Grilled Spiced Chicken Sandwich

Grilled Spiced Chicken Sandwich. Happy Friday, everyone! Now if you have my cookbook “The Seasoned Life,” you have probably made one of my favorite recipes called “Grilled Spiced Chicken.” I take chicken breast and coat them in a dry rub mixture before grilling them indoors or outdoors. The chicken gets all caramelized on the grill and is just so juicy and flavorful. Here I slice it up for a sourdough sandwich with a sweet and peppery arugula salad for crunch and flavor. You can also pair it with a little mayo and your favorite cheese. This sandwich is going to be your next backyard hit. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Enjoy!

Grilled Spiced Chicken Sandwich

Four boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
Two tablespoons olive oil
Two tablespoons paprika
One teaspoon cinnamon
Kosher salt, to taste.
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste.
Eight slices lightly toasted sourdough bread (Or bread of your choosing.)
Sliced cheese, for serving. (I used fontina)
Mayonnaise, for serving.
Arugula salad, for serving. (recipe below)

Preheat grill at medium-high heat.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine seasonings and thoroughly mix. Coat chicken breast one at a time into the spice mixture and set aside onto a plate.

Grill the chicken until cooked through and juices run clear — about 4-6 minutes per side.

Slice chicken breast diagonally and assemble sandwiches to your liking. Enjoy!

 

Arugula Salad:

2 cups packed arugula
One tablespoon balsamic vinegar
One tablespoon dark brown sugar
One tablespoon olive oil

In a small bowl, add vinegar, sugar, and oil and whisk together.

Add in arugula and toss to coat.

Serve immediately.
