Melty Chipotle Chicken Sandwich

Developed by Jack Achenbach, RDN, LD

Sometimes, I'm in the mood for a sandwich. But I'm not the type for a simple ham and cheese or PB&J despite their, albeit, deliciousness. I want a good, hardy, hot sandwich. One with a toasted, crusty bread holding within it, layers of flavor and texture. Despite being overplayed, I've decided to share my version of the chipotle chicken sandwich featuring a homemade whole wheat loaf (Recipe not included).

For the chicken: In a blender combine the spices, lime juice, vinegar, and oil. Pour over the chicken and marinate for 30 minutes. While grilling, flip every 5 minutes and brush with the left over marinade. 

For the mayo: in a small bowl, combine the ingredients. 

For the guacamole: in a small bowl, mash together the ingredients to a slightly chunky consistency.

Toast the whole wheat bread and spread the chipotle mayo on both slices. Top with a layer of guacamole, sliced chicken breast, shredded cheese, and sliced tomato. Place in the oven until the cheese has melted, the add the butter lettuce as a finishing touch. 


To Serve:

Serve with a dill pickle and bbq chips!


Cooking note:
