Maple Chicken Sandwiches

  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • multi-grain soft rolls
  • 1 cup cranberry chutney
  • 8 leaves green lettuce
  • 1 large tomato, thinly sliced
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced

Combine syrup, water, yellow onion, mustard, and chicken in self-sealing plastic food storage bag. Refrigerate overnight.

    Slice rolls in half, and spread each bottom with 2 tablespoons of chutney. Add lettuce, tomato, and red onion. Grill or broil chicken breasts, turning once, approximately 5 minutes on each side (or until internal temperature at thickest part reads 170 degrees F). Add chicken to the prepared rolls and serve hot.

      Makes 8 sandwiches.
