Roast chicken sandwich & blue cheese/bacon jam potatoes

Roast Chicken "Torta"

There’s a panaderia around the corner from Joel’s that sells fresh baked bread for tortas (and they’re only $0.50/each!). We had just roasted a chicken for lunch (the joy of being a student with odd hours ends very soon) and were hungry but apathetic about dinner. So we made roast chicken tortas with avocado, queso fresco, spinach and Vietnamese pickled carrots & daikon. Fast, fresh and tasty!

Roasted Potatoes w/blue cheese & bacon jam

We also had some red potatoes and blue cheese leftover from when Joel’s mom cooked dinner, so I also sliced the potatoes and roasted them along with the chicken (pictures I won’t bore you with). After they finished roasting, I tossed them with some blue cheese and bacon jam. Decadently delicious!

Baconfest Chicago is tomorrow–can’t wait!

    Its a tasty, novel item that’s worth a try. However, you can probably make it yourself if you just caramelize/render some onions with bacon fat and throw some bacon chunks in.
