Honey Dijon Grilled Chicken Sandwiches should be on your menu this week!  It’s sweet from honey, tangy from mustard, salty from bacon, and a little earthy / nutty from cheese.  Pair it with some juicy, tender chicken and sandwich it between a pretzel bun or brioche bun and you have the perfect meal.  It’s simple to make, is packed with flavor, and will please everyone at the dinner table.

The recipe can be found here.

Start by making the sauce.  Add the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, honey, Dijon mustard, and salt to a mixing bowl.  Whisk to combine.  Taste and adjust the seasoning, if needed, and set aside.

Place the chicken in a Ziploc bag.  Pour ½ of the marinade into the bag then seal and place in the fridge to marinate overnight.  Cover the remaining marinade and place in the fridge to be used later.

Once the chicken is marinated, cook the bacon according to package instructions.  Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain the grease and set aside.

Preheat the grill.  Remove the chicken from the Ziploc bag and grill for 6-7 minutes on each side or until an internal temperature of 165 degrees F is reached.  Discard the marinade and bag.

Once the chicken is fully cooked, add a slice of cheese to each chicken breast and close the grill cover to melt the cheese, about 30 seconds.  I prefer to use provolone cheese but Swiss or cheddar would also work well.

Remove the chicken from the heat.

You are ready to assemble the sandwiches.  Spoon some of reserved sauce on the bottom half of each bun.  Add a chicken breast and top with 2 slices of bacon (cut in half if needed to fit).  Drizzle additional sauce on top and add the top half of the bun.  Serve and enjoy!

All you need is a few simple ingredients, most of which you probably have at home already, and you have a great sandwich!  This sandwich pairs well with fries, corn on the cob, baked beans, potato salad, or chips and dip – whatever you prefer.

Happy Cooking!
