This prize-winning grilled chicken sandwich will have your taste buds singing. The tangy Asian-style marinade, with its hints of orange and ginger, make for a flavourful, smoky chicken breast in this light alternative to a burger. Tina was the Grand-prize winner of our 2005 Canada Day Chicken Challenge contest.
