  • 2 slices sour dough or whole wheat bread
  • 1 ½ tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons whole berry cranberry sauce*
  • 1 tablespoon of blue cheese
  • 2-3 slices of roasted chicken thick sandwich cut
  • 2-3 lettuce leaves


  • Heat a skillet on medium heat as you prepare the sandwich.
  • Spread ½ tablespoon of mayonnaise (or butter) on the two slices of bread. This will be for the outer sides of the sandwich which you will heat in the pan.
  • Spread the remaining tablespoon of mayonnaise on the inner sides of the two slices.
  • Next, spread the two tablespoons of whole berry cranberry sauce on top of the mayonnaise.
  • Sprinkle the tablespoon of blue cheese evenly across the cranberry sauce.
  • Place the 2-3 slices of chicken on top of one slice and close the sandwich by placing the other slice on top.
  • Cook the sandwich as you would a grilled cheese, cooking 3-4 minutes on each side until the bread browns.
  • Remove from the pan onto a plate.
  • Gently open the sandwich and add the lettuce. (You can add the lettuce before cooking, but adding after the sandwich is cooked keeps the lettuce crisp and cold, which is a nice addition to the warm sandwich).
  • Repeat for as many sandwiches as needed and serve as soon as possible.


*I suggest using whole berry rather than jellied cranberry sauce!
