Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Mango Salsa on Pretzel Roll

By: Marge Perry & David Bonom

Ingredients

1 medium of mango peeled, pitted and finely diced (about 1 cup)
2 tablespoons of finely chopped red onion
1 tablespoon of chopped fresh cilantro
2 teaspoons of fresh lime juice
1/2 + 1/8 teaspoon of salt divided
4 (5-6 ounce) of boneless skinless chicken breast halves trimmed
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper
4 slices of sharp cheddar cheese
4 pretzel hamburger buns split horizontally

Directions

  1. Combine the mango, onion, cilantro, lime juice and 1/8 teaspoon of the salt in a small bowl; reserve.
  2. Working one at a time, place a chicken breast half between two pieces of plastic wrap. With the heel of your hand or a meat mallet, lightly pound the thicker end of the chicken so that it flattens to an even thickness with the rest of the breast half. Repeat with the remaining chicken. Transfer to a bowl and toss with the oil and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a Circulon nonstick grill pan over medium heat until hot. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until an instant read thermometer inserted into the thickest portion registers 160°F, about 10-12 minutes. During the last 2 minutes of cooking top each breast half with a slice of cheese to allow it to melt. Transfer chicken to the bottom half of each bun, top with salsa and remaining bun half. Serve immediately.
