Since the Sweet Apple and Chicken Stir-Fry I made a while back turned out so good, I figured this sandwich would be good also.  It had different seasonings from the stir-fry, but was just as delicious.  Yum!  This recipe consisted mainly of apples, onions and chicken, but the seasonings used and the laughing cow cheese on the bread was the reason it was so good.

The recipe called for sage as one of the spices to be used, which I never would have thought to use.  Sage is just one of those spices that sits there on my spice rack, rarely to be used, if ever.  Well, it worked perfectly in this recipe along with the garlic powder. The laughing cow cheese made the sandwich cheesy and creamy, making this another favorite Hungry Girl recipe of mine. So good!

This was another grilled sandwich recipe that calls for barely enough margarine to cover the bread.  If you are used to slathering your grilled cheese sandwiches with tons of butter, don't worry.  Believe it or not, it hardly takes any butter or margarine to made the sandwich nice and toasted.  I decided to trust her on this one the first time I made one of her grilled sandwiches, and was pleasantly surprised that she was right about using a small amount of butter or margarine.  I will never go back to the slather method again!
