  • A few slices of cucumber 25 g
  • Pinch of pepperoncinis or jarred mild banana peppers 15 g
  • Bib/butter lettuce
  • 2 Tbsp Whipped herbed feta recipe below (30 g)
  • 2 Tbsp Romesco sauce store bought will also work! (30 g)

For the Whipped Herbed Feta (8 Servings)

  • cup Greek yogurt 85 g
  • ¼ cup ⅓ less fat cream-cheese 62 g
  • ½ cup Crumbled reduced fat feta 56 g
  • Handful of basil chopped (7 g)

Instructions

  • Spray your bun with a mist of olive oil spray and toast face down in a pan over medium heat until golden brown. If using leftover blackened chicken, reheat in an air fryer for just a minute or the microwave at half power for 30 seconds. Repeat that process until JUST barely warm. Don’t recook!
  • Using a small food-processor, blend or pulse all of the ingredients for the whipped feta until smooth. Spread a couple of tablespoons on the bottom bun and top with cucumbers, tomatoes, warmed chicken, pickled onions, pepperoncinis, and lettuce. Spread romesco on the top bun, close your sandwich, and ENJOY.
