These delicious sandwiches will have your family and friends raving at your next cook out! They are a crowd pleasing twist on traditional chicken on the grill, yet so easy to make!
I happen to like a more "sturdy" bun than traditional hamburger buns, I think they hold up better to the grilled chicken. So grab a good quality bun for this one!
Jan's Tip: Today I used thicker slices of leftover ham from a Sunday Dinner,but I also use and pile on thin slices of store bought deli ham from the sandwich meats section of the store!
I love to add in fun topping options too, such as grilled pineapple slices and green peppers, to give it a more "Hawaiian" flare if my guests wish!
Jan's Secret: Shhh! I usually turn my buns into grilled garlic bread buns when I cook out! I butter both the bottom and top bun and sprinkle on my garlic bread seasoning (a mix of parmesan cheese, granulated garlic, and italian seasoning) then put it butter side down on the grill till toasty.
Lets' get started!
