Roast Chicken French Dip

Updated: Jul 4, 2022

Spin on the French Dip with chicken, au jus, melty cheese, caramelized onions, garlic aioli and crisp greens

I’m a huge fan of Food Network and all of the chefs, and one of the most prominent lately is Amanda Freitag. She opened a new spot in Dallas, just before I moved and I saw one of their sandwiches the other day, which inspired this dish. It’s a Roast Chicken French Dip: roasted chicken, jus, provolone cheese, caramelized onions, garlic aioli, and lettuce all on a toasty bun. This is one of those sandwiches where you get a little of everything in each bite. Juicy chicken, ooey gooey cheese, the tang from the garlic aioli, sweetness of the onions and crispy refreshing veg from the greens. Let’s go in for a big dunk of jus and make sure you have a napkin cause you're going to need it!
