OHOW’s Favorite Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich

In need of a quick, easy, and flavorful meal that is perfectly refreshing? Try our recipe for OHOW’s Favorite Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich! This recipe elevates a simple grilled chicken sandwich into a satisfying meal by adding roasted Anaheim chili pepper, fresh avocado, Monterey jack pepper cheese, refreshing cilantro, and thick-cut bacon.

“Fresh flavor and mild heat from Anaheim pepper with the creaminess of the fresh avocado make this a winning sandwich combination that everyone will enjoy!” Chef Mike Wolf said

Start this simple recipe by preparing and seasoning your chicken breast and preheating your grill. Next, roast your Anaheim chili pepper. Brush the pepper with olive oil and place it on the grill. Once the skin starts to char and turn slightly black, remove it from the grill. Place the pepper in a heat-safe bowl, and cover for about 10 minutes. The skin should rinse right off, and the pepper should be soft and ready to cut up. 

Then, grill your chicken until it is no longer pink in the middle, around 7 minutes. Once cooked, place your cheese on your chicken breast to allow it to melt. Toast off slices of sourdough bread and assemble your sandwich with your Anaheim pepper, avocado, cilantro, lettuce, tomato, bacon, and a bit of mayonnaise. Enjoy your grilled chicken club sandwich with a side of chips, fresh fruit, or fresh vegetables and dip!

  • 4 tbsp Heavy mayonnaise  
  • 8 slices Sourdough bread
  • Lettuce, avocado sliced and tomato sliced
  • Kosher salt To taste

Instructions
 

  • Place chicken breast between two pieces of plastic wrap. Pound with a rolling pin until an even thickness.
  • Slice each piece in half, so you have four chicken breast pieces.
  • Season with garlic, cilantro and brush with olive oil.
  • Preheat the grill to medium heat. Cook over medium heat until chicken no longer pink (depending on the thickness about 7 minutes).

Notes

Anaheim chili should be roasted in advance. Brush the pepper with olive oil and place on the grill. Once the pepper skin starts to char and turn slightly black, remove it from the grill and place in a heat-safe bowl. Cover for about 10 minutes. The skin should rinse right off and the pepper should be nicely soft and ready to cut up.
