I actually invented this at a campground, so you know it's easy. Using the same marinade for the chicken and veggies keeps it simple so we can spend more time outside and less making dinner. —Jayme Schertz, Clintonville, Wisconsin
An impromptu picnic inspired me to put together this dressed-up chicken salad sandwich. The sauce gives leftover poultry a scrumptious punch. An instant summertime favorite, these sandwiches have become a mainstay at our house.
“I like to slice the chicken into strips and serve them on a bed of salad greens on hot summer days. The chicken is great for cold sandwiches to take to work, too.” Eileen Rande - Farmington Hills, Michigan
My husband is a diabetic, so I'm always looking for great-tasting recipes that are low in sugar and carbohydrates. To reduce the sugar content of this recipe even further, I use diet cola.Mildred Dieffenbach, Womelsdorf, Pennsylvania
Simple yet elegant, this entree salad is one of my husband's favorites. We love the juicy chicken, fresh greens and bread that's toasted over an open flame. Add whatever beans your gang prefers.

My husband loves chicken, so when we bought our first charcoal grill, we needed a recipe for barbecued chicken. We ended up combining two recipes to come up with this one. We've used it the past 3 or 4 years now and haven't come across any recipe that's better.
This moist chicken, sent in by Wendy Molzahn of Beaumont, Alberta, is partially cooked in the microwave just before grilling to speed up cooking. The rosemary marinade enhanced the meat flavor...and there's enough sauce to set aside for basting.
“I love grilling chicken because it's a healthier choice,” shares Joe Slate from Port St. Joe, Florida. “I put my 'Joe-style' twist on this sandwich with a spicy-sweet marinade and a homemade blue cheese dressing.”
We often grill chicken in the summer, and this herbed version is a big hit with our family. We own a cheese and specialty food store called The Boulevard Market in nearby Tecumseh. I frequently host cooking classes at the store and have featured this chicken. Students are sent home with this recipe and always say their families enjoyed it!
