  • I would slice them into strips, add some peppers and onions. Sautee them in what ever you like, and throw them on a bun if you use barbeque sauce, or on a wrap using tomatoe sauce, with garlic and any seasonings you like. I have used tomatoe sauce some out of the small can, or fresh, with garlic. Your making me hungry. :)

    Ummmm your making me think about it. :)

  • for a grilled chicken sandwhich, i would use the grill, and not breading them is healthier - you should use adobo on it.
    but breaded chicken always tastes better, and that i think you pan fry.

  • grill-- brush with olive oil, shake on some seasoning and grill

    Then your house won't get all hot and there is less to clean up.

  • I like to use a light breading (like a shake-n-bake Italian flavor). Bake them in the oven b/c they get really juicy, then lay them on a bed of pasta, pour a little marinara over the top and voila! ~ Chicken parmesean. You can even add a slice of cheese to the top if you'd like. Yummy!

  • We made chicken sandwiches with left over grilled chicken last week, and they were great. When we grill them we hammer them out to an even thicknes and marinate them in Italian dressing or BBQ sauce.

    Fried is yummy, but not so healthy.

  • I use chicken breasts sliced into 1/2 inch thin fillets to make a spicy chicken fillet sandwich that everyone, even the kids, rave about.

    # 2/3 cup water (I add 1/2 tsp to 3/4 tsp. liquid smoke)
    # 1 cup all-purpose flour
    # 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
    # 4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
    # 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    # 1 teaspoon onion powder
    # 1/2 teaspoon paprika
    # 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
    # 4 thin chicken breast fillets
    # 4 plain hamburger buns
    # 8 teaspoons mayonnaise
    # 4 lettuce leaves
    # 4 slices tomatoes
    Combine flour and spices. Line a cookie sheet or broiler pan with foil and spray with vegetable oil spray. Dip chicken breast fillets in water, then flour mixture. Lay on foil. Spray the fillets with vegetable oil spray. Broil until done, turning once. Serve on buns with mayonnaise, lettuce and tomato slices.

  • I'd put them on the grill and have them grilled but if you insist on breading and frying I'd just use a pan with a bit of oii or use the fryer.

  • Grill the chicken-set aside.

    Melt butter in a pan, finely chop: celery, carrots and onion-saute in butter with 2 garlic cloves. Mix in chicken broth, and heat all the way through. Add chicken to sauce andto rewarm. 

    Grill bread. Dip grilled bread in sauce. Serve the sandwiches with dipping sauce.

     It's like a French dip, only with chicken.  You can put lettuce, tomato, etc on the sandwich too. We like this meal.

  • I also slice my chicken breasts (or pound thin), and marinate mine in dressing, but I like to use a raspberry vinaigrette. I grill it along with sliced veggies like eggplant, zucchini and bell peppers and serve it on toasted french bread. Even my 7 and 5 year olds like it! :)
