Husband's Spicy Chicken Subs

As promised, here is the recipe for Scott's Spicy Chicken Subs.  At least the version that he used this time!  He's really good about throwing a bunch of ingredients in a pan and making a fantastic meal.  It's great when we're trying to use up a bunch of stuff in the fridge.
Spicy Chicken Sub ingredients

1 cup shredded mozzarella
4-6 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 pepper (we used half red and half green) chopped
3 oz spinach, chopped/ cut (he does this so I'll eat it- you can leave it whole, too)
6-8 chicken breast tenderloins (we use Tyson boneless skinless ice glazed)
¼ teaspoon each of seasoned salt, garlic salt, and crushed red pepper
½ cup Texas Pete Extra Mild Wing Sauce
1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Set stove to medium heat, add oil to large skillet and sauté onion, garlic, and peppers for about 7 minutes.

Spicy Chicken Tender Sub Ingredients saute

Add frozen chicken; cook for 3 minutes, then add ½ cup of water and cover.  Stir occasionally and turn chicken.  Add seasoned salt, garlic salt, and crushed paper.  Continue cooking for 15 minutes.

Spicy Chicken Tender Sub Ingredients Cooking

Chicken should be able to be cut apart by wood spoon by now.  Cube the pieces and reduce heat to med-low.  Add chopped spinach and another ¼ cup of water. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.

Spicy Chicken Tender Sub Ingredients Cooked and Chopped

Add Texas Pete to mixture.  Stir.  Add cheese.  Cook 5 more minutes.

Turn off heat and let stand for 5 minutes.  Sauce will thicken.

This will make approximately 4 six-inch subs.

Just add to sub rolls and sprinkle a little more mozzarella on the top if you like.  It also tastes great cold.  I dipped mine in sour cream.

    This looks amazing, I bet my fiance' would love it...I'm going to have to add it to the meal plan for next week!

  2. It's soooo good. And really not that spicy- unless you add a different kind of hot sauce to it :)

    I was waiting for this since yesterday - YUM!! I love how the chicken is cooked in with all the flavors!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  4. Hahahah you're not the only one- some friends of ours have been waiting a long time (like years) for me to hover over Scott and write this down.

    Yum!! My husband is going to be a huge fan of this.

  6. Hahah I am- it's an added bonus that my husband cooks it so I don't have to!

  7. Looks so full of flavor. Sounds Delish!

  8. AND it's full of stuff I don't normally eat- spinach, onions, and peppers!

  9. This sounds delicious!!! Perfect for the day you want something different but don't feel like heading to your nearest sandwich shop to get it!

  10. Yes- and we haven't found anything comparable to this. Though a breaded chicken tender sub from Publix (with hot sauce) comes close!

  11. I love spicy and flavorful dishes/sandwiches, etc..Looks just as good as getting it from a sub shop!

  12. He really does a good job- and has perfected the recipe over the years!

  13. YUM! Perfect for a weekend lunch :)

  14. extra good with a side of chips or fries!

    Yummy and perfect for a quick meal!! Great post!

  16. Mmmm, this sounds and looks so good! Will your husband come over and teach mine how to cook?! ;)

  17. Heheh sure! He may have better luck than he does teaching me to cook! :-D

  18. Oh delicious! I need to try this... but is it spicy? I might need to do a non spicy version for Avi.

  19. It's not very spicy at all- the mild sauce just kind of adds a tangy taste to it. We've made it with hot wing sauce before and I loved it, but I also like spicy food!


I love comments! Let me know what you think!
