These are delicious! Tastes like they came from a good restaurant! Easy to make also. I pounded out my chicken breats to 1/4 inch thickness to make a cutlet before marinading and grilling. They fit nicely on the bun if you do this. I used King Hawaiian Sandwich Rolls , Romaine lettuce, and melted a slice of Muenster cheese on each breast before taking off the grill. The sauce is great on these. Go a big thumbs up from everyone. Adding to the rotation! Thanks!
Very tasty sandwiches!
The first time I made this, I just made the chicken as a main dish w/o the bun (still served each piece w/ a pineapple ring, and dollop of dill sauce- inside of the ring- on top), not only was it a pretty presentation, my hubby raved about the taste to everyone for days. Once I explained to him that the recipe actually had the chicken on a bun, he was officially won over, as he thought it would make an awesome sandwich (my guys are avid chicken sandwich eaters). I've made it both ways ever since, and it's always a quick and easy "go-to" recipe.
I made this for a party and everyone loved them! It is definitely a favorite and I will make over and over.
this was so easy to make. It is sweet and filling. This is a great recipie for summer too. Will make again
