The It'll Do Sandwich Recipe

So back in Peru at a delightful restaurant called Los Perros, I had a tantalizing sandwich called the “It’ll Do the Trick” sandwich. I had it my first day I was there & had it about six more times throughout the month. Here’s a recipe inspired by that delicious sandwich.

There are two ways to make this delicious sandwich: cook the chicken yourself, or buy breaded chicken in the frozen section of your grocery store. If you are breading the chicken yourself, you will take the raw chicken, dunk in flour, dunk in egg, dunk in breadcrumbs & fry in some oil or butter (a more detailed recipe found here, which is what I tend to use). For store bought simply cook chicken (or warm) according to the package’s directions. I used a package of General Tao's chicken and baked it without the sauce.

To make four sandwiches, you will need:
4 soft hoagie rolls
2 Avocados
2 tbsp. toasted sesame seeds
1 small jar roasted red peppers
4 pieces of butter lettuce
1 c. shredded Monterrey jack cheese

If you can’t find toasted sesame seeds: place sesame seeds in a frying pan over medium heat. Stir every few minutes until they are light brown in color & you begin to smell them toasting. Remove from heat and set aside.

Prepare chicken according to directions on package (or fry up your own breaded chicken)
Cut & peel avocados. Place in a bowl & mash with a fork until it’s got a chunky guacamole consistency.

1. Using a butter knife, spread avocado onto both sides of the rolls
2. Add roasted red peppers on top
3. Sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds
4. Add a layer of lettuce
5. Add chicken
6. Add cheese on top of chicken (be generous)

Place the halves together & viola the yummiest sandwich is now at your fingertips.
