Ingredients

Relish

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

1 medium sweet onion, halved lengthwise, thinly sliced

1 teaspoon sugar

1 medium (1 cup ) red bell pepper, finely chopped

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1/4 teaspoon salt

Sandwich

8 3- to 4-ounce boneless skinless chicken breasts

2 teaspoon grill seasoning for chicken

8 (3/4-ounce) slices hot pepper cheese

3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

8 Kaiser rolls, split

8 lettuce leaves

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 10-inch skillet over medium heat; add onion and sugar. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, 5-6 minutes or until onion begins to brown. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 10-15 minutes or until onions are deep golden brown and tender. Remove from heat; stir in all remaining relish ingredients. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Heat gas grill on medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.

  3. STEP 3

    Place each chicken breast between layers of plastic food wrap. Pound gently with meat mallet or rolling pin, starting in center and working outward, to about 1/4-inch thickness. Sprinkle with grill seasoning.

  4. STEP 4

    Place chicken breasts onto grill. Grill, turning once, 8-10 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°F and juices run clear when pierced with a fork. Top each with cheese slice; continue grilling 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted.

  5. STEP 5

    Spread softened butter onto cut-sides of rolls. Place onto grill, buttered-side down. Grill 1-2 minutes or until rolls are toasted. Place 1 lettuce leaf and 1 chicken breast onto each bottom half of Kaiser rolls; top each with about 2 tablespoons relish.

Tip #1

- Prepare relish up to 2 days ahead. Microwave 5-10 seconds to heat slightly prior to assembling sandwiches.

Tip #2

- To add color variety, prepare relish with a mixture of yellow, orange and red bell peppers.

Tip #3

- The grill seasoning for chicken includes garlic, salt, onion, pepper and parsley.
