  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley

  • For the Hot Honey:

  • 2 to 3 Calabrian chilies
  • For the Sandwiches:

  • 1/2 cup Roth Gouda cheese, shredded

To make the Chicken:

  1. Add olive oil, Dijon mustard, honey, lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder, dried parsley, smoked paprika, salt and pepper to a bowl. Whisk together. Pour over chicken and marinate for 15 minutes up to 24 hours.

To make the Hot Honey:

  1. To make the hot honey, add the honey and chiles to a jar and use an immersion blender to puree. Set aside.

To make the Sandwiches:

  1. When ready to cook, preheat the grill to 400 degrees F. Cook on each side for 4 to 5 minutes with the lid closed. During the last minute of cooking, add a generous amount of shredded Goudas and close the lid to melt the cheese.
  2. Serve on a bun with lettuce, tomato, and red onion. Drizzle with hot honey and serve.

*Notes: If using chili paste, start with a teaspoon and taste until you get the desired amount of heat. If using chicken breasts, pound to even thickness.
