  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.

Simple, quick and not to mention delicious! I did cut back on the oil for the marinade using about half the amount. I topped the grilled chicken with Swiss cheese, bacon, shredded lettuce, tomato, and mayo. I also opted to broil rolls vs. pan frying bread. All I had to add was a side of Ore-Ida french fries for a quick weeknight meal!

Wonderful sandwich! I only got two sandwiches from this because my chicken pieces were small and I did not cut them in half. I didn't have Mrs Dash or alternative so I used some garlic powder and some Herbs de Provence and made my own garlic/herb blend. Used dried dill weed too. Hamburger buns instead of French Bread and butter instead of olive oil for the toasting bread. This was great with Monteray Jack cheese and bacon bits. This had a nice mild flavor that was tasty. I am definitely making this again! Thanks so much for the yummy grilled chicken sandwich. My taste buds are dancing. YUM.

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 lettuce & tomato are a must, they made the flavors really pop! Thanks for a great sandwich, katiergs!!

We liked them. I bought filleted breasts at the store and marinated them in the sauce for a few hours. The chicken had a very nice flavor. I also bought Texas toast for the bread and it saved me some time. My son said he'd eat this every week.
