Today’s recipe for pulled chicken suiza sammies is a Rachael Ray recipe that I saw adapted over at Taste and Tell. She made the recipe more like what I would have done.
The original recipe called for crème fraîche and she changed it to sour cream. This sandwich is quick to put together and it’s delicious. This sandwich also has an interesting name. From what I can tell, suiza is Switzerland in Spanish so I am guessing suiza is in the sandwich name because of the Swiss cheese.
With this sandwich you get a nice creamy chicken filling with a slight kick to it. Yum! This recipe made more than the four sandwiches stated in the recipes. You can get at least 6 maybe 8 sandwiches out of this recipe. I also think the sandwiches would work best if the sandwich rolls were toasted so I had adjusted the recipe accordingly.
