I found such a tasty Chicken Sandwich recipe in the Cooking Light Magazine. This is a recipe keeper. The only adjustments I made, I used whole wheat kaiser rolls and 3 more TB’s of hot sauce, I could not taste the heat with the 3 TB that was requested.


  • Mayo:
  • 1/4¬† cup¬† reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 2¬† tablespoons¬† chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1¬† teaspoon¬† fresh lime juice
  • 1¬† garlic clove, minced
  • Chicken:
  • 1/4¬† cup¬† egg substitute
  • 3¬† tablespoons¬† hot sauce (such as Tabasco)
  • 1¬† teaspoon¬† dried oregano
  • 1/2¬† teaspoon¬† salt
  • 2¬† (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 4 1/2¬† ounces¬† baked tortilla chips (about 6 cups)
  • 2¬† tablespoons¬† olive oil
  • Remaining ingredients:
  • 4¬† (2-ounce) Kaiser rolls, split
  • 12¬† (1/8-inch-thick) red onion slices
  • 4¬† lettuce leaves



1. To prepare mayo, combine the first 4 ingredients.

2. To prepare chicken, combine egg substitute, hot sauce, oregano, and salt in a large zip-top plastic bag. Cut chicken breast halves in half horizontally to form 4 cutlets. Add chicken to bag; seal. Marinate in refrigerator 2 hours or up to 8 hours, turning bag occasionally.

3. Place tortilla chips in a food processor; process 1 minute or until ground. Place ground chips in a shallow dish.

4. Working with one cutlet at a time, remove chicken from marinade, allowing excess to drip off. Coat chicken completely in chips. Set aside. Repeat procedure with remaining chicken and chips.

5. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil to pan, swirling to coat. Add chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned and done. Spread mayo evenly over cut sides of rolls. Layer bottom half of each roll with 3 onion slices, 1 lettuce leaf, and 1 chicken cutlet; top with top halves of rolls.
