I made this Grilled Artichoke Chicken Pita in my Garde Manger class.
Last week we each had to come up with an original hot and cold sandwich to prepare for Chef Franz.
My hot sandwich turned out so deliciously that I thought it’s be fun to share with all of you AND give y’all a little update on my Culinary School adventures 🙂
- ½ C chopped, cooked chicken breast
- ¼ C artichoke heart quarters, chopped
- 2 Tbsp red onion, diced
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 3 slices provolone cheese
- 1 piece pita bread
- Preheat oven to high broil.
- Place olive oil in a saute pan over medium high heat, add onions and cook 2 minutes until soft.
- Add chicken and artichoke hearts; warm through.
- Meanwhile spread cheese on open pita bread, place on baking sheet, broil 1 minute or until cheese is melted.
- Then spread chicken mixture over half the pita bread and fold the plain half over top.
- Set filled pita into saute pan, cook until lightly browned, turn over and cook again.
- Cut in half and serve warm.
Grilled Artichoke Chicken Pita is a quick and simple sandwich that’s perfect for lunch or dinner!
I ate mine with a homemade Apple Cherry Chutney (in the photo on the lettuce bed) that I made in class too… oh. my. It was a fabulous combination!
Here are some photo’s of other fun things I’ve been learning about in Garde Manger this block:
We learned how to make these adorable Apple Birds…
Delicious Fruit Platters and different ways to garnish with fruit…
Chef Franz taught us how to make these tomato roses out of tomato skins… I think they are adorable 🙂
I was really excited to learn to make sushi and spring rolls with peanut sauce… I love them both!
This is a collage of some of the hot and cold sandwiches we’ve learned to make…
I finally able to taste the infamous Monte Cristo sandwich- I LOVE that Lingonberry Jam and the sandwich was really good too!
We were able to taste all these amazing different kinds of cheese- everyday we make cheese platters and cheese tasting plates for the cafe.
Chef Franz is in the first photo below; he’s a wealth of knowledge, has a funny sense of humor, and he’s a really good teacher to boot 🙂
Yesterday we worked on cold appetizers and today we will be doing some hot ones…. aren’t they beautiful! Delicious too.
AND that’s the high lights from what I’ve been learning in my Garde Manger class this block. It’s been so awesome learning the savory artistic side of the kitchen.
