"I quartered the recipe just to try it out with two skinless chicken breast & I wished I had made more! So delicious! I thought I was sitting in a steakhouse - it was that good! I toasted a bun on the grill & let cheddar cheese melt over the chicken, then spread bottled bbq sauce over it for the perfect sandwich."
