A good sandwich. Quick and easy. Used an indoor George Foreman grill. Subbed cheddar and a toasted english muffin. Might use some bbq sauce next time.

Excellent sandwich! I used chicken tenderloins instead of whole breasts simply because they were on sale. It worked well though. I seared the chicken on my cast iron grill pan then transferred it to my toaster oven sheet and covered them with cheese slices and then broiled them for a few minutes. We also served extra thousand island dressing on the side for dipping!

This was really good. I had to use what I had on hand which was just regular buns, instead of peppers I used sauteed onions, and I used fat free swiss. Will make again, Thanks.
