I assembled this sandwich for lunch one busy Saturday afternoon with fare we had readily available at the house. One of the many great things about a sandwich, apart from it being quick, delicious, easy to eat and easily adaptable to individual desires and what happens to be on hand, is that it is a simple matter to modify the amount of ingredients that would be needed for one person or a crowd.


chicken avocado sandwich

ciabatta rolls

1 1/2 pounds cooked chicken breast, sliced

8 ounces smoked cheddar cheese, sliced

2 tomatoes, sliced

1/2 pound lettuce

3 avocados

4 tablespoons salsa

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

2 teaspoons chopped cilantro

1 lime, juiced

hot sauce to taste

Peel the avocados and coarsely mash them in a bowl. Fold in the salsa, mayonnaise, cilantro, lime juice and hot sauce.

To assemble the sandwiches, slice the rolls in half and hollow out some of the bread. Spread each half of the rolls with the avocado mixture. Layer with chicken, cheese, tomatoes and lettuce. Replace the top of the rolls.
