Lisa G's Chicken Juno

Yesterday and Tuesday, Chef Lisa G shared words of wisdom and tricks of her trade. Today, she gives us a cherished family recipe for the Chicken Juno Sandwich, an old favorite from the days of her namesake cafe and bar.

Our last name is Giungo (jun-go). No one could say our last name and my father was also in sales so he came up with a biz name of Joseph Juno. So when he created this recipe he called it Chicken Juno
