Grilled Chicken Sandwich – Perfect Summer Meal!

Summer is the perfect time to fire up the bbq and make juicy grilled chicken sandwiches!

Marinated chicken breasts are grilled to tender perfection and topped with a quick homemade honey mustard sauce and our favorite garden-fresh toppings. This sandwich is a favorite all year long!

Perfect to Make Ahead

Honestly, the best chicken sandwich is one that’s simple to make, tender, juicy, and topped with fresh goodies!

It’s great to prepare ahead of time and toss on the grill for guests (or at the beach). Prep the chicken and add to the marinade in a tightly sealed container and take it along or stash it in the fridge until dinner time.

Add crisp bacon, or make it spicy with your favorite sauce toppings! It’s nearly impossible to mess this one up! We love the lightly toasted sesame bun, and the marinade is to die for, with its delicious combo of zesty and sweet!

Ingredients & Variations

CHICKEN
Stick with chicken breasts or use boneless/skinless chicken thighs, for a super juicy chicken sandwich.

BUNS
This recipe calls for a toasted sesame bun, but feel free to sub it out with any of your favorites like buttery brioche! Or whip up some homemade garlic bread or even jalapeno cheddar bread, and serve it up sandwich-style!

SAUCE
We love the way honey mustard sauce perfectly complements, but the marinade is so versatile that any sauce will pair well with it. Try sriracha, BBQ, homemade mayo, or whatever strikes your fancy!

How to Make a Grilled Chicken Sandwich

Prepping chicken for the grill has never been easier and results in a sandwich that’s going to taste restaurant-worthy! Here’s the basic overview:

  1. Marinate Chicken
    Combine marinade ingredients(per recipe below). Pound chicken to an even thickness and marinate.
  2. Grill
    When ready to cook, preheat the grill then grill the chicken 5-6 minutes per side and toast the buns (I do this right on the grill too).
  3. Add toppings and serve!

These taste amazing alongside grilled potato packets or grilled vegetables, and a crunchy salad! Add some corn on the cob for a feast fit for a king!

Tips for Success

  • Use a meat mallet and cutting board to pound the chicken to 1/2 inch thickness. The secret to perfectly grilled chicken is even meat, so try to make sure that the entire breast is the same thickness. No meat mallet? No problem, just use the rounded side of a heavy metal spoon!
  • When making grilled chicken, be sure not to overcook.
  • For baking the chicken rather than grilling, go ahead and use the broiler in the oven. Put chicken 4″ from the heat and broil 5-7 minutes per side (or until it reaches 165°F).
  • Marinate for 30 minutes or up to 4 hours. Any longer than that and the meat won’t have the same consistency after cooking since the marinade will start to “cook” the meat.

Ingredients

This recipe is made with a handful of staple ingredients!

CHICKEN Boneless chicken breasts are a favorite in this recipe but chicken thighs work too. If you only have split chicken breasts, be sure to remove the skin before adding to the slow cooker and remove the bones once cooked.

BEER Light beer works best in this recipe, it tenderizes the chicken for the perfect juicy bite and adds flavor to the sauce.

No beer? No Problem! Skip the beer and add chicken broth instead. It’ll change the flavor slightly but still be great.

BARBECUE SAUCE Use your favorite brand of barbecue sauce (or better yet homemade bbq sauce) for this recipe. It is a primary flavor in this recipe, so pick the one you love!

How to Make Shredded Chicken in Crockpot

This recipe is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Place all ingredients in the slow cooker
  2. Cover and cook on until tender.
  3. Remove chicken and shred chicken using two forks. Stir in some of the juices and additional bbq sauce if desired.

A Note About the Sauce: Chicken can sometimes produce more or less juice. Once your chicken is cooked, you may have a lot or a little bit of juice. Remove the chicken and shred separately.

Add in as much of the juices and sauce as needed. As it sits, the chicken will soak up the juices so don’t throw away any extras in case you want to add more!

How Long to Cook Chicken in Crockpot?

When it comes to making crock pot chicken right, we’ve got you covered!

  • Cook on high about 4-5 hours.
  • Cook low and slow is my preference and tends to keeps the chicken more tender. Cook on low for 7-8 hours.
  • Keep on warm once cooked and shredded to serve at gatherings.

