Chicken sandwiches are my thing and I am always looking for new ways to dress up a sandwich.  Hidden under the provolone cheese and grilled chicken are jalapeños.  Such a great surprise and taste.

First and most important is starting with fresh everything.  Pick the best breast of chicken you can find since this is the center of attention which makes up this great sandwich.


4 to 6 chicken breasts
Italian dressing to marinade the chicken.  ( You can find my homemade Italian dressing on the blog).
6 slices provolone cheese
3 jalapeno peppers
lettuce or spinach
red onion
pickles (optional)
pretzel hamburger buns or buns of your choice

Marinate chicken breasts overnight or half a day at least.  Place on grill until cooked through. Top chicken breasts with provolone cheese and cover to melt cheese over chicken.

Split jalapeños and clean out the seeds.  Place on grill until soft but still a touch of crispness is left.  Remove from grill and slice into rings.

Split your bun in half.  Spread with butter on each side and place on grill to crisp.

To plate place bottom of the bun on plate.  Top with jalapeño rings, chicken breast with melted cheese, tomato, red onion, pickles and lettuce.  ENJOY!

If you are grilling chicken make plenty to make these sandwiches the next day.  Remember cook once eat twice.

  1. I love chicken sandwiches! I’m not a huge fan of jalapeños ( just because I’m a baby when it comes to spicy foods) , but I’m sure the hidden taste would make this sandwich amazing!

    1. The spiciness is totally up to you. Slice the jalapeño into rings and put one one of not very much heat or add more for those who love the spicy.

  2. That looks amazing! I’m not as into spicy food as my husband but tonight is date night and I want to surprise him with something delicious. I think this is exactly what I’m looking for.

  3. This sounds so yummy! I love chicken sandwiches as well and I’ve never tried it with grilled jalapeños. So definitely on the menu the next time I’m craving a chicken sandwich.

  4. I couldn’t agree with you more – I love grilled chicken too and could eat it everyday. But, my family really gets tired of the same old same old – I will have to try your reicpe out to let everyone know it’s new!!

  5. Oh wow! That really is a delicious chicken sandwich! I will add this to my menu plan for next week. I might also make this for my husband to take to work. I am sure the jalapenos will be a pleasant surprise. 🙂
