These lively sandwiches have a special feel with grilled bread and savory melted cheese, but they come together in less than 30 minutes! Samantha Anhalt of Spring Lake, Michigan shares the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • 1/2 cup salsa

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the oil and seasonings. Rub over both sides of chicken. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or a thermometer reaches 170°.
  2. Meanwhile, combine 1 cup cheese and mayonnaise; set aside. Grill bread on one side until lightly browned. Spread with cheese mixture; grill until cheese is melted.
  3. Place chicken on four slices of toast; top with salsa, remaining shredded cheese and remaining toast.
