Mushroom and Green Pepper Melts
with roasted broccoli

Active: 40 min Total: 40 min

Mushrooms and green bell peppers are a classic combination. Saute them just enough to be tender but still have a bit of crunch in these hearty hoagie melts.
Smarts: The original version of this meal features a simple tart-sweet "Malibu sauce" which makes a great sandwich spread that perfectly complements the flavors in these melts.

Loved how little prep there was, and such a yummy meal too! I would double the broccoli and the sauce next time.

Chicken was good. Loved the roasted broccoli. Sauce was ok, not my favorite sauce.

Chicken was very good and moist! I used white cheddar cheese, instead of swiss cheese for the topping.
