Description

This indulgent dish is perfect for entertaining. It's richness is courtesy of bechamel sauce, here flavored with ketchup (for extra flavor but also color), and which is what bind together the layers: toasted bread, sauteed chicken and chicken (or turkey) sausages, chorizo, ham, and cheese as the topping. What's great about this recipe, besides all that, is that it calls for heating the assembled dish in the microwave to melt the cheese.

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 4 sausages (canned poultry)
  • 6 slices whole wheat bread (without crust)
  • 1 tablespoon margarine
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 4 tablespoons ketchup
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 8 slices Flemish cheese
  • 4 slices chorizo
  • 2 slices deli ham
  • dried oregano

Directions

  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan and cook chicken on both sides until golden.
  3. Remove from pan and set aside on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess grease.
  4. In the same frying pan, sauté sausages - sliced in 3 pieces lengthwise - and set aside.
  5. Toast bread slices.
  6. For the béchamel sauce, melt margarine in a saucepan, add flour, mix and brown lightly.
  7. With a whisk, stir in milk and bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly.
  8. Once the sauce begins to thicken, remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.
  9. Stir in ketchup, mix well and set aside.
  10. Arrange the layers as follows: bread, chicken, sausage, bread, chorizo, ham, bread.
  11. Cover all the layers with the slices of cheese, including the sides. Drizzle with béchamel sauce.
  12. Briefly heat in microwave or preheated oven broiler to melt the cheese.
  13. Sprinkle with dried oregano.
  14. Serve warm.
