Chipotle Hawaiian Chicken Sandwich

I have a confession to make… I am a Pinterest addict! I have never  found a website that I couldn’t easily click away from, until now. I am constantly inspired by many wonderful ideas that I find on there. This sandwich is a product of my Pinterest addiction. Within about an hour of pinning the “Spicy Hawaiian Burger” I had over 20 repins. So, I figured should get in the kitchen and make my version of it. I did alter the recipe somewhat, to the ingredients I had on hand, and it turned out fabulous!  Have a marvelous Monday my friends!

My quote for the day: “For every 60 seconds you spend angry, results in 1 minute of happiness you will never get back” unknown
