Spicy Chicken & Smoked Sausage Sandwiches

The hubby made lunch today after church and it was DE-LI-CIOUS! He loves to just throw things together and 98% of the time it turns out great. He's come a long way since his vegetable chili (one of the few things he cooked from scratch before we got married).

3 medium chicken breasts, cut into 2" chunks
1 ring smoked beef sausage, cut into 3/4" sections
1 package Ortega jalapeño and onion taco seasoning
kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
1/2 a vidalia onion, rough chopped
1/3 cup water
6 muenster cheese slices
6 kaiser rolls, lightly toasted

Sauté chicken and onion in olive oil for 3-5 minutes, add remaining ingredients. Simmer another 10-15 minutes, till chicken is cooked and sausage is heated through.

Spicy Cream Sauce
1/2 cup half-n-half
2 tablespoons butter
3-4 tablespoons Ken's Sweet Vidalia Onion Dressing
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons water

In a small saucepan, melt butter. Add half-n-half, dressing, cayenne, parsley, salt and pepper. Cook on medium till sauce starts to bubble. In a separate container, combine water and cornstarch; drizzle mixture into sauce while whisking. Remove from heat when sauce thickens.

Sandwich Assembly
Bun, meat mixture, drizzle with 2-3 teaspoons of sauce, top with cheese and bun. Enjoy!!
