GRILLED CHICKEN AVOCADO SANDWICH WITH SPICY SUN-DRIED TOMATO MAYO

I can’t believe it’s already been six years since I published my first recipe—the juicy and flavorful lemon chicken breast. However, I recently realized that I don’t have any sandwich recipes on my blog, which seems strange because we make many sandwiches at home. So there was no question in my mind to start with this delicious Grilled Chicken Avocado Sandwich with Spicy Sun-dried Tomato Mayo.

You can use a meat thermometer to ensure you have reached the right temperature. This will help you ensure that the chicken is fully cooked and safe to eat.
