Grilled Pennsylvania Chicken Breast Sandwich

Grilled Pennsylvania Chicken Breast Sandwich

Here's where the "more" comes from at Burgers and More by Emeril. This chicken sandwich is juicy and delicious plus it's a great alternative to a burger.

  • Prep Time: 30 minutes, plus time to make the Chipotle Mayo
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 4 sandwiches

Ingredients

  • Four 6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • Chipotle Mayo
  • 1 avocado, peeled, seeded and sliced
  • 8 strips crisp-cooked bacon
  • 4 Bibb lettuce leaves
  • 4 slices tomato
  • 4 hamburger buns

Directions

  • Preheat the grill to medium-high.

  • Drizzle the chicken breasts with the olive oil and season both sides with the salt and pepper. Transfer the chicken breasts to the grill and cook for 2 minutes. Rotate the chicken breast 90 degrees to make grill cross marks, and cook for another 2 minutes. Then turn the chicken over and repeat, cooking until the chicken is nicely browned and the internal temperature registers 165 degrees F on an instant read thermometer, about 8 minutes. Divide the cheese between the four chicken breasts and cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer.

  • Spread the chipotle mayo on the bottom buns and then lay 1/4 of the sliced avocado on top of each bottom bun. Transfer the chicken breasts to the buns. Place 2 strips of bacon on top of each chicken breast. Spread the cut side of the top buns with the Chipotle Mayo and lay 1 lettuce leaf and 1 slice of tomato on each of the top buns. Place the top buns on top of the chicken.

  • Serve the sandwiches immediately.
