How To Make grilled chicken sandwiches with cilantro lime mayo

  • Mayo, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, salt, and pepper combined in a bowl.
    For Mayo: In a small bowl combine mayo, cilantro, garlic, and 1/2 of the lime juice (more or less to taste), salt, and pepper. Cover and refrigerate while you prepare the rest of the meal.
  • Seasoning butterflied chicken.
    For Chicken: Butterfly chicken breast by slicing through 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. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Grilling the chicken.
    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.
  • Squeezing lime juice over the grilled chicken.
    Just before the chicken is done squirt with remaining lime juice.
  • Toasting bread on the grill.
    Lightly toast bread on the grill for about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Assembled Grilled Chicken Sandwich With Cilantro Lime Mayo.
    Assemble your sandwiches topped with avocado, lettuce, onion, tomato, and, of course, the cilantro lime mayo. Enjoy!
