Raspberry Chicken Sandwiches

"My husband loves grilling in the summertime, and this is one of my family's favorite grilled sandwiches. The recipe makes a delightful raspberry flavored barbecue sauce for the grilled chicken breasts. Of course you can substitute your favorite flavor of preserves. This is a Taste of Home recipe.

  1. Heavenly!! One of DH and I's favorite sandwiches. The sauce is divine. I skinnied the recipe just a bit, using half reduced calorie jam mixed with regular raspberry jam and a lowfat swiss in place of the muenster cheese. I highly suggest grilling the chicken outdoors, as the smokey/flame mixes so wonderfully with the raspberry sauce. I double the sacue as well, and very glad I did.
  2. Wonderful, we made these today and it was great!! Very easy to make and the flavors were fantastic. Honestly not a combo I would have thought of, but I am so glad we tried this. It goes right into the favorites cookbook. Great for weekend lunch. Pac-Fall07