When a meat thermometer reaches 165°F in the thickest part, dinner is served!

Overview of a crockpot BBQ chicken sandwich with chips

What to Serve with Crockpot BBQ Chicken

The best sides for Crockpot BBQ chicken are:

Salads: Potato, Macaroni, Coleslaw, Italian pasta salad

Rolls and Wraps: Hamburger buns, ciabatta rolls, wraps, tortillas, dinner rolls (for sliders)

Or Serve Over: Mac and Cheese, Baked Sweet Potatoes, Mashed Potatoes, Oven Baked Rice

Leftovers

Crockpot BBQ is like meat sauce in that it tastes just as good (or even better) the next day if there’s any left!

Be sure to store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator until it’s time to serve it again. Keep in mind the shredded chicken will soak up the sauce as it sits so add some extra barbecue sauce if needed.

It also freezes perfectly, just put it in a zippered bag with the date on it – it should keep for a couple of months in the freezer!

Lentil Sloppy Joes {Pantry Ingredients}

Lentil Sloppy Joes on a plate

Lentil Sloppy Joes are a rich, filling, and inexpensive meal.

Tender lentils are simmered in a zesty homemade sloppy joe sauce and piled high on hamburger roll! They’re easy to make and use mainly pantry ingredients that you likely have on hand!

A lentil sloppy joe prepared on a plate.

Pantry Ingredients

No need to make a special trip to the grocery store, you likely have most of the ingredients for this recipe on hand!

This meatless main has all of the flavors found in a traditional sloppy joe recipe but replaces the ground beef with lentils. This dish happens to be vegetarian (with a couple simple swaps) but meat lovers rave over it just the same.

The sauce is zesty and delicious while the lentils make this hearty and filling and the whole thing comes together in no time at all!

Lentils topped with remaining mixture ingredients in a frying pan.

Ingredients

LENTILS This recipe calls for dried brown lentils but you can easily sub in whatever lentils you have on hand. While the texture may differ slightly they’ll all work just fine.

If using canned lentils, be sure to skip the boiling (and the broth) and to drain them well.

Canned vs Dry When replacing dried lentils with canned lentils, remember that 1 cup of dried lentils equals approximately 2 cups of canned or cooked lentils.

SAUCE This tangy sauce combines a handful of condiments you are likely to have in your fridge already.

Variations: If you’re running low on prepared mustard, try swapping in dijon or brown mustard. Out of ketchup? Tomato sauce makes a great replacement!

BUNS Serve on hamburger buns, dinner rolls, or even slices of bread if that is what you have on hand. It’s also great over cooked brown rice or pasta!

Lentil mixture prepared in a frying pan.

How to Cook Lentil Sloppy Joes

Lentils cook faster than dried beans because they are smaller and softer. Always rinse and pick out any small stones or debris that might be in the bag with them.

  1. Saute onions and peppers until softened (per recipe below)
  2. Add lentils and broth and simmer until tender.
  3. Stir in sauce ingredients and cook a few minutes until thickened.

Scoop onto hamburger buns, top with sliced onions, tomatoes, or a dollop of sour cream and serve immediately!

Easy Variations

  • Add Meat: Add 1/2 pound of cooked ground beef and reduce broth and lentils by half.
  • Slow Cooker:  Combine all ingredients in the slow cooker (no need to precook lentils), increasing broth to 2 cups. Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 8-10 hours. To thicken, allow to cook on high 30 minutes with lid removed if needed.
  • Seaosnings:  Add taco seasoning or extra chili powder into the lentil mixture.

Serve With…

Add in a fresh side salad, classic coleslaw or creamy carrot salad!

The Chicken Sandwich Craze

If you’ve been following the news, you’ve probably heard all about it, but the popular fried chicken chain that hails from the south, Popeye’s, debuted its new fried chicken sandwich. With some clever tweets, in no time at all, curious eaters were lining up to get a taste of this extra crunchy delight!

3. Remove chicken from the brine, dip in the dry dredge, dip in the wet batter and then back into the dry mixture. (TLDR: Dry, wet, dry, fry).

