Chicken Florentine Chaffle Sandwich!

On my birthday I would always request that my mom would make her famous chicken Florentine sandwich. The original recipe used pillsbury pizza dough as the sandwich crust, which would not work on our keto lifestyle. I was craving this sandwich so I decided to recreate it using chaffles as the “bread” element. Try this one out! You wont regret it!

Ingredients

(9-oz.) pkg. frozen chopped spinach
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon montreal chicken seasoning (or any italian spice blend)
1 tablespoon olive oil (to saute red onion)
1 cup chopped red onion
1 sugar replacement, I used swerve
2 tablespoons redwine vinegar
2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning (on chicken breasts)
4 slices provolone cheese

Chaffle recipe (made 6 dash sized chaffles)
1 cup of shredded moz cheese
4 tablespoons of almond flour
1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder

Instructions:

Brine chicken breasts in salt water for 30 mins. Dry off moisture, put montreal season on both sides of chicken. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 25 mins or until the internal temp is 165. Let chicken rest. Slice thinly.

Defrost spinach, drain water.

Chop red onion, add to skillet on medium heat with olive oil. Add in red wine vinegar and sweetner. Let reduce until onions are translucent and soft.

Mix mayo, garlic powder, italian seasoning and salt to taste, put in the fridge to keep cool.

Make chaffles by combining mozzarella cheese, eggs, baking powder and garlic powder. Put a heaping tablespoon into the mini waffle maker and spread it into an even layer. Check it occasionally to make sure they are not burning. Keep chaffles in warm oven until ready to assemble sandwiches.

Melt provolone cheese on on side of the chaffle. Spread garlic mayo on the bottom chaffle. Put sliced chicken, spinach and red onion, add more garlic mayo on the top and put top chaffle to complete the sandwich. Enjoy!

You can use a large waffle maker for this but I really like using the dash because it makes the perfect sized chaffle for sandwiches and burgers.
