This is a great change from beef! If you like onions and Swiss cheese, you'll LOVE this combination with chicken. Good summer dinner! I serve this with fresh fruit and chips!

  3. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place the chicken breast halves on the grill, and sprinkle with wine, rosemary, and thyme. Cook for about 8 minutes. Turn, and continue cooking 8 minutes, or until juices run clear. Place a slice of cheese on each breast half, and top with onions. Cook until cheese starts to melt. Serve on toasted English muffins.

These were really good. Not out of this world/my favorite meal ever; hence the 4 stars. However, I will definitely make them again. I chose to tenderize the chicken breasts by poking them full of holes. They flattened out some too. I then marinated in the wine, thyme and rosemary for a little over an hour (instead of seasoning over the grill). I topped them with swiss and aged provolone. Don't leave off the onions (make plenty)! The onions are very important to this chicken melt in my opinion. We also put Dijon mustard on the muffins and I can't imagine not having the Dijon flavor too. I think they would be a little bland without it. Served with a salad.
