Mexican Flavored Chicken Sandwiches

All I can say is YUM! ;-)


  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil plus 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Ad
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp. lime zest
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp. hot sauce
  • Two skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut in to thin strips*
  • Pepper jack cheese, shredded, amount to taste
  • 1 large avocado
  • 1/4 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 plum tomato, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 small jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Salt to taste
  • 4 slices sourdough bread, lightly toasted
  • Butter lettuce leaves

*it's easier to slice thinly if you freeze for about 20 minutes first.


Combine 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, cilantro, green onions, lime zest, lime juice and hot sauce in a shallow dish. Add the chicken and marinade for about 30 minutes, turning once.

Heat the remaining olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook the chicken until almost cooked through. Spread chicken out in an even layer, top evenly with cheese and continue to cook until cheese is just melted.


Meanwhile, mash together the avocados, red onion, tomato, jalapeno and lemon juice in a medium bowl and season with salt.

Evenly spread guacamole on two of the toasted bread slices and top each with lettuce and the chicken and cheese. Top with the other two toasted bread slices and serve.
