Lemon Chicken Sandwich with Basil Mayo

This is a simple, tasty recipe that you can throw together with ingredients that are most likely in your kitchen right now!! I looooove sandwiches, (seriously though, they are the yummiest) and I love how it takes hardly any prep time to make them- not to mention there are so many different possibilities! This lemon-basil combo will be one that you’ll come back to again and again!

Yields 4 Sandwiches
Ingredients:
8 slices ciabatta bread
2 8oz chicken breasts
4 Tbsp olive oil, divided
3 Tbsp lemon juice, divided
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 cup mayo
5-6 large leaves fresh basil
2 medium cloves garlic
Tomato
Red onion
Avocado
Provolone cheese
Baby spinach

Directions:
1. On a shallow dish or plate, mix 3 Tbsp olive oil, 2 Tbsp lemon juice, and Italian seasoning together. Cut chicken breasts in half lengthwise to create four thin, flat pieces of chicken. Place chicken in lemon mixture and let sit for 10 minutes.
2. Grill chicken in frying pan on medium-high heat, cooking thoroughly. Set aside.
3. To prepare basil mayo: place mayo, 1 Tbsp olive oil, 1 Tbsp lemon juice, garlic cloves, and basil in food processor. Mix ingredients in food processor until thoroughly blended.
4. Warm ciabatta bread in toaster. Assemble sandwich with basil mayo, lemon chicken, and toppings of choice! I used provolone cheese, red onion, tomato, avocado, and baby spinach.
ENJOY!!
