Sweet Honey Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time40 mins
Servings: 6 chicken sandwiches


  • 1 1/4 cup Kraft Sweet Honey Barbecue Sauce
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • salt and black pepper
  • non-stick canola oil spray
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 6 poppy seed buns lightly toasted
  • 6 green leaf lettuce leaves
  • 2 large heirloom tomatoes sliced
  • 12 pre-packaged frozen onion rings cooked per manufacturer's instructions
  • 12 slices fully-cooked bacon crispy


  • In a small bowl, whisk together the Kraft Sweet Honey Barbecue Sauce, orange juice, garlic powder and crushed red pepper. Set aside or refrigerate until you are ready to use.
  • Preheat your grill to medium. While your grill is preheating, season your chicken thighs generously with salt and black pepper. Spray each side with a non-stick canola oil spray.
  • Grill your chicken thighs for approximately 9-10 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. With 2-3 minutes left of cooking time, baste on the barbecue sauce you prepared earlier on each side, fully coating the chicken thighs (Make sure you leave at least 1/4 cup of barbecue sauce as you will be adding it to your sandwiches at the end). Once cooked through, place a slice of Swiss cheese onto each chicken thigh and close the grill for about a minute, or until the cheese has melted. Remove the chicken from the grill and set aside to rest for just a minute or two.
  • Assemble your sweet honey barbecue chicken sandwiches by layering the lettuce leaves, tomatoes, chicken thighs, onion rings, bacon and more of your already prepared barbecue sauce.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
