  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Prick chicken breasts all over with a fork. Place chicken breasts, 1/4 cup olive oil, white wine vinegar, lemon juice, garlic and herb seasoning, ground black pepper, and chopped fresh dill in a bowl. Stir to coat chicken breasts completely. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove chicken breasts from marinade, discard marinade, and grill chicken for 10 to 15 minutes on each side, or until juices run clear and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a breast reads at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Remove from grill; let stand for 5 minutes. Cut chicken breasts in half.
  4. Melt butter and 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle garlic powder and salt over butter and oil. Add French bread slices to the pan and toast until golden brown on one side, about 3 minutes; remove from pan.
  5. For sandwich assembly, place one slice of French bread with toasted side down onto a serving plate. Spread mayonnaise on bread; top with a slice of tomato, salt and ground black pepper to taste, half a grilled chicken breast, and lettuce. Spread untoasted side of another slice of bread with mayonnaise and place on top to make a sandwich.

I gave 5 stars and have to admit I changed some of the recipe. I hate it when people do this but I only had ciabatta buns! My family weren't excited when I said we were having chicken sandwiches...

Very good. I used thighs instead of breasts. No cheese because cheese on grilled chicken seems too weird. Along with the lettuce and tomato I added pickle and onion, Quick, easy, and economical!

We LOVED this sandwich! I didn't realize I was out of Mrs. Dash seasoning until I had started the marinade so subbed Montreal Chicken Seasoning. Just great! Can't wait to try it w/Mrs Dash! The ...

I made it as close to the recipe as I could. I didn't feel like starting up the grill so I just used my stove top and it came out fantastic! The only substitution that I made was I used rice win...

This recipe is fantastic. We prefer the chicken on pretzel buns, or in salads. I have also made it with white wine in place of the vinegar, and fresh garlic and herbs in place of the Mrs. Dash. ...
