Arugula Chicken Sandwich—A Healthy and Easy-to-Make Lunch

 

unused-ArugulaSandwich.Image2Arugula, also known as Eruca sativa, salad rocket, garden rocket, rocket, roquette, rucola, rugula, etc., is often used in North America to make garden salad. This leafy green plant, low in calories but abundant in anti-oxidants, vitamins, and minerals, can also add taste, color, and rich nutrition to sandwiches.

Today, I used fresh arugula to make chicken sandwiches. I seared chicken breasts, roasted pancetta, made the dressing, and added arugula and tomato to complete the sandwiches—all within 20 minutes. Not a bad experience for making a healthy, tasty, and convenient lunch on a time-crunched day.

Ingredients (For four sandwiches):
– About 2 ounces of fresh arugula
– 2 pieces of chicken breasts (about 1 to 1.5 pounds)
– About 2 ounces of pancetta
– 1 fresh tomato
– About 3 ounces of shaved parmesan cheese
– About 4 fluid ounces of light mayonnaise
– ½ teaspoon of anchovy paste
– 1 fresh lemon
– 4 cloves of garlic
– Olive oil
– 8 pieces of sourdough bread

Procedure:

Cut seared chicken into pieces and place on the sandwiches.

All done! Hope you like it.
