Smokehouse Chicken (unchained recipe contest!)
Very Good 4.2/5
(101 ratings)

This is my absolute favorite dish from Ruby Tuesday so I had to find a way to make it over. Its called the smokehouse chicken and it is a favorite by many! This delicious dish is high in fat and calories if ordered from the restaurant so I came up with a healthier, guilt free version that has become a favorite in my household!

Cookbook creator says: Quick, easy, and a decent substitute to the fast food/gas station breakfast sandwiches which tend to be higher in calories and saturated fat.

Great lunch sandwich. You can marinate the chicken breast the night before in something light to give it a little more flavor since I skipped mayo or any other topping here. Just don't forget to add those calories, etc into your final list for this.
