How to make it

Step 1: Preheat grill or stovetop to medium heat, about 375-400 degrees F.

Step 2: In a separate pan – Preheat to medium heat to saute the sliced bell peppers and onions.

Step 4: Cut chicken breast in half. Beat each half until about 1/4 inch thick.

Step 5: Season your chicken with Weber’s Kick’n Chicken Seasoning.

Step 6: Grill chicken for about 6-8 minutes per side.

Step 8: While the chicken breasts are cooking add sliced bell pepper and red onion to the other pan with a high temp cooking oil or cooking spray. 

Cook veggies for 4-7 minutes.

Step 10: Melt butter and lightly spread on buns and grill them for about 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly toasted.

Equipment

All clad stovetop grill*: I love my all-clad stovetop grill. It has a ridged side for searing meat and a flat side for grilling veggies.

If you don’t have a stovetop grill, you can use a regular skillet or grill pan.

Notes

If you don’t have access to a grill, you can cook the chicken and veggies in a skillet.

Digital meat thermometer*:  I highly recommend using a digital meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of your chicken. Chicken is cooked when it reaches an internal temperature of 165.

Saucepan*: You will need a saucepan to cook the veggies.

Tongs*: You will need tongs to flip the chicken and veggies while they are cooking.

Spatula*: I like to use a spatula to remove the chicken when the cheese is melted on top.

Chefs Knife*: You will need a knife to chop the bell peppers and red onion. and to slice the chicken

Cutting board*: You will need a cutting board to chop the bell peppers and red onion.

Mallet meat tenderizer*: You will need a mallet to pound the chicken thin. If you don’t have a mallet, you can use a rolling pin.

Flatten chicken breast by using a mallet meat tenderizer or rolling pen.

Serving platter*: I like to use a serving platter to transfer the chicken from the grill to the plate.

4 plates*: You will need plates to serve the sandwiches.

Paper towels: Paper towels are always helpful to have on hand.

Variations

You can also try using different types of cheese on your sandwiches, such as mozzarella, cheddar, or Swiss.

Try using different types of bread, such as a ciabatta roll or sourdough bread.

Note: As a dietitian, I would love to see you stick with whole grain bread to up the fiber and nutrient content.

If you avoid gluten, be sure to use gluten-free bread. 

You could also forego the bread altogether and turn this into a salad by grilling the chicken and veggies and adding them to a bed of greens.

You could also use different types of seasonings, such as Cajun seasoning or Italian seasoning.

For a lighter sandwich, you can skip the cheese.

You could also add avocado, tomato, or lettuce to your sandwich.
