This is another recipe I can't stop thinking about. This chicken sandwich was SO good. I loved everything about this sandwich, especially the pretzel bun! I think I would eat just about anything on a pretzel bun. I found these larger pretzel buns at Earth Fare. That is the only place that I have found them. If you know of other places, let me know!
The chicken is marinated in a mixture of dijon mustard, honey and Cajun/Creole seasoning. I used some of the seasoning I picked up in New Orleans. It was delicious! We ate this for lunch and it was better than any chicken sandwich I've had in a restaurant. I can't wait to make this again!
Creole Honey Mustard Chicken Sandwich
- 2 Tbsp Cajun seasoning
- 1/2 cup dijon mustard
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 4-6 chicken breasts
- 4-6 provolone cheese slices
- 4-6 pretzel buns
Whisk together seasoning, dijon mustard, honey and lemon juice. Pour over chicken and marinate for several hours, up to overnight.
Preheat oven to 400.
Heat a tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat in an oven safe skillet. Cook chicken 3 minutes on each side. Place skillet in oven and bake an additional 10 minutes.
Top chicken with cheese and return to oven to melt.
Serve chicken on pretzel bun with lettuce, tomato and honey mustard dressing.
