About the Recipe

You can also use an air fryer to cook the chicken. Make sure internal temperature is at 165 degrees. Add a slice of fat free cheese for extra flavor and protein


For the Grilled Chicken:

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Sandwich:

  • 4 whole grain or High Fiber buns

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 cup fresh spinach or arugula leaves

  • 4 tablespoons Greek yogurt


1. Marinate and Grill the Chicken:

  • In a small bowl, mix olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper to create a marinade.

  • Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag and let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

  • Preheat the grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill the chicken breasts for 6-8 minutes per side or until fully cooked. Allow them to rest for a few minutes before slicing.

2. Assemble the Sandwich:

  • Toast the buns lightly on the grill or in a toaster.

  • Spread Greek yogurt on the bottom half of each bun.

  • Place a handful of fresh spinach or arugula on the bun.

  • Add the grilled chicken slices on top of the greens.

3. Add Toppings:

  • Layer halved cherry tomatoes, and thinly sliced red onion on the chicken.

  • Season with a pinch of salt and pepper to taste.

4. Complete the Sandwich:

  • Top with the other half of the bun, and press the sandwich together gently.

5. Serve and Enjoy:

  • Serve the high-protein chicken sandwich immediately.

  • Pair it with a side salad or your favorite vegetable sticks for an extra nutritional boost.
