Last weekend we bought a bag of avocados and while I am all for eating half an avocado with a meal, I’ve also wanted to find some new recipes. I found a number that looked intriguing, but many were salads. I’m not anti-salad, I freaking love salad, but I also really love sandwiches and this seemed like the perfect summer dinner.
This idea is a combination of a few sandwiches I came across. I picked what I liked from each and married what I thought would pair well together: bacon, avocado, honey mustard, grilled chicken.
What You’ll Need
- 1 tablespoon stone ground mustard
- 1/2 tablespoon of honey
- 1 tablespoon of lime juice
- splash of red wine vinegar
- dash of salt
- 8 ounces of chicken breast
- Sliced avocado
- Sliced tomato
- Slice of bacon (I used peppered bacon)
- Joseph’s lavish bread or Flatout wraps
Directions: Honey Mustard
1. In a small bowl combine stone ground mustard and honey.
2. Add lime juice a quarter tablespoon at a time. I ended up using about a tablespoon, but it’ll depend on your tastes.
3. Add a splash of red vinegar and a dash of salt.
4. Set aside to cook bacon and chicken.
Directions: Baked Bacon
1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Cut bacon strips in half with kitchen scissors then place on a baking sheet. You can use a standard sheet for cooking or a sheet that has a wire rack set inside. Either would be fine.
3. Bake bacon for 7 to 10 minutes or until desired crispness.
4. Remove bacon from baking sheet and place on a plate with paper toweling to remove any excess grease.
*Let baking sheet cool down before removing grease. The grease will solidify and you can easily wipe it up with a paper towel.
Directions: Grilled Chicken
1. Trim excess fat off and season if desired, I left the chicken plain.
2. Grill chicken until fully cooked, then cut into strips/slices. I grilled it on a George Foreman because it was raining – this took only a few minutes. I would suggest avoiding charring the chicken because that will change the taste.
In the middle of a lavish bread, make a layer of sliced avocado and sliced tomato. Then place grilled chicken breast in the middle of the first layer. Top with honey mustard sauce and roll up.
Depending on the wraps you use, adding lettuce and onion could be really good with this wrap. If you’re going to add onion, consider the taste – a red onion may be more bold than a yellow onion, which is more sweet.
