"The raspberry barbecue sauce makes my grilled chicken sandwiches special," writes Kelly Thornberry of LaPorte, Indiana. "I also use this sauce on meatballs, chicken wings and pork chops."


  • 1 cup chili sauce
  • 3/4 cup raspberry preserves
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1/2 cup olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 24 slices French bread (1/2 inch thick)
  • 12 slices Muenster cheese, halved
  • Shredded lettuce


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the first four ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Set aside 1 cup for serving and remaining sauce for basting.
  2. Flatten chicken breasts to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut in half widthwise; place in a large resealable plastic bag. Add 2 tablespoons oil, salt and pepper. Seal bag and turn to coat. brush remaining oil over both sides of bread.
  3. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Grill chicken, uncovered, over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until no longer pink, basting frequently with raspberry sauce. Remove and keep warm.
  4. Grill bread, uncovered, for 1-2 minutes or until lightly browned on one side. Turn and top each piece of bread with a slice of cheese. Grill 1-2 minutes longer or until bottom of bread is toasted. Place a piece of chicken, lettuce and reserved raspberry sauce on half of bread slices; top with remaining bread.
