California Chicken Sandwich with Basil Mayo

Easy. Easy. Easy. That sums up this sandwich. If you want something quick, but with a flavor kick, try this. I add basil paste to the mayonnaise and then simply add chicken, avocado, tomato and a touch of garlic salt.

Built that on some good bread, and you’re done. This keeps well so it’s a good choice to take on a picnic or to the office for lunch.

California Chicken Sandwich

This easy sandwich gets a big punch of flavor from basil mayonnaise. This sandwich is so easy, delicious and has lots of healthy fat.

Serves 2

Slice of soft Italian bread or French bread

¼ cup mayonnaise

1 1/4 teaspoons basil paste (these are the refrigerated tubes of herbs you see in the store, usually nears herbs or produce)

1 avocado

1 ripe, beefsteak tomato

Dash of garlic salt

1 large rotisserie chicken breast

Mix together mayonnaise and basil paste and set aside. Slice your bread open and if the bread is thick, slightly pick out some of the bread at the bottom or top so you can layer avocado slices in there.

Then spread mayonnaise mixture inside the bread.

Slice avocado, tomato and chicken. Sprinkle garlic salt on the tomatoes. Then layer all three ingredients in the sandwich. Close the bread, cut it in half and share.
