Re-love those leftovers!
Ever make one too many chicken fingers or fish fillets? Odds are that every week you have leftovers that you scratch your head on how to use them. Well, look no more!
Dempster’s to the rescue.
This week, I made one too many chicken fingers for the girls for dinner and I put the chicken fingers in the fridge in hopes of using them again. The only problem is that I only had a few left and if one Princess has something, the other one MUST have it. So, to avoid that dilemma–I decided to give those chicken fingers a little lovin’ by putting them in between two slices of 100% Whole Wheat Dempster’s Bread.
I decided to make a Breaded Chicken Marinara Sandwich that was smothered in delicious marinara and Colby Jack cheese, it was a super quick and easy! It literally took me 5 minutes to make and I got praised for my creativity.
Things You Will Need:
- 2 slices of 100% Dempster’s Whole Wheat Bread
- 3 leftover pieces of chicken fingers
- 3 tsp. of marinara sauce
- 1/4 cup of your favorite cheese or to taste
- 1 side of pickles (optional)
Prep time: 5 minutes
Pick Your Favorite Dempster’s Bread!
First thing is first, you have to choose your favorite type of Dempster’s bread. Whether it’s 100% Whole Wheat Bread or White Bread, it’s entirely up to you. If you want to see more delicious leftover recipes, you can try the Chicken Fiesta Sandwich, Meatball Marinara Sandwich and the Fish-Wich. But, if you’re a sucker for breaded chicken, you’re gonna love this delicious sandwich!
Top That Bread!
Get your chicken fingers out of the fridge and lay them on top of one slice of Dempster’s, don’t reheat them just prepare it cold. Add your favorite marinara sauce and apply generously onto the chicken fingers.
Sprinkle That Cheese!
Make sure that when you top it with marinara that you generously top it on top of the fingers only, they can absorb the sauce well and it makes for a less messy sandwich. If you apply it carefully, you won’t have a mess at all. This sandwich came out perfect if I say so myself. Now, get out your favorite cheese and top the chicken marinara to taste. I opted for Colby Jack since this is Hubby’s favorite cheese but, swiss or mozzarella would work great too!
You can pair it with a side of pickles or a fresh salad of your choice and make it a nice hearty lunch!
