A Taste of Summer Chicken Sandwich

This prize-winning grilled chicken sandwich will have your taste buds singing. The tangy Asian-style marinade, with its hints of orange and ginger, make for a flavourful, smoky chicken breast in this light alternative to a burger.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp (5 mL) orange zest, grated
1/4 cup (60 mL) orange juice
3 green onions, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp (5 mL) ginger, freshly grated
1 tsp (5 mL) soy sauce
1/4 tsp (1.25 mL) salt
4 whole wheat Kaiser rolls
roasted red pepper, thinly sliced, for garnish
red onion, thinly sliced, for garnish
Romaine lettuce, for garnish

1. In a bowl, whisk together orange zest and juice, green onions, garlic, ginger, soy sauce and salt.

2. Add chicken breasts; turn to coat.
