make the Coleslaw

In a medium bowl, add the cabbage, mayonnaise, red wine vinegar and salt. Gently toss until thoroughly combined. Set aside. 


Make the Sauce

In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, honey, mustard, hot sauce and salt, until combined. Set aside. 


Make the Sandwich

Generously spread the sauce on both halves of the bread, place one slice of swiss cheese on each half. Repeat this for second sandwich. Place on a small baking sheet and cook in the oven until cheese is melted and bubbly, for 6 to 8 minutes. 


Remove from the oven, and divide the chicken between the two sandwiches. Evenly spread the coleslaw over the chicken. Place the pickles on top, put the sandwich halves together and enjoy!
