In a sammich kind of mood

For some reason, since vacation, I have been in a sandwich kind of mood.

It might have been mainly because I had bought a huge loaf of ciabatta bread, and it was lying on the counter screaming...eat me!  It was such a pretty loaf.   

The first sandwich I made was tilapia with a sour cream dill sauce and sliced grape tomatoes.  


The tilapia was a beautiful filet that I had bought at the Farmer's Market.
I just seasoned it with a little salt and pepper and lightly fried it in a tiny bit of olive oil.

For the sauce, I mixed a couple of tablespoons of fat free sour cream, a squeeze of lemon juice, salt, black pepper and some dill weed.  I just sliced a few grape tomatoes on top because I looove tomatoes.  I sliced my crusty ciabatta bread and toasted it lightly.

This was a messy but yummy sandwich!

The next sammich has marinated chicken tenders on it.


The marinade was one I found in a cooking magazine that I had.  I altered the ingredients to take out some of the fat, it originally called for 1/2 cup of oil.   

The ingredients I used were:

1/2 cup dry white wine
3 minced garlic cloves
2 T olive oil
2 T chopped fresh basil
1/2 t dried oregano
2 T lemon juice
1 t salt
1 t black pepper
1/2 t red pepper flakes

Mix the marinade well and reserve 2 T for a sauce.  Add 4 chicken breasts or 8 tenders to the marinade and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.  The longer it sits, the more it absorbs the flavors.

For the sauce, add the 2 T of marinade and mix with 3 T fat free sour cream and one more squeeze of lemon juice.

Lightly fry the chicken in a bit of olive oil until done.  I used tenders and they only took about 3-4 minutes per side.

Toast up 2 slices of your favorite bread and top with what your heart desires.  I used shredded lettuce, tomatoes, fresh parsley, and some of the sour cream sauce.  


Once again, this one was messy, but yummy!!

Love what you eat and eat what you love!
