Grilled Cajun Chicken Sandwich

Ingredients
4
skinless, boneless medium chicken breast halves (about 12 ounces total)
 
Olive oil or cooking oil
1/2
teaspoon Cajun seasoning
4
ounces Monterey Jack cheese with peppers
2
tablespoons Thousand Island salad dressing
 
bottled hot pepper sauce
 
Roasted or fresh red sweet pepper strips
 
Lettuce leaves
4
Kaiser or whole wheat buns, split and toasted

Directions

  1. Rinse chicken; pat dry. Place each breast, boned side up, between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Working from center to edges, pound lightly with the flat side of a mallet until chicken is just less than 1/2 inch thick.
  2. Brush with oil; sprinkle with Cajun seasoning. Grill or broil as directed.
  3. Spread buns with Thousand Island salad dressing mixed with a few dashes bottled hot pepper sauce. Top with roasted or fresh red sweet pepper strips, lettuce, and bun tops. Makes 4 servings.
  4. To cook by direct grill method:
  5. Arrange chicken on a grill rack. Grill, uncovered, directly over medium coals for 12 to 15 minutes or until no pink remains, turning once. Add cheese the last 2 minutes of grilling.
