A delicious spread made with fresh tarragon, chives, and goat cheese elevates this chicken and mushroom sandwich to a true gourmet treat.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 4 ounces goat cheese, chèvre, softened
  • 2 tablespoons fresh tarragon leaves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped
  • 1 medium sweet onion, sliced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 soft rolls
  • White truffle oil, optional – see notes

Instructions

  • If necessary, remove the tenderloins from the chicken breasts, then place them between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and gently pound them to an even thickness of about 1/2 inch.
  • Using 1 tablespoon of the oil, brush both sides of the chicken, then season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Combine the mayonnaise, goat cheese, tarragon and chives in a small bowl until smooth. Set aside.
  • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until soft and translucent, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Add the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, and continue cooking until the mixture is nicely browned, 6 to 7 minutes longer. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  • Increase the heat on the pan to medium-high and add the chicken. Cook until the juices run clear and there is no trace of pink in the center, 2-1/2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • To assemble the sandwiches, slice the rolls horizontally and spread a portion of the goat cheese mixture on each. Add the onion-mushroom mixture and chicken. Serve immediately.
  • Note: If you have some on hand, a drizzle of white truffle oil really adds a fabulous touch to these sandwiches. The flavor is subtle, but noticeable.
