Hot Chicken Sandwiches with Gravy


Tis the season of super simple meals. My son’s high school musical “Little Shop of Horrors” is this weekend. Tech week for him means long rehearsals and late nights getting homework done. My daughter is still getting home about 9:30 pm or so from dance and college so I need something simple to feed her when she gets home too.

Verdict:

This is so easy to make and if you want to “cheat” use a couple of packets of gravy mix to make it even easier! My family kept saying how good this was. I think because it is so simple. And the gravy getting all sopped up with the bread? Yummy. My daughter asked if next time instead of white bread if we could put it over some cornbread stuffing. YES!!!
