Green Chili Chicken Sandwiches

"I enjoyed a sandwich similar to this in a restaurant and decided to try making it at home," writes Paula Morigeau of Hot Springs, Montana. "The spicy chicken is a quick-and-easy alternative to hamburgers when entertaining outdoors."

    The chicken was juicy and flavorful. It was too cold to grill so I cooked the breasts in a skillet. The sauce caramelized onto the meat creating a nice brown color. I used chopped green chilis under the slice of cheese and broiled it. Delicious
