Tools for making a Spicy Chicken Sandwich:
Wood cutting board – wood won’t dull your knives like plastic and if treated properly, has natural antimicrobial properties.
Good knife – Global is my favorite! They are worth the price, I promise. I am kind of obsessed with them and store them tucked away so no one else can use them. Including hubby. Hands off my good stuff!
- 4 small chicken breasts or two large chicken breasts cut in half
- 1/2 cup Italian dressing
- 4 slices pepper jack cheese
- 1 avocado , pitted and sliced
- 8 slices bacon , cooked and cut in half
- 4 leaves iceberg lettuce
- 4 slices tomato
- 4 sandwich rolls
- 1/4 cup chipotle aioli
Tenderize and and pierce chicken breasts with a fork multiple times. Place chicken in an airtight baggie with Italian dressing. Marinate for 30 minutes. Allow to sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes.
Heat the grill to medium-high heat, a nice hot grill will seal in the juices of the chicken. Spray or oil the grates to reduce sticking. Cook chicken on each side for 7-8 minutes. Close the lid in between turning to ensure even cooking. To check if chicken is done you can prick it with a fork to see clear juices run or make a small incision to look for any remaining pink. You can also cook on the stove top or oven.
Spread chipotle aioli sauce on one side of the sandwich roll. On each roll place a leaf of lettuce, slice of tomato, chicken, 2 slices of bacon, 1 slice of pepper jack cheese, three slices of avocado.
