The pre-cooked chicken comes to the rescue in this delicious Cuban sandwich variation. While a traditional Cuban sandwich would have slabs of slow-roasted pork, sometimes you just don’t have time for that. In this weeknight version, we replace the pork with chicken for a quick lunch or easy dinner - for best results we recommend eating them while they’re still hot just out of the pan and a good serving of Bob Evans Macaroni & Cheese!
