Nordstrom Bistro Chicken Club Sandwich Recipe with Roasted Garlic Aioli | What’s Cooking
Looking for the next best sandwich recipe? The version served at our Nordstrom Bistro and Bazille restaurants is our take on a pretty classic club with perfectly roasted chicken, crisp bacon, umami-rich tomato. Then we up the gourmet factor with creamy avocado, tender-crisp haricot verts and (here’s the kicker) our secret sauce: Roasted Garlic Aioli. Secret’s out! Our Bistro Club is perfect for a picnic, or prep everything in advance for a quick and tasty weeknight dinner.
Bistro Club Sandwich
From our Nordstrom Bistro and Bazille
Roasted Garlic Aioli
2 cups mayonnaise
1 clove garlic, finely minced
3 tablespoons roasted garlic
2 tablespoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed
3/4 teaspoons kosher salt
In a small bowl, whisk all ingredients until well combined. Cover and refrigerate until needed, up to 4 days.
Bistro Club Ingredients (per sandwich)
1 ounce haricot vert
2 slices country bread
2 tablespoons Roasted Garlic Aioli
1/4 ounce mixed baby lettuce greens
5 slices Roma tomato, sliced 1/4 inch thick
3 slices bacon, cooked
3 ounces roast chicken breast, sliced thinly
5 slices avocado, sliced 1/4 inch thick
Freshly ground black pepper
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add haricot verts and blanch until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Drain and shock beans in ice water until cool. Transfer to a double thickness of paper towel and pat dry.
- Toast the country bread and spread Roasted Garlic Aioli edge to edge on each upward-facing side. Add the baby greens and tomato. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Top with the bacon, sliced chicken, haricot verts and avocado. Season again with a little salt and pepper. Cover ingredients with the other slice of bread and cut sandwich in half on a slight bias.
- Serve, as we do, alongside french fries and Kalamata Olive Aioli for dipping.
