Carl’S Jr. Santa Fe Chicken


2 whole chicken breasts, skinned, boned, and halved
1 cup teriyaki marinade
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp curry powder
Pinch salt
4 whole-wheat hamburger buns
4 lettuce leaves
One 4- oz can mild green chili peppers, well drained
4 slices American cheese

How to prepare

Marinate the chicken in the teriyaki marinade in a shallow bowl for 30 minutes. Preheat a clean barbecue to med grilling heat. Prepare the sauce in a sm bowl by mixing the mayonnaise with the paprika, cayenne pepper, curry powder, and salt. Grill the chicken for 5 to 8 minutes per side, or until done. Brown the faces of each bun in a hot frying pan. Spread a tbsp of sauce on the faces of each bun, top and bottom. On each bottom bun place a lettuce leaf, then a green chili pepper. You want the pepper to be spread over most of the lettuce. To do this, slice the pepper down the middle and spread it open so that it covers more territory. When sliced open like this, some peppers are big enough for 2 sandwiches. Some are much smaller and enough for only one sandwich. Place one chicken breast half on each of the sandwiches, on top of the chili pepper. Place a slice of American cheese on the chicken. Top it all off with the top bun. Makes 4 sandwiches.
