Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar, divided
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey, divided
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs, trimmed
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking spray
  • 8 (1.5-ounce) pull-apart dinner rolls (such as Sara Lee)

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. 2. Combine sliced onion, 1 tablespoon vinegar, and 1 1/2 teaspoons honey in a small bowl; toss well. Cover and refrigerate onion mixture at least 30 minutes.
  3. 3. Combine remaining 2 tablespoons vinegar, remaining 1 tablespoon honey, 2 tablespoons water, mustard, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Bring to a simmer (do not boil). Simmer 5 minutes; stir in butter. Remove from heat; keep warm.
  4. 4. Sprinkle chicken with remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper and salt. Place on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from grill; cool slightly. Shred chicken into bite-sized pieces. Add chicken to saucepan with mustard mixture, and toss gently to coat.
  5. 5. Cut rolls in half crosswise. Place rolls, cut sides down, on grill; grill 1 minute or until toasted. Spoon about 1/3 cup chicken mixture over bottom half of each roll. Top each roll with about 1 teaspoon drained onion slices and top half of roll. Serve immediately.
