Pulled Chicken Suiza Sandwiches

It’s been a long couple of weeks here in the dental school world.  We have a big exam tomorrow… 7 procedures in 8 hours! Eeekkk!  I’ve been spending way too much time with Henry (meet Henry below) and I’m pretty sure Husband is starting to get a little jealous (not really though).  Please start sending good juju my way. Let’s also note that tomorrow is Friday the 13th.  But I mean I’m not superstitious or anything! I must pass this exam so they’ll let me start working on the humans. 🙂

Meet Henry


Anyways, moving on to yummy food.  What the heck’s a suiza? I have no idea.. but what I do know, is that these turned out delicious! The initial recipe suggested using a rotisserie chicken that you would pick up from the grocery store, I think that’s such a great idea for when you’re in a hurry but still want a partially homemade meal! Its a quick and tasty meal, enjoy!


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 1/2 cups salsa verde
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 3 chicken breast, shredded (or 1 rotisserie chicken, shredded)
  • 4 buns
  • 1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese


1. Set oven to broil.  Have shredded chicken set aside in a bowl.  In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.

2.  To skillet, add onion and garlic and cook until golden yellow (about 2 minutes).  Stir in the lime juice and honey, then stir in the salsa verde and heat through. Mix in the sour cream.

3.  Add sauce a little at a time to your bowl of shredded chicken.  You might not need all of the sauce, depending on how much chicken you have.  Just add enough sauce so that i coats the chicken.

4.  Pile mixture on to the bottom of a roll.  Top with cheese and place on baking sheet.  Put in oven just long enough to melt the cheese (~5 minutes!)

5.  Cover with top bun and enjoy!
