When I was a kid, my favorite place in the entire world to eat was Friendly’s.  Every time I would go out to eat with my family, my mom teased me because I ALWAYS got the same exact thing.  Grilled Cheese.  Good old American bread with fake, orange processed cheese food on it.  I will be honest and tell you that whenever I am back up in New England I try to find a Friendly’s so I can have one again!  It is certainly not the best tasting grilled cheese I have ever had but it brings back all sorts of good memories!  Now that I am a little older, my taste in food has changed significantly.  Instead of white bread I usually choose something with a bit more flavor and texture.  Instead of bland processed not quite cheese product I tend towards cheeses with more depth.  I am a huge fan of Cabot cheese so when I got a package full of goodies for National Grilled Cheese month I decided to see what I could create!

The Cabot chipotle cheddar had a nice sharp flavor with a hint of smoky heat.  It was the perfect addition to this grilled cheese recipe!  I added fresh onions and diced jalapenos for even more heat and flavor.  Any cubed chicken will work, whether you have it left over from a night of grilling or you cook it up from scratch just to make this grilled cheese.  This recipe makes a very filling meal so you could easily serve this with a side salad or some fruit for dinner on  a busy weeknight.

  1. Wow, Diane...that's a great taste combination for a grilled cheese. Can't wait to try it! Happy Grilled Cheese Month.
  2. I don't think I've ever tried that variety. I'll have to look for it next time I'm at the store.
