Makes: 4  servings Prep 15 mins Start to Finish 1 hr 10 mins


  • 1/4 cup  red wine vinegar
  • 7 tablespoons  sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon  dried oregano, crumbled
  • 2 small red onions, sliced
  • 1/2 pound  purchased rotisserie chicken, shredded
  • 3/4 cup  tomatillo salsa, plus additional for side
  • 1/2 pound  pepper Jack cheese, sliced
  • 4 brioche or sandwich rolls, split


1. Simmer vinegar, sugar, 1/2 cup water, and the oregano in a small saucepan, stirring occasionally, about 2 minutes. Add onions and simmer, 2 minutes. Transfer mixture to a bowl and chill, loosely covered, about 1 hour.

2. Preheat oven to 400 degree F. Toss chicken with salsa until combined well. Divide and layer half of cheese, the chicken mixture, then the remaining cheese on bottoms of buns and arrange on a shallow baking sheet with bun tops on side, cut sides up.

Serve remaining salsa on side. Makes 4 servings.
