Chicken Sandwich with Pineapple Macadamia Slaw

Chicken Sandwich with Pineapple Slaw on a bun.

Friday my husband and I spent the day in Asheville NC. It’s only about a 2 hour drive from our house and we don’t get there nearly enough We spent most of the day  at Biltmore House which is absolutely amazing. I don’t think there’s anything else like it in the whole country. And seeing it once isn’t enough. It’s so massive and there’s so much to take in visually, you’ll want to go again and again.

After a day of touring the house and grounds, stopping by the winery, plus visiting 3 breweries in Asheville, we were worn out not just that night, but the next day as well.

A grilled chicken sandwich is my go to meal when I’m too tired to spend much time in the kitchen. They’re quick to make, plus they’re healthy. Load them up with some slaw like this Pineapple Macadamia Slaw. The slaw has a wonderful combination of harmonious ingredients- pineapple, macadamia nuts, coconut, and cilantro. It’s heavenly on top of a nicely grilled and juicy chicken breast.
