This grilled chicken sandwich is downright scrumptious! The combo of grilled chicken, lime, and taco seasoning is terrific. We love the cilantro lime mayo. It has a fresh and tangy flavor. Easy to make, this will definitely be on your summer menu. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Grilled Chicken Sandwiches With Cilantro Lime Mayo

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Just before the chicken is done squirt with remaining lime juice.
  5. Lightly toast bread on the grill for about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  6. Assemble your sandwiches topped with avocado, lettuce, onion, tomato, and, of course, the cilantro lime mayo. Enjoy!
