Santa Fe Chicken Sandwich

Carl’s Jr. Copycat Recipe

Makes 4 Sandwiches

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

Marinate the chicken in the teriyaki marinade in a shallow bowl for 30 minutes. Preheat barbecue to medium heat. Prepare the sauce in a small 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 1 Tbsp of sauce on the faces of each bun. On each bottom bun, place a lettuce leaf, then a split-open green chili. Place one breast half on top of the chili. Top with American cheese and remaining bun half.
