Chicken Salt Grilled Cheese

The fine folks at Jada Chicken Salt were kind enough to send all of us at 37 Cooks a generous sampling of all their Chicken Salt flavors to use and come up with some original recipes. When I signed up for this particular challenge, I had no idea what I was gonna make. At lunchtime one day, I came up with an inspiration! I was planning on making a grilled cheese sandwich and thought I'd try the Chicken Salt on it! Now, most grilled cheese sandwiches are made using butter on the outside of the bread. But, I've been using mayo instead and I thought, why not use Sriracha mayo along with the Chicken Salt? Here's what I ended up with!

Chicken Salt Grilled Cheese
by Matt the Butcher

2 slices plain white bread
2 slices deli-style American cheese
1 teaspoon Low Sodium Chicken Salt
1/2 teaspoon Barbeque Chicken Salt
2 or 3 teaspoons Sriracha mayo

Preheat a small cast iron skillet over medium heat until drops of water sizzle when sprinkled in it. While the pan is heating, lay out the 2 slices of bread. Sprinkle the Chicken Salts on the bread slices and spread the Sriracha mayo over the Chicken Salt. Lay one slice of bread in the hot pan, mayo side down. Next, lay the 2 slices of cheese on the bread and top with the other slice of bread, mayo side up. Cook until nicely browned, then flip and cook the other side and there ya go! The best grilled cheese ever!!

  1. Tried this - it's great! I never would have thought to add chicken salt (or any seasoning) to a grilled cheese sandwich, but it makes the sandwich even more savory than usual. Perfect wintertime eats, especially with a hot bowl of split pea soup. Thanks!
