Copycat Rainforest Cafe Blue Mountain Grilled Chicken Sandwich

When I was in college I used to always go to Rainforest Cafe for a good snack after class. I have no idea why, since it was always packed, but unfortunately, that location has since closed. I was so glad to find this copycat recipe, it’s so easy to prepare. I hope you enjoy!
