I love my grilled chicken to have big bold flavors. Especially when turning it into sandwich meat. For today’s recipe, I’m throwing together a quick apple butter and rosemary injection for chicken breasts. Coated with a rub and then put on the grill.

This will make for an amazing chicken sandwich that can be served hot or cold!

This is the perfect make-ahead recipe. You can cook your chicken over the weekend and store in the fridge for the week. When you’re ready to serve, just slice into thin  1/4″ slices and serve on bread with your favorite toppings.

The chicken itself has a little sweet and savory going on from the apple rosemary injection, with a little kick from the rub that has salt, pepper and paprika. This is my kind of lazy Sunday dinner. Serve everything up on the table, and let the family make their grilled chicken sandwiches on their own.

Look at that crust on this chicken. It’s almost as good as the bark on my pulled pork! I may be a little biased though..
