BBQ CHICKEN SANDWICH
Time: 8 Minute
Yield: Serves 4 with 4 Full Sandwiches (2 Halves each)
(8 Item Recipe)
8 Chicken Breast Tenderloins
1/4 Organic Onion, sliced in rings
2 Pieces Organic Romaine lettuce, cut in halves
1 Organic Roma Tomato
1/2 Organic Avocado, sliced in strips
2 Tablespoons Organic BBQ Sauce (your favorite), low sugar
Freshly Ground Pepper
8 Slices Sprouted Grain Bread
In a pan on medium heat add chicken sprinkling with pepper. On medium heat I put the lid on to steam the chicken while also getting some nice color to it. Cook both sides approximately 2-3 minutes per side until juices run clear and both sides are golden. Be sure not to overcook or under cook. If you are using frozen tenderloins they may take the full time, while fresh will be much quicker and may need less time. You want a nice golden sear on the chicken. Remove from pan and let cool. While the chicken is cooling get all your other ingredients together and cut them up. When finished slicing break them into four servings. You can warm or toast the bread, then prepare to stack it with the goodies. On one side of the bread apply the avocado with the back of a spoon you can press it into the bread so it sticks to it. Then add the lettuce, and tomato slices, pressing it into the stack. Last add the chicken and drizzle 1/4 of the bbq sauce to the chicken and put the onions on top of the chicken. Take your avocado side and meet it to your chicken side, pressing top down a little so it sticks together. You can slice it in half and you are done and it is ready to feast on.
These are incredible sandwiches and can be made for so little. They are very filling, nutritious and super delicious. If you are cooking for 1, 2 or 3 just reduce the portion to fit your needs. These sandwiches come out at under $6 for a family of four. They are not only healthy and delicious but super quick too. We pick up the frozen chicken breast tenderloins (boneless and skinless) from Trader Joe’s the whole 5lb bag runs $9 and you are only going to use 2 per sandwich or 8 total for the recipe.
This sandwich is super well rounded you have the healthy fats coming from the avocado and instead of other fatty condiments you wont need them using the avocado you provide a creamy texture much like mayonnaise without it. The chicken brings you the protein along with the sprouted grain bread, and the produce portion bringing you some nice nutrients and fiber. This sandwich brings a nice well rounded nutritious balance.
