This is a kid-friendly version of the original with all the taste and very little effort. Chicken, ham, and Swiss cheese are cooked until melty and served on toasted onion buns with a creamy honey mustard sauce. No one could possibly resist this sandwich, especially a Mom with only one pan to clean.

Very nice and simple recipe that people can build on or change if individual tastes differ. I enjoyed the sauce quite a bit and am going to make these without the bun and with a bit of wine in the sauce(heated at a low simmer)and some asparagus on the side for a 'dinner for two' with the hubby. It made a nice filling sandwich that I will make again as well for friends and for lunches. Read More

Nice idea but not the best burger I've had. The honey mustard sauce has way too much sour cream in it. That was all I could taste. Tripled the mustard & honey just for some flavour. The sauce in the AUSSIE CHICKEN recipe is way better. Probably won't make again. Read More

I made a modification to this recipe so I'm mainly rating it based on the sauce because the sauce is genius! So simple but the result is delicious. You can sub light sour cream which gives you a far healthier alternative to mayo and mustard on sandwiches and it also makes a great dipping sauce. You'll have tons left over so you could halve it if you don't want to use it for other purposes. Many reviewers menntioned the chicken was a bit bland so I chose to bread my chicken breasts in Italian style panko bread crumbs and the result was fantastic. You can see my changes in my modified version of this recipe on my profile. I was inspired and now I think this will be a regular on the dinner recipe rotation. Read More

These were so yummy! I only made half of the sauce and still didn't use it all. But the burgers were great! The only thing I could think of to make them better would be to put them on a good sourdough bun. I'll definitely make these again. Read More

I loved this recipe! It was so fast and easy but something really different and tasty. I was shocked my kids ate it all and my husband said it was better than those fancy Panera sandwiches. I sprinkled my chicken with onion salt instead of onion powder and I used dijon mustard instead of yellow. So delicious! Read More

I loved these DH did too. I did cut back a little on the sour cream from other reviews. We had a side salad with the sandwich and I added the honey mustard to the salad. It's so easy and I'm sure I'll be making this again. Read More
