Southwestern Chicken Sandwiches

You will need:
4 skinned and boned chicken breasts
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup (4-ounces) shredded Mexican four cheese blend
1/3 cup mayonnaise
4 French bread slices, toasted or just use buns like I did!

1. Place chicken between two sheets of heavy duty plastic wrap, adn flattern to 1/2 inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin.

2. Stir together cilantro and next 4 ingredients. Spread on chicken.
3. Grill, covered with lid, over medium high heat 8 to 10 minuteson each side or until chicken is done. (Or cook in the skillet, like I did!)
4. Meanwhile, stir together cheese and mayonnaise. Spread on bread slices. Place bread, cheese mixture side up, on a baking sheet. Broil 6 inches from heat 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese melts.
5. Place chicken on bread. I served with fries and black beans mixed with chopped onions and sour cream (not pictured).
