Paprika Honey Chicken Grilled Chicken Sandwich

My number one fast-food guilty pleasure, the McChicken, inspired this recipe. How glorious and simple that sandwich is and coming in at only a dollar! It is a great excuse to get 2!

I have made my health a priority, so my McChicken indulgences are less frequent than they were in my earlier twenties. I do not know if I could 100% give them up, but everything in moderation right.

After having a deep craving for one of these sandwiches one evening, I came up with a healthier spicy-sweet version of my favorite fatty meal. At home, my boyfriend will refer to these as McJens! I kept it simple, grilled the chicken, and added my spin with spices and honey. And while these would go awesome with a side of sweet potato fries, I usually whip up a good side salad to keep it fresh.

This sandwich would also go great with provolone, grilled onion, peppers, or even a bacon strip if you are less concerned with fat content. Let your favorite cravings mix and match

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 2 chicken breasts

  2. Season your chicken breasts with paprika, garlic salt, pepper, cumin, cayenne.
  3. Grill chicken until it is white throughout. Remove and set aside to rest.
  4. While the grill is still hot, toast your kaiser roll buns until light brown.
