"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."


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 2/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 can (4 ounces) whole green chiles, drained and sliced lengthwise
  • 4 slices Pepper Jack cheese or Monterey Jack cheese
  • 4 kaiser or sandwich rolls, split


  1. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. Place in a large shallow dish.
  2. In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and oil. Set aside 1/4 cup for basting. Pour the remaining marinade over chicken; turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Drain chicken, discarding marinade. Grill chicken, uncovered, over medium heat for 3 minutes. Turn and baste with reserved marinade; grill 3 minutes longer or until no longer pink.
  4. Top each with a green chile and cheese slice; cover and grill for 2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Serve on rolls.
