Description

Lately, I am finding myself with less and less time to prepare meals, but flavorful food is still an option with these Chipotle Lime Chicken Sandwiches.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1-½ pound Chicken, Cut Into Bite Size Pieces
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Pepper
  • ½ cups Lime Juice
  • ¼ cups Orange Juice
  • ¼ cups Brown Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Granulated Garlic
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Chipotle
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 whole Medium Onion, Thinly Sliced
  • ½ cups Mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • ½ teaspoons Chili Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Sea Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Cilantro, Finely Chopped
  • 6 whole Hamburger Buns Or Sandwich Rolls

Preparation

Add olive oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add chicken and season with salt and pepper. Stir chicken occasionally until chicken just starts to brown.

While chicken is cooking mix lime juice, orange juice, brown sugar, garlic, and chipotle together. When chicken starts to brown stir in lime mixture and lower heat to medium. Stir chicken and continue to cook until liquid is reduced and chicken is completely coated.

In a separate small skillet melt butter and add onions, cooking over medium-high heat until caramelized.

Stir together mayo, cumin, chili powder, sea salt and cilantro and set aside.

Lightly toast rolls and spread about a teaspoon of mayo mixture on each. Layer on chicken and a few sauteed onions and cover with top side of roll.
Enjoy!

I like this recipe a lot. Sometimes I use guacamole in place of the dressing, and it’s very good that way as well.

Made this tonight to have for the rest of the week for lunch. I put it in tortillas instead of buns; very good flavor!
