Greek Chicken Ciabatta Sandwiches with Tzatziki Sauce

Greek Chicken Ciabatta Sandwiches with Tzatziki Sauce

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by RawSpiceBar to try out their monthly spice packets. I love to cook and so does my husband (well he grills and smokes meat and cheese) so I was excited to try out some new spice blends! The monthly spice subscription makes a great gift or is an inexpensive way to upgrade your cooking and try some new flavors. One of the spice blends we received for November was the Greek Salt Free Seasoning. This seasoning is packed with Greek oregano, lemon peel, thyme, freshly ground Tellicherry peppercorns and a very light touch of nutmeg and cinnamon and smells amazing! This light and tangy salt free seasoning works perfectly for a homemade gyro sauce, chicken dry rub, Greek shish kebabs, baked potato fries, lemon and olive oil dressing or in olive oil with grilled veggies. I decided to create a quick and easy Greek Chicken Sandwich with it that the whole family loved.

    1. I got a new design a while ago... I think it was spring? Maybe if you had cookies saved on your computer it was looking like the old design though? Who knows!
