This teriyaki chicken sandwich is a tantalizing meal.  Slices of chicken breasts are tossed in teriyaki sauce and paired with provolone cheese, tomato, and lettuce.  The homemade sweet onion sauce takes this sandwich to the next level.  It is sweet, tangy, and is the perfect condiment.  These teriyaki chicken sub sandwiches are great for lunch or dinner.
