February has arrived, and with it the first anniversary of our little outreach project at the Northfield Racquet Club in Waterloo – NEThyme Public Kitchen.
This week, we’ve been celebrating that milestone with some giveaways and, of course, some cake.
It’s been a lot of fun there, particularly getting to enjoy working with other local suppliers such as Block3, EcoCafe, Kellsons, Wellesley Gourmet, KW Cider and Innocente. It’s certainly clear that we’ve got an abundance of tasty options right in our own backyard.
To mark the anniversary, I’m sharing one of the favourite sandwiches at the club, this example featuring barbecued chicken and roasted apple on naan bread – it is so flavourful and comforting. Stop by our little spot and see what we’ve been up to.
BBQ Chicken Sandwich on Naan
- 1 apple, sliced
- 1/4 red onion
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 2 sprigs thyme, leaves removed
- Salt and pepper to season
- 2 cooked chicken breasts, sliced
- 1/2 cup maple chipotle BBQ sauce
- 8 Slices maple smoked cheddar
- 4 naan bread
Place pan on medium heat. Add olive oil then the apples, onions, thyme leaves, salt and pepper. Sauté until tender and golden remove to cool to handle.
In pan add sliced chicken breast, and BBQ sauce. Warm through.
Place the warm chicken on one half of each piece of the naan bread (you won’t need all the BBQ sauce), layer the roasted apples and then smoked cheddar. Fold the naan in half. Brush with olive oil and place on parchment-lined pan. Place another pan on top of the sandwich and bake in the oven for 12 minutes or until golden.
