RECIPE

Go Green Chicken Sammies

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • Grated peel of 1 lime plus juice of 2 limes
  • 2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
  • Salt and pepper
  • Four boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 deli slices pepper Jack cheese
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small plum tomato, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 large clove garlic, grated or finely chopped
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 hamburger buns or crusty rolls, split and toasted
  • 1 head Bibb lettuce or green leaf lettuce
  • Tortilla chips, for serving

Preparation

In a shallow dish, combine the EVOO, cilantro, scallions, thyme, lime peel, half of the lime juice, and the hot sauce; season with salt and pepper. Add the chicken and let marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Pre-heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. Grill the chicken until cooked through, 12 minutes. Just before the cooking time is up, top each breast with a slice of pepper jack cheese.

In a medium size bowl, mash together the avocados, red onion, tomato, jalapeños, garlic, lemon juice and remaining lime juice; season with salt.

Top each bun bottom with lettuce, a chicken breast, a mound of guacamole and a bun top. Serve with the tortilla chips.
