Lately, my lunches have primarily been a salad. They are always leafy and yummy but I have been craving a good sandwich. Something full, crunchy, and hearty. My family always has grilled chicken in the fridge (we grill a lot), and decided to try a chopped chicken sandwich.
This Carolina Reaper Chicken Salad is all the things I was looking for and more! It is super spicy, made with the hottest pepper in the world. Carolina Reaper Peppers have many health benefits, the Capsaicin in peppers will boost your metabolism. Ranked as the hottest pepper in the world with an average of 1,641,000 Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) you might need some tips on how to reduce the pepper burn.
The tomatoes add a fresh cool bite to the heat of the Carolina Reaper. Arugula is said to be a superfood, full of vitamins and cancer-fighting agents. All around this sandwich is full of flavor and ingredients you love. Let me confirm for you that lunchtime is no longer boring.
