I’ll have to admit it, I am not a fan of lunch. I just am not your turkey sandwich type of girl so I always find myself struggling to know what to make, something yummy that doesn’t require a whole lot of effort. This recipe combines some of my favorite flavors: cilantro, lime and avocado…and since I have cilantro in my herb garden now, it’s become a weekly staple in the englexas household!
Ingredients (makes 4 sandwiches)
1/2 lime, juiced
1 Tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, canola, or corn oil
1 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. pepper
2 boneless skinless chicken breast
Toppings: lettuce, tomato, red onion, and sliced avocado
small loaf of crusty bread
Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl. Coat chicken in dressing and set aside for 10 minutes.
Pan fry chicken over medium high heat in a large nonstick skillet uncovered 6 minutes per side. When you turn over the chicken add a little more of the marinade to it.
Brush the bread on either side and grill for 5 mins on each side, or toast bread.Shred the chicken breasts and pile onto the bread. Top with lettuce, tomato, red onion and sliced avocado.
