  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, and cook and stir until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the sliced onions and red peppers, and cook and stir for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Stir in the tomato juice and taco seasoning, and mix well. Cook mixture until the juice has thickened and the chicken is well coated with sauce, about an additional 7 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  4. Spread 2 tablespoons of salsa over each slice of French bread. Evenly spoon the chicken mixture on top of the salsa topped bread. Sprinkle each sandwich with 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese.
  5. Place sandwiches under the preheated broiler and cook for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and beginning to brown.

Quick, easy, and delicious! We really enjoyed these. Besides cutting the recipe down (there are just 2 of us), the only thing I changed was to omit the onions and added a clove of garlic to repl...

Very good! I put my chicken mix on a tortilla instead of bread and it came out delicious! :) I will be making this again, thank you laughingmagpie!

This was so easy and so full of flavor. The french bread is a nice touch too. I would have never thought of combining tomato juice with the taco seasoning for a sauce. I think I might even add s...

We had dozens of soft sandwich rolls leftover from a party and so we made this and put it on the half-slices. Toasted them first. This was delicious! And I will be making these to freeze for eas...
