What people are saying about these Monterey Chicken Sandwiches

“Made these sandwiches tonight and they were really good! I love how fast the chicken is since I don’t have to marinate it ahead of time. I put the BBQ sauce on the chicken while it was grilling instead of putting it on the bun and served on gluten free rolls. We’ll be making these all summer long!” – Sharon

Oh yummy! This sounds so good!

Come to mama! 🙂 Happy Monday love!

    Gotta love a good sammy right?? Ha!!! Miss you girl!!

Hello, this burger looks amazing. I need to know what the exact name of the buns are that you used in the pics? I would love to try to find those exact buns. I have not found any down here in the south. Also, I have a question about the “Smoky Mountain Chicken”. Do you cook the bacon before you top the chicken in the crockpot. I assume yes just want to make sure? Thank you. These recipes are so mouth-watering. Thank you for sharing…
