EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the original.

Spinach is a nice substitute for the romaine, or mix spinach and romaine instead.

The chicken can be used warm, or you can cook it ahead of time and store it in the fridge until you make the sandwiches.
