Grilled Chipotle Chicken Sandwich

This sandwich was super yummy! Spicy chicken with cool avocado, lettuce and tomato, perfect for a quick summer dinner (or lunch). You could add bacon on here, too, if you wanted. Because, you know, bacon makes everything better.

2 large chicken breasts, cut in half and pounded to an even thickness
2 tbsp olive oil
1 small lime, juice only
1 clove garlic
2-3 canned chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce
1 tbsp Adobo sauce, from chipotle can
4 hamburger buns
4 slices of cheese
1 avocado, thinly sliced
Tomato, sliced

Place the olive oil, lime juice, garlic, chipotle peppers and adobo sauce in a food processer and puree. Place the marinade and chicken breasts in a ziplock bag and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes or overnight.

When ready to cook, prepare the grill. Remove chicken from marinade and grill until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Top the chicken breasts with cheese in the last minute of cooking.

Assemble the sandwiches with mayo, lettuce, tomato and avocado.

Makes 4 sandwiches.

This all looks like such a thick sandwich, I bet it would be easier to eat inside a warmed pita! Great combo, it looks so delicious!
