Grilled Chicken Sandwiches

Grilled chicken sandwiches by Wendy IngorvaiaNow that it’s summer, it’s time to fire up that outdoor grill and cook up something tasty!  While chicken sandwiches have recently seen a surge in popularity, the ones most people tend to think of are more in-line with Chik Fil-a: deep fried and served with pickles.  But chicken sandwiches can also be delicious!  Here is a recipe for summer chicken sandwiches I found online.  This recipe serves four people, but you can use the same basic ingredients to make it for as many or as few people as you want!  It only takes about 15 minutes to prep, 15 to cook and can be ready in 30 minutes!

Ingredients:

Ripe avocado slices

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon butter

1 large Vidalia onion sliced into rings

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

4 hamburger buns

4 tablespoons mayonnaise

4 slices provolone cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

1) In a small bowl, combine the avocado slices and lemon juice

2) Add water to cover the mixture and set it aside

3) Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate

4) Heat butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat

5) Sauté the onions in the skillet until they’re brown and caramelized, then set them aside

6) Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, then place them on the grill

7) Cook chicken until it’s no longer pink and the juices run clear (about 5 minutes on each side)

8) Place buns on the grill just long enough to toast them, then spread them with mayonnaise to taste

9) Add the chicken, onions, provolone and avocado to each bun
