Maple-marinated Broiled Chicken Sandwiches

So these were good and easy...and you could call them healthy...

1/4 cup maple syrup
1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 tbsp dijon mustard
8 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves/cutlets
8 rolls of some sort
Mayo, lettuce, red onion, and tomato for "garnish"

1. The night before you plan on eating them, make the marinade: Combine syrup, 1/2 cup water, yellow onion, mustard and chicken; refrigerate.

2. Either buy or make rolls/buns. I made oatmeal bread buns in my bread maker and I think it made them tons better than if I used store bought...it also made them that much more filling. Very easy.

3. The next day, heat oven to broiler. Coat pan/rack/whatever you're cooking the chicken on with non-stick spray.

4. Broil chicken, turning once half way through. I think it took about 9-10 minutes per side. (The time would differ depending on your altitude.) An instant read thermometer should read 160.

5. Eat. Yum.


  1. Those sound soooo good! It makes me hungry! Yummy :) I could make those.. well... except the bread maybe :P

  2. Chef Amy you always post these delicious food posts when I'm starving and had cereal for dinner! Those look divine!

  3. That looks yummy.

    I've got some chicken in the freezer that's begging for this treatment.

    Now, maybe I can convince Nichelle to bake me some big, crusty rolls. She's the only person around here who bakes.

  4. Oh, come on...you could if you tried.

  5. Maybe, but I dislike baking. It's alot of work for something that goes bad so very quickly.

    Mmmm, bread.


If you can't say something nice, say it behind my back.
