Grilled Chicken Sandwich

[FTC Standard Disclaimer]  No compensation was received for this post.

This was a quickie that we cooked the other night. Storms were moving in and I just wanted something quick and easy for dinner so we made grilled chicken sandwiches.

They were nothing fancy, just quick.  If you want something a bit more evolved, check out these other chicken sandwiches we've made.

But here is how I made this chicken sandwich.

I took 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves and butterflied them. Then I seasoned them liberally on both sides with some Pork U Masters Degree rub.

I toasted some buns from the bakery.  I also mixed some Cattleman's Carolina Gold BBQ sauce with a little bit of Head Country for the sauce.

I grilled them on one of my large Big Green Egg kamado grills until they reached an internal temp of 150°f, about 6-7 minutes per side

They smelled so good that I could have just eaten them just like this.

But I glazed them with the BBQ sauce and put them back on just long enough to cook the sauce onto the chicken, maybe a minute to 90 seconds per side.  I really wasn't timing it.

Our son ate one like this.  That's too big for Alexis and I, we split the breast in half for 2 smaller sandwiches.
