Serves: 4 sandwiches
Tender juicy chicken breast soaked in a quick brine and then grilled. Nestled on a whole wheat bun and topped with bacon, mushrooms, cheese, and Kraft Barbecue Sauce, this Barbecue Grilled Chicken Sandwich will get you outside to cook all year long!
  • For the Chicken:
  • 4 (3-4 ounces each) thin chicken cutlets
  • 1 quart of cold water
  • 2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ cup Kraft Barbecue Sauce
  • For the Sandwiches:
  • 4 slices thick cut bacon, cut in half
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • tiny pinch of salt
  • ½ cup low fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 whole wheat burger buns
  • lettuce, tomato, and red onion plus more Kraft Barbecue Sauce to garnish
  1. In a large bowl stir together the cold water, kosher salt, and granulated sugar. Add the chicken breast, cover, and refrigerate for 30 mins.
  2. While the chicken is soaking in the brine, you can heat your grill and prep your other ingredients.
  3. When you are ready to cook, remove the chicken and pat it dry with paper towels. Discard the brine. Sprinkle the chicken breast with the salt and pepper.
  4. You will be cooking the chicken over direct heat; it's totally quick. So when you head outside you will PUT THE BACON ON THE GRILL FIRST. The bacon will need to be positioned between the hot and cold sides of the grill (lay it directly on the grates so that it hovers only halfway over the coals or your gas heat source).
  5. After you have all the bacon pieces situated, place the chicken on the grill directly over the heat. It will only need to cook for about 3-4 minutes per side. Be sure to check for doneness; the internal temperature should read 165°F. Flip the bacon when it starts to shrink up.
  6. While the chicken is still on the grill brush both sides with the barbecue sauce. Remove it to a plate and let it rest. When the bacon is crispy on both sides add it to the plate with the chicken.
  7. You can cook the mushrooms two ways -- if you have a burner on the grill cook them outside! If not just cook them stovetop by heating the 1 teaspoon of oil in a small sauce pan. Add the sliced mushrooms and a pinch of salt. Cook over medium high heat for 3 or 4 minutes.
  8. To assemble the sandwiches, add lettuce, tomato, and onion to each whole wheat bun. Top with a piece of the Barbecue Grilled Chicken, then the mushrooms, and then the shredded cheese. Add two of the half slices of cooked bacon and a little more Kraft Barbecue Sauce
  9. Enjoy!
