    This is a pillsbury recipe contest winner. It is a little time consuming for a sandwich, but the flavors are out of this world.

    Yummy! I did not add garlic to the mayo, just in case, but added extra to the chicken. Thanks for posting!

    Although I love garlic,a nd tend to use extra in most dishes, I felt the raw garlic added to the mayo was too overpowering, and overwhelmed the other flavors. Next time I will omit that garlic, and just use the garlic with the chicken. Other then that, we really enjoed this sandwhich, and will certainly make it again...YUM!
