This is yet another simple recipe. Something to remind everyone that things do not have to be complicated in the kitchen to get a delicious dinner on the table. I said last week that I was in a bit of a rut and well, it continues, but I have decided to just go with it. I mean, every recipe can't be life changing, right? :) You can make this sandwich with whatever seasoning you like... whatever cheese you like... heck, you don't even have to grill the avocado - just whatever you do.. have fun with it!!
Grilled Chicken and Avocado Sandwich
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
- Serves 2 -
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin and cut in half lengthwise
Ms. Dash (or any seasoning of your choice)
1 avocado, cut in half lengthwise and pit removed
salt and pepper
sliced cheese (I used colby jack)
cucumber slices (optional)
steak rolls or hoagie buns
Rub olive oil on both sides of the chicken. Season liberally with Ms. Dash (or other seasonings). Cover and let sit in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Place the chicken directly over the fire and grill 5-8 minutes or until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Remove and allow to rest. While chicken is resting, drizzle avocado with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place face down on the grill and grill 1-2 minutes. Carefully remove and thinly slice. Toast the buns on the grill at this time too if you desire.
To build the sandwich - I slathered a tiny bit of mayo on the bottom bun, then topped with lettuce, cucumber slices, the chicken, cheese and finally the sliced avocado. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
