The creamy spread and yummy sliced avocado just bring this sandwich together. Originally in Taste of Home posted by Debbie Speckmeyer, but I've changed it just a bit. Marinating time is not included in the prep and cooking time.

Ingredients

1/2 c
canola oil
1/4 c
lime juice
3 1/2 tsp
cumin, ground
8
chicken breast halves, skinless and boneless
1 c
cream cheese spread
1/3 c
fresh cilantro, minced
1/4 c
red onion, finely chopped
1/8 tsp
salt
1/8 tsp
black pepper
8
hamburger buns, split (your choice)
1 medium
ripe avocado, peeled and thinly sliced
2 medium
tomatoes, thinly sliced

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the oil, lime juice and cumin. Add the chicken; seal the bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
2
In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, cilantro, onion, salt, and pepper; chill until serving.
3
Drain and discard the marinade. Grill the chicken, covered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170°. If grilling is not an option, you can broil these 4 inches from the broiler until they reach 170°.
4
Spread the cream cheese mixture onto the buns. Layer with avocado, tomatoes, and chicken; replace the bun tops. Enjoy!
