Posts Tagged ‘Mimi’s Cafe’

This past weekend Erin and I got to spend a few hours together, this is very rare I mean like once every six months it seems nearly impossible for us to both get some time together and when we do, we usually go to lunch. This time we went to a place called Mimi’s Cafe. This restaurant is part of a chain that spans almost the entire southern half of the united states. If you have a Mimi’s and you haven’t been go there you wont regret it. My recipe tonight was inspired from a sandwich I ate this last time I visited.

La Femme

You will need:

Butter

Whole grain artisan loaf

lettuce or fresh greens

tomato

mayo

cheese your choice I added Swiss

classico brand pesto sauce

(it looks like this)

2 Chicken breasts

 

So first things first you need to cut your breast in half butterfly style so you can thin them out.

Pour about a tablespoon of EVOO  in a pan and toss your breasts in with a little salt and pepper. Fry these at medium high heat.

Meanwhile take about a 1/3 cup of  Mayo and 3 tablespoons of pesto (more or less to taste) and mix in a small dish.  At this point I added the cheese so it could melt once I had turned the chicken.

Slice up your bread loaf and butter both sides of the bread and toast lightly in another pan. Keep a watch on your chicken as you do not want it to be over done.

Once you bread is toasted your meat should be about done turn off the heat and let it rest for a few min while you build your sandwiches.

I spread the sandwich spread on both slices of bread then add lettuce and tomatoes I put the chicken on and.. voila it’s a la femme. I served this sandwich tonight with a side of soup however the sandwich is more than filling served alone.

Enjoy,

Kimmy (the sticks)