4. Fry until crispy, 3-4 minutes per side.

How to Make Fried Chicken Crispy

The dredge and batter for this chicken sandwich is made with cornstarch which expands when it is added to a liquid and to create the perfect crispy, crunchy coating for this sandwich.

CHICKEN BREASTS

  • If your chicken breasts are large, cut them in half.
  • Pound the thicker end to 1/2″ to 3/4″ thick so they cook evenly.

BATTER

  • Dredge the chicken breasts into the dry mixture first; this helps the wet batter adhere.
  • The wet batter should be about the consistency of pancake batter.
  • A second dip into the dry mixture before frying adds great flavor and crunch to the sandwich.

FRYING CHICKEN

  • Ensure oil is hot (350°F) using a deep fry thermometer.
  • When adding the chicken, the temperature can drop so increase the temperature if needed to keep the oil at 350°F.
  • Drain on paper towels, keep warm in a 250°F oven if you need to make several batches.

How Long to Fry Chicken

Fry each chicken breast until golden brown on both sides, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Make sure the internal temperature is 165°F. Remove cooked pieces and drain on paper towels.

To assemble crispy chicken sandwiches, toast the sesame seed buns in the broiler after brushing them with butter. Spread some mayonnaise on each half, add lettuce, pickles, and of course the chicken.

Voila! A tasty crispy chicken sandwich and you didn’t have to leave the house or wait in any lines for!

Chicken Sandwich Toppings

There are all kinds of great toppings for chicken sandwiches! Why not try some thinly sliced, sautéed yellow onions or a spoonful of coleslaw? Of course, a thick slice of Provolone or Swiss cheese will add a creamy element to the flavor. Even a few sliced jalapenos kick it up a bit! Ripe tomatoes, honey mustard sauce… anything goes!

Mouthwatering Pork Teriyaki!

Pork Teriyaki is one of the most delicious ways to prepare pork tenderloin.  Packed with mouthwatering umami flavor, teriyaki pork can be grilled, baked in the oven, or prepared it in your slow cooker.

Scrumptious and low in fat, a perfectly cooked pork tenderloin is a fork-tender cut of meat, and is super juicy when treated right. It really benefits from quick cooking at a high temperature and marinating in a rich liquid or sauce, such as teriyaki marinade for pork.

Pork Teriyaki

When you’re making pork teriyaki, don’t make the mistake of buying pork loin in place of tenderloin. Although it sounds very similar, pork loin comes from a different part of the animal, and is a fattier, tougher cut that benefits more from low, slow roasting.

Pork tenderloin is a boneless, lean cylinder piece of meat and it’s perfect for slicing into medallions, as called for in this teriyaki pork tenderloin recipe. Be aware that pork tenderloin often has a tough section of silvery-white connective tissue on parts of the surface, known as “silverskin.” The silverskin does not soften with cooking, and needs to be trimmed off before slicing. It’s white/silver in color. Slip a knife under this piece of tissue and remove it before marinating or cooking.

Choose Thick Teriyaki Sauce

Teriyaki Sauce is made with soy sauce as the foundation and has brown sugar for sweetness and garlic and ginger for flavor. It’s the sugar that makes teriyaki such a great marinade for meat. When proteins in meat combine with sugars or carbs during cooking, the result is a delectable caramelized glaze.

If you buy bottled teriyaki, be sure to get the thick teriyaki sauce (you want the consistency of bbq sauce, not the one that is runny like soy sauce).

How to Make Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin on the grill is as easy as 1,2,3:

  1. Slice the pork loin into chunks and pound to 1/2″ thick.
  2. Marinate in teriyaki sauce (4-5 hours if you have time)
  3. Place on a medium-hot grill, 3-4 minutes per side (it’s quick)!!

Remember that pork tenderloin should be cooked to 145°F and can be a little bit pink in the middle. It only needs a few minutes each side.

Serve on a bun or over rice with steamed broccoli and enjoy! We always toast the rolls with a bit of Homemade Garlic Butter for great flavor. Add in some cucumbers and cilantro for freshness and enjoy!

If you’re not up to grilling, then teriyaki pork can be broiled in the oven. Place on a foil lined pan (teriyaki sauce is sticky and difficult to clean) and broil 4″ from the heat for about 5 minutes per side or just until pork reaches 145°F.
