After trying a similar sandwich in Hawaii, I was inspired to create my own. My sister-in-law contributed the marinade and together we came up with this hearty version.


  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 4 hard rolls or croissants
  • 1 cup finely shredded lettuce
  • 8 tomato slices
  • 4 green pepper rings
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise, optional


  1. In a blender, combine the first six ingredients; cover and process until smooth. Reserve 1/4 cup. Pour remaining sauce into a large resealable plastic bag. Add chicken; seal and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Drain and discard marinade from chicken. Broil chicken 4 in. from the heat for 5 minutes per side or until a thermometer reads 170°.
  3. On bottom half of each roll or croissant, layer lettuce, tomatoes, chicken and green pepper. Drizzle with reserved sauce; spread with mayonnaise if desired. Replace tops.
Editor's Note: Chicken may be grilled, covered, over low coals for 10-12 minutes or until juices run clear.
