Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki Sandwiches

I love Subway Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki subs. Love them.
I wanted to find a way to make them at my house, but I never could quite figure out the recipe by tasting it - and believe me, I tried a million times.
So, I found the recipe for the sauce online.
All I did was prepare the sauce that I found here. And boy, was I nervous. I didn't want it to be gross. I then cut boneless, skinless chicken breasts into small strips. They were no more than an inch wide and two inches long. I put them in a bag, poured in HALF of the sauce, poured some teriyaki sauce over it and marinated the whole day.

I had originally intended on getting Whole Wheat hoagie rolls, but I found a coupon for these new "sandwich thins" and so I decided to use them. They are really good - like a flat bread sandwich.
I toasted them in the oven with some provolone cheese.

Added some lettuce,mayo and extra sauce and was done!

Actually, I didn't put lettuce on mine. But I did have SunChips!

Homemade Popsicles

Homemade Popsicles are so easy and you really don't even need to buy those Popsicle molds that are on the market today. All you really need is what I have below.
You Will Need
Ice Cube Tray
Drink of your choice

Start by preparing the drink mix as usual. This is Pink Lemonade.

Pour the drink mix into the ice cube tray.

Get them all full to the top.

Cover with foil.

This picture isn't very clear because the lighting was bad, but what you need to do next is stick the toothpicks in each cube holder. You can make sure of where you are sticking it by peeling up the foil and looking to see where the partitions are in the tray.
You will then stick the tray in the freezer and wait.
And wait.
And wait.
My freezer takes about 3 hours to fully freeze the pops.
When you take the tray out, carefully remove the foil so none sticks to the Popsicle.
Crack the tray as if you were just removing ice cubes and carefully dislodge the Popsicle.
Here is your finished product. Yes, they are small, but they are the perfect size for small children and they are sugar free and preservative free so you can have as many as you like!

You can use any kind of liquid you want in these Popsicles. Orange juice, grape juice, any drink mix - the possibilities are endless.
Also, you could skip the toothpicks and just make, for instance raspberry lemonade ice cubes and drop them in your Sprite [or whatever you drink] for extra flavoring!
