Honey-Chipotle Barbecue Chicken Sandwich

Honey-Chipotle Barbecue Chicken Sandwich

I am always on the lookout for new tasty sandwich ideas. I came across this tasty looking sandwich a while ago and bookmarked it to try later. The combination of honey, chipotle, cumin and melted smoked mozzarella cheese is really amazing. The sandwich was a bit messy but it made a really tasty Sunday lunch. I think the next time I make this I might try adding some corn.

What wonderful flavour combinations Kevin!!! I love chicken burgers. They are so easy to make for one or a crowd.

That looks amazing. I should make chicken burgers more often (an not the frozen kind), I love them and they are so much leaner than ground beef burgers.
