4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)

A mojito is a rum, lime juice, and mint cocktail that originated in Cuba. This sandwich features those flavors and makes for a great lunch or casual dinner.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare dressing, combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Cover and chill.

Step 2

To prepare sandwich, combine 1 tablespoon mint and next 4 ingredients (through garlic) in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken breast tenders; seal and marinate in refrigerator for 15 minutes, turning occasionally.

Step 3

Prepare grill.

Step 4

Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade. Place chicken and onion on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 4 minutes on each side or until chicken is done and onion is tender. Remove from grill; sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.

Step 5

Grill roll halves, cut side down, until lightly toasted, about 1 minute.

Step 6

Spread about 1 tablespoon dressing over the bottom halves of the rolls. Top each serving with 3 ounces chicken breast tenders, 1 onion slice, 2 tomato slices, and 1 lettuce leaf; cover with top halves of rolls.

Tasty, but watch those tenders, they dry out quickly! The mayo makes it - my husband and son hate tomatoes but I would add lettuce next time or sandwich is too dry unless you slather mayo on both sides of roll. It's very good that way, but not really cooking light if we us that much mayo!

Great flavors and easy to prepare. I did add Goya Adobo into the marinade, therefore you don't need to marinate overnight. 30 minutes in the frig and the flavors are explosive. Awesome recipe!!!!!!

I made these sandwiches for my cooking club tonight. The sauce really made the sandwich. On its own, the chicken didn't have much flavor. I couldn't really taste the marinade. We had them with roasted plantains and cuban black beans and rice.
