Everyone loves a grilled cheese sandwich, and everyone loves the cheese and apple combo. So, we brought them together with chicken for extra protein to make this sweet and crunchy lunchtime treat. It’s so...


  • 1 tablespoon grainy mustard, divided, or to taste
  • 4 slices rustic whole wheat bread
  • 3 ounces sharp white cheddar, sliced or shredded
  • ¼ Golden Delicious or Pink Lady apple, sliced very thin
  • 4 leaves butter leaf lettuce
  • 1 cup shredded rotisserie chicken

  1. Spread half the mustard on two slices of bread. Divide the cheddar evenly on both slices, then top with thinly sliced apples. Place under a broiler or in a toaster oven until the cheese melts.
  2. Toast the remaining two slices of bread. Spread the remaining mustard.
  3. Top the melted cheese bread slices evenly with chicken and butter lettuce, then the remaining slices of bread. Cut in half and serve.

Chef Tips

For a tarter taste, use Granny Smith or Braeburn apples.
