Marinated Chicken Sandwiches!

My time as a mom is precious. Between jobs, kids sports, household duties and any personal time, cooking elaborate meals just isn’t in the cards anymore. I need meals that are satisfying, quick to prep and make, but still flavorful. So I came up with this super simple secret ingredient chicken sandwich!

My secret ingredient is using a lemon carbonated beverage to marinate the chicken. It makes the chicken tender, juicy and adds just a touch of sweetness that is complimented by the lemon pepper seasoning.

To make them you will need…

  • Thin chicken breast cutlets
  • Lemon carbonated beverage
  • Lemon pepper seasoning
  • Buns
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Pickles, etc

In a glass dish add the chicken and pour the lemon drink over, just enough to completely cover the chicken. Marinate for two hours.

When ready to cook, heat up a tbsp of olive oil until hot in a frying pan. When the oil is HOT, place the chicken into the pan, and don’t touch for one whole minute (add another minute for thicker chicken), until the chicken has a nice golden crust.

Flip and repeat.

Serve on warm, toasted buns with your favorite toppings.

These are such a hit in our family that my kids inhale them, and I love them cause they make dinner a breeze!
