Classic Grilled Chicken Sandwich
2 5-Ounce Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1 Teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
½ Teaspoon Kosher Salt
¼ Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
1 Teaspoon Honey
½ Cup Mayonnaise
¼ Cup Barbecue Sauce
2 Teaspoons Lemon Juice
1 Tablespoon Honey
Pinch of Salt and Pepper, if needed
4 Martin’s Sandwich Potato Rolls
Red Onion, sliced
4 Slices Bacon, cooked
Step 1: Prepare the Marinade
In a shallow dish, combine olive oil, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, pepper and honey. Whisk to combine. Set aside.
Step 2: Prepare the Chicken
Carefully butterfly, or slice each chicken breast in half, lengthwise. Trim excess fat.
Place the chicken in a shallow dish with prepared marinade. Stir to coat. Allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes in the fridge.
While chicken is marinating, cook bacon, prep desired toppings, and prepare sauce.
Add mayonnaise, barbecue sauce, lemon juice, honey, salt, and pepper to a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
Heat up a grill, grill pan or cast iron skillet to medium heat. Add oil to prevent sticking. Cook each piece of chicken for three minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
While chicken is resting, brush the inside of Martin’s Potato Rolls with butter, and place on grill, grill pan, or in skillet to toast until golden brown.
To assemble sandwiches, spread prepared sauce on bottom half of Sandwich rolls. Layer lettuce, prepared chicken breast, bacon, sliced tomato, sliced red onion. Drizzle more sauce (if you like it extra saucy), add top of roll and enjoy!
