We’ve been enjoying this Chicken Ranch Sandwich for lunch so much lately, I thought it deserved it’s own blog post!
You do not have to suffer through a boring, dry sandwich to stay in E mode! This Chicken Ranch Sandwich is so flavorful and moist, you won’t even miss the butter, cheese, and mayo.
Sometimes I add healthy fats to my hubby’s sandwich when he’s feeling a Crossover, but he usually prefers this Chicken Ranch Sandwich as an E!
Two tablespoons of the Fuel Pull Pickle Juice Ranch Dressing is what makes this sandwich shine. It takes the place of butter and mayo and adds a perfect level of creaminess and tang to the crunch and milder flavors of cucumber and lettuce.
Toasting the bread first gives you a sturdy structure on which to spread the Pickle Juice Ranch Dressing. It holds up wonderfully to the moisture, absorbing the flavor without becoming soggy or falling apart.
Layering on several slices of lean meat (I use 2 slices of smoked chicken breast, and one slice of deli black forest ham) also adds to the moisture and protein content.
Add a little mustard, and a slice of tomato and you’ve got a lean sandwich “fit for a King” (my hubby’s words, not mine!).
Since this Chicken Ranch Sandwich is an E, you can enjoy it on its own as a portable lunch option, pair it with an E soup (we love Spicy Sweet Potato Soup!), or serve it with a piece of fruit, such as an apple or an orange.

This looks wonderful! I was wondering if certain deli meat brands are better than others as far as sugar, etc. I usually get Sarah Lee or McKenzie here in Vt but it’s so hard to see the macros through the deli case.
I’m having a hard time finding the correct bread. Which brands do you enjoy?
Do you make your own bread or are you a DTS and if so what brand.
