Happy Cinco de Mayo! Our collaboration with Wonder Bread and D’Italiano continues with this celebration of Mexican spices on a delicious grilled chicken sandwich.

It’s finally a bright sunny day in our neck of the woods and this delicious sandwich is just the thing to start the grilling season off right. The bright fresh salsa adds summery flavour and great colour to this dish as well.

NOTE:

I like to debone my own chicken breasts so that I can roast the bones and skins for stock later. I freeze them until I have enough to cover a baking sheet then use the instructions in my post on making Chicken Stock here.
