I always ask Zo after meal what she would give it for a taste level. I think she must get flustered with me because most times I rank it one level lower when I post it. It is not that I do not think it is as good as she says it is. It is just that I try to rank it against other meals we have had. When she took a bite of this sandwich I said, "Now don't you think this is a little better than the other chicken sandwich I made you?" She replied, "Oh yeah, this is so good!" The other chicken sandwich I also thought was great but compared to other recipes I have come up with it was not amazing. So I only gave it a VG because of this although she had said it was a VGR. I really try to be fair in my ranking. I mean we start with good and go up, we never post anything we did not like on Cooking for Zo (there was one seafood sandwich I could not stand but Zo loved that I posted.) What I am trying to say is that I try to be as unbiased as I can when it comes to my recipes. I say all this because this has to be one of the best chicken sandwiches I have ever made. I usually BBQ the chicken on the grill but doing it in the skillet was the best idea I ever had! Or rather the weathers idea. It was windy outside, with the Zephyrs blowing through full speed ahead so I decided I would just make the chicken with the BBQ Sauce a the same time. It was so most and amazing I was really proud of myself! I hope you enjoy!

BBQ Chicken
3/4 lb Boneless breast and boneless thigh chicken meat (in pieces no larger than a stick of gum)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic (minced)
3 tbsp red onion (diced)
1/4 tsp Chile Powder
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/3 cup ketchup
1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp hoisin sauce
2 tsp red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp fresh crack pepper
1/4 tsp liquid smoke (mesquite flavored)

2 hoagie rolls
1 tbsp mustard
2 tsp Mayonnaise
1/3 cup Smoked or hot sauce Cheddar cheese (shredded)

In a medium skillet warm olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic, onion, garlic powder, Chile powder, paprika and cumin and cook for 30 seconds while constantly whisking. Stir in chicken and cook uncovered stirring occasionally for 7-10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and browning.

While chicken is cooking, whisk together the remaining chicken ingredients in a small bowl until even. Once chicken is cooked through whisk in the sauce and cook uncovered stirring often for 5 minutes (or until thickened.) Turn off heat and let cool for 2-3 minutes before serving.

Mix together mustard and mayonnaise in a small bowl. Spread mixture on to both sides of Hoagie roll. Fill with chicken and sprinkle with cheese. Serve while hot and enjoy!
