Low Fat Chipotle Chicken Melt


  • 1 (7 ounce) can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 3 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons water
  • 4 (3 ounce) submarine or hoagie rolls, split lengthwise
  • 4 (4 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 (1/2 ounce) slices Havarti or Monterey jack cheese
  • 2 cups packaged coleslaw mix or shredded cabbage


  1. Remove 1 chile from can; reserve remaining chiles and sauce for another use. Remove and discard chile stem and seeds; finely chop chile. Combine chile, mayonnaise and water in a small bowl. Spread about 1 tablespoon chile mixture evenly over top half of rolls.
  2. Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to 1/2-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Sprinkle each evenly with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add chicken; sauté 3 minutes per side or until done. Remove chicken from pan; top each with a slice of cheese. Arrange coleslaw mix over bottom half of rolls; top with chicken and remaining half.
  4. Serve immediately.
