Chicken Alfredo Subs

Doesn't that just sound too tasty to be true? All the creamy, dreamy goodness of alfredo sauce and the lovely flavor of chicken all rolled into a handy sandwich...I'm hungry for it all ready! Would you ever beleive that I can make 4 of them for under $2 - not $2 a serving, but $2 total?? This is going to be lunch for tomorrow - and I can't wait! I bet hubby really likes this one.

4 sub rolls or french rolls (free after Jewel coupon)
1 large chicken breast ($1.29)
salt and pepper ($.10)
1 C. alfredo sauce (free after coupons)
1 C. baby spinach (free after Jewel coupon)
1/2 C. mozzarella cheese ($.20)
1/4 C. parmesan cheese ($.15)

In a nonstick pan, add 1 tsp. oil over medium high heat. Once oil is hot, add chicken breast (seasoned with salt and pepper to taste), and cook for 5-7 minutes per side, chicken is done when it's golden on the outside and juices run clear. Let rest 5 minutes, then slice very thin.

Warm alfredo sauce in a pan on the stove for 5-6 minutes, or until it reaches desired temperature. Or if you prefer, serve the alfredo sauce at room temperature.

Cut each roll in half and top with 1/4 of the chicken mixture. Top each sammies with shredded mozzarella, a sprinkling of parmesan, and drizzle with alfredo sauce. Top with spinach and serve.

Yields = 4 sammies
Cost: $1.74
Cost per sammie: $.45
