Sriracha Tandoori Chicken Sandwich with Creamy Gouda Cheese Fondue

Sriracha Tandoori Chicken Sandwich with Creamy Gouda Cheese Fondue is my third post in the series #SandwichesAndBurgers.

Sriracha tandoori chicken is smothered in creamy gouda cheese fondue and topped with lettuce and sliced tomatoes. The mozzarella cheese ties the sandwich together between two perfectly crunchy grilled bread slices. Gouda is a Dutch yellow cheese made from cow milk. It is named after the city of Gouda in the Netherlands.

  4. For fondue: Melt 2 tablespoons butter in saucepan over medium-low heat. Add minced garlic and saute 1 minute. Take care to not allow garlic to brown too much. Stir in flour and cook, about 1 minute. Add half and half, continuing to stir until sauce begins to thicken. Bring sauce to boil. Add pinch of salt and black pepper. Remove the pan from heat and add shredded gouda cheese a little at a time, stirring until completely melted. The fondue is ready.

Broil for 1 minute till the cheese melts.
  7. Remove the bread slices from oven, spread enough chicken over 1 of the slices. Drizzle with generous amount of gouda fondue. Add lettuce leaf, tomato slice and top it with another toasted bread, cheese-side down. Assembly the other sandwich in similar way.
