Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Peanut Sauce & Cucumber

This relish? It’s fantastic. Simple, light, flavorful. Add it to the top of a grilled chicken sandwich and you have a match made in heaven. I love the combination of chicken, peanut sauce, and cucumbers. Seems an unlikely pairing -the cucumber kind of throws it off, but its good. I promise. This is another great summertime meal. Marinate the chicken before you leave for work. Come home and chop some veg and you are almost done. Only thing left to do is grill the chicken. Easy meals like this leave lots of time in the evening to indulge in Orange is the New Black! Guilty pleasure, but I can’t help it.
