Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This sandwich is downright scrumptious! The combo of grilled chicken, lime and taco seasoning is terrific. It will definitely be a regular on our summer menu!


boneless skinless chicken breasts
olive oil
taco seasoning
2/3 c
light mayo
2-3 Tbsp
cilantro, chopped (more or less to taste)
1 clove
garlic, minced
limes, juiced (more or less to taste)
salt and pepper, to taste
sliced red onion
lettuce leaves
sliced avocado
sliced tomato
8 slice
rustic bread

Directions Step-By-Step

For Mayo: In a small bowl combine mayo, cilantro, garlic and 1/2 of the lime juice (more or less to taste) and salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate while you prepare the rest of the meal.
For chicken: Butterfly chicken breast by slicing throught the middle horizontally to cut almost in half. Open out flat. Brush lightly with oil, sprinkle with a pinch of taco seasoning on each side and salt and pepper to taste.
For outdoor grilling: Grill over medium hot coals for about 3 minutes per side or until chicken is opaque with no trace of pink.
For indoor grilling: Preheat broiler, broil 3 minutes per side or until opaque or preheat a ridged grill pan to medium heat and cook 3 minutes per side until opaque.
Just before the chicken is done squirt with remaining lime juice.
Lightly toast bread on the grill about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Assemble your sandwiches topped with avocado, lettuce, onion, tomato and of course the cilantro lime mayo. Enjoy!

Just finished dinner of this delicious chicken sandwich with chips and fresh fruit salad. I could have eaten the mayo from the spoon; it was so good. I refrained and put it on the sandwich. My husband loved it. I never eat raw onion on chicken but was determined to fix it just like the recipe said, and it was good. I only had Kaiser Rolls, but I toasted them and they worked perfectly. Thank you for a great dinner.
