Grilled Chicken Salad & Sandwich with Home Cut Fries (Yum!)

 

It’s officially hot.  For the past week we have hit temperatures of 90 degrees or more.  On days like this I am not the first one to want heavy gravy and rice for dinner.  Instead I prefer something light.  Unfortunately my appetite isn’t always the same as the kiddos.  On these occasions I opt for a compromise.  I look for recipes where I can cook one thing but vary it.  Grilled chicken is perfect for this.  I can use the grilled chicken to make a sandwich for the kids and a salad for me.  Sweet!
Servings: 2 grown people, 1 teen and 2 little people.
Prep Time: 20 mins (Realistically, with kids around maybe 30 mins)
