Cajun Chicken Sandwich

Hubby and I loved these, my oldest said they didn't have enough spice and my two youngest said it was too spicy.  I personally thought they were just right and really enjoyed the little kick that the rub gave the chicken.  Hubby told me I could make these again so I guess they pass the test.

6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)                            
1 tablespoon olive oil                           
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 tsp onion powder (I added this)                           
6 kaiser rolls, split and toasted
12 slices tomato
6 lettuce leaves
 
Flatten chicken to 1/2-in. thickness.
Brush both sides with oil.
Combine the seasonings; rub over both sides of chicken.
Arrange in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.                               
Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack.
Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 3-5 minutes on each side or until chicken is no longer pink.
Serve on rolls with tomato and lettuce.  

*I baked mine in the oven for 30 minutes.
