Jalapeno’s! Jalapeno Chicken Sandwich

23 Aug

You might think that your diet needs to be bland, filled with stuff like, you know, fiber twigs. Well it doesn’t have to be that way.

You only get so much food to work with, so make every meal count by adding a bit of spice or easy twists to make it memorable.

I’m not sure how it took me until my mid-thirties to discover jalapenos but I’ve been putting them on just about everything, including:

In fact, I thought I’d share a recipe I adapted from Men’s Health magazine, a jalapeno chicken sandwich:


  • 4oz boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 4 Tablespoons Newman’s Own Teriyaki Marinade (it was the only one I could find that didn’t have lots of artificial-ish ingredients)
  • 1 slice Swiss cheese
  • jalapenos (I used the generic ones in a jar)
  • 1 pineapple ring
  • 1 Flatout Artisan Foldit Flatbread (found at Hy-Vee on Edgewood)


  1. Marinate the meat for a couple of hours in the fridge.
  2. Fire up your grill, and grill the chicken normally.
  3. When the chicken is almost done, grill the pineapple ring right on the grill for a minute or two.
  4. Put jalapenos on your chicken breast while it’s still on the grill, and put the cheese on top. Let it melt.
  5. Toast the flatbread on the grill for a minute or so until its crispy.
  6. Stack everything together on the flatbread and enjoy!

Nutrition Information (estimated):

NOTE that I assume that you wind up eating only half the marinade. You could skip the marinade altogether, or use less, if you wanted to cut out some carbs.


Try it and let me know if you like it!
