How to Make a Cajun Chicken Sausage Po Boy:
Begin the process by chopping your chicken sausage into small pieces.
Some use food processors to cut the veggies, but for this sandwich cutting your peppers and onions by hand will ensure the pieces are not too small. They are a huge part of the texture in this sandwich.
Cook your peppers and onions until they are soft and translucent.
Slice your bread lengthwise then pile on the ingredients before adding to the oven to melt your cheese.
I chose a Pugliese Loaf for the bread as it has more rustic Italian flavors and has a similar texture to ciabatta bread. For the cheese, Provolone was the only way to go.
The creaminess and smokiness of the cheese is a perfect complement to the sausage and peppers.
This recipe is one that I make any time I get a little homesick because it takes me right back to a time when life was as simple as making good grades and eating great food — like this sandwich.

12 oz. Smoked Chicken Sausage
1 Rustic Pugliese Loaf
1/4 cup Chopped Green Pepper
1/4 cup Chopped Red Pepper
1/4 cup Chopped Onion
1/4 cup Chopped Celery
1 tbsp. Fresh Parsley
3 Swiss Cheese Slices
3 Provolone Cheese Slices
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
Dash Red Pepper
Dash Garlic Powder
Begin by slicing your chicken sausage into small pieces. Chop the green pepper, red pepper, onion, celery and parsley into small pieces (if they didn’t come pre-chopped).
Pre-heat cooking pan to medium heat and add 1 tbsp of olive oil. Add all of your chopped peppers, onion, celery and parsley into the pan. Season with sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder and red pepper, stirring occasionally.
Cook pepper mixture for 5 minutes then add chopped chicken sausage into the pan. Cook for 10 minutes, covered.
Cut your bread loaf down the middle longways and add 3 slices of provolone cheese to one half and 3 slices of Swiss cheese to the other half.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Once your chicken and peppers are complete, spread the combined ingredients over the bottom half of the bread and place on a baking sheet. Leave the top half of the bread with the cheese side up and bake for 5 minutes, after 5 minutes place the top half onto the chicken mixture and cook for another 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
