THIS Onion Tarte Tatin. I bet you could go and make it RIGHT now. You probably don’t even need to make a special trip to the grocery store. We are talking only seven ingredients. All of which are pantry staples.
That is of course if you consider puff pasty to be a pantry staple (OK, technically a freezer staple). If you don’t, you should. I always have a box on hand. Major life saver.
The simplicity of this dish gives it a rustic, down-to-earth quality. There is something familiar and comforting about sweet, slightly sticky onions and buttery, flakey puff pastry. But in it’s own way, this Onion Tarte Tatin is also very elegant. I find the radiating onions to be rather alluring and visually pleasing. It’s as beautiful to look at as it is to eat.
This Onion Tart Tatin would be a lovely addition to your Easter brunch. Or any Holiday table for that matter. It also makes a great lunch or light dinner when served with a side salad. And while I prefer to eat it in it’s purest form, a few crumbles of your favorite cheese (goat cheese or feta are good choices) on top wouldn’t hurt either.

Are you wondering why I named this sandwich “The Best Chicken Sandwich”? Is it because it truly is the most mouth watering, taste bud tingling, drool worthy sandwich in existence? Or is it because I couldn’t figure out a way to get all the important ingredients into the title without making it excessively long?
Truth be told, I think it’s probably a little bit of both.
My suggestion: make these babies TONIGHT and judge for yourself!
This chicken sandwich has it all: blueberry sauce, fresh basil, crisped bacon and earthy brie cheese. These few simple ingredients elevate a regular, boring piece of baked chicken into something that will make you say “WOW!”.
Oh and are you seeing a theme here with the ingredients? Everything starts with the letter “B”. That really wasn’t planned. It just sort of happened. So I toyed with “Blueberry and Basil Grilled Chicken Sandwiches with Bacon and Brie”. Or maybe “Grilled Chicken Sandwiches with Bacon, Blueberry, Brie and Basil”. But every iteration I tried was a major tongue twister. So all those “B” words got condensed into the word “Best”. Hence, I present you with The Best Chicken Sandwich.
This sandwich is the perfect mixture of salty, sweet, crunchy, melty and buttery. Which are pretty much all the adjectives that I need in life…or at least in a sandwich. And it’s fairly quick to pull together (prep everything while you cook the chicken and bacon in the oven!), making it a great choice for a weeknight dinner.
