Quiznos Tuscan Chicken Sub

Quiznos Restaurant Copycat Recipe

1 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon grated Asiago cheese
1 tablespoon grated Romano cheese
2 oz. sherry wine
1 tablespoon Spanish sherry vinegar
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 (8 inch) loaves of your favorite herb focaccia
1 mesquite seasoned cooked chicken breast cut into thin strips
12 slices tomato
2 1/2 ounces thinly sliced red onion
4 ounces chopped Romaine leaves

Bring cream to a simmer over medium heat; add garlic powder and all of  the cheeses. Return to a simmer and with a whisk stir cream till cheese is  incorporated.

Add the sherry and sherry vinegar and return to a simmer. Add black  pepper and adjust salt to your taste. (You shouldn't have to add salt since  most cooking sherry's contain salt and the cheese has natural salt from the aging process).

Preheat oven on the broiler setting. Cut the loaves of focaccia in half  so you have 4 four inch loaves. then cut those pieces in half length wise.  Ladle an ounce of the Tuscan Cream sauce on each half of focaccia.

Put some red onions on the bottom half of the Sub and three tomatoes on  the top half of each sub. Evenly disperse the chicken on the bottom halves  of the subs. Place the subs under the broiler open-faced for roughly 1 - 2  minutes or until the cheese is starting to brown slightly.

Remove subs and place a generous handful of the chopped romaine lettuce  on the bottom half. Fold the sub together, cut in half .
