Mexican Style Chicken Sandwiches with Homemade Salsa
Posted Mar 10 2011 8:00am
Some nights, you just want a chicken sandwich. With cheese on it.
(If you are a vegetarian, this recipe would be fantastic with tofu or tempeh. Trust me, I’ve tried it).
This week, I have been eating all things Mexican!
My homemade salsa (it is crack)
Pepper jack cheese (new addiction)
As stated above, I made some fresh salsa a few days ago and it’s so good that I have been eating it with a spoon straight from the jar. I normally only do that with nut butter , but I will make an exception. For now…
Yeah, it’s that good.
I also picked up some pepper jack cheese that I swear is laced with some kind of addictive drug. I purchased a block three days ago and the wrapper is already in the trash
That can’t be a good sign…
4 (4-6ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (preferably organic)
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/8 tsp ground red pepper
1 TBS lime juice
Homemade salsa (recipe follows)
4 whole wheat buns
6 ounces of pepper jack cheese, thinly sliced
In a small bowl, stir together garlic, cumin, chili powder, ground red pepper, and lime juice.
Rub mixture on chicken.
Refrigerate chicken for 30 minutes to an hour to marinate.
Preheat a grill to medium high heat.
Grill 5 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Top with cheddar cheese and salsa.
