Recipe Swap - Grilled Chicken Sandwich

Want to see what other Burger / Sandwich recipes were made during the swap? Here is the link to the Burger / Sandwich Recipe Swap Roundup.

Two recipe swap posts in one day! The theme for this week's cooking board swap was sandwiches / burgers. I was lucky enough to get this amazing Grilled Chicken Sandwich recipe from my friend Jaida at Sweet Beginnings.

The ingredient list isn't anything unique, but don't be fooled. This recipe has a ton of flavor thanks to the delicious Creamy Red Pepper Sauce. Holy moly, was that stuff good. I slathered some on the sandwich and liked it so much I dipped the sandwich into the leftover sauce as I was eating. You'll be seeing that sauce again for sure.

Grilled Chicken Sandwich
Recipe from Sweet Beginnings

2 chicken breasts
2 bakery rolls, toasted
2 Romaine leaves
6 slices tomato
6 slices bacon, cooked
1 avocado, sliced
2 tablespoons Creamy Red Pepper Sauce (Recipe Below)

Prepare the red pepper sauce and refrigerate while preparing the chicken. Grill chicken and cook bacon, and set aside to drain and cool.

Meanwhile, slice tomatoes and avocado (or prepare guacamole), and toast bread.
Spread 1 tablespoon of Creamy Red Pepper Sauce onto 1 slice of the bread, top with avocado (or guacamole), 3 slices of bacon (halved to make 6 pieces), chicken, tomatoes, and leaf of lettuce. Top with second piece of bread, and repeat process for second sandwich.

Creamy Red Pepper Sauce
4 tablespoons cream cheese
3 tablespoons mayo
3-4 roasted red peppers, drained well
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Mix all ingredients together in food processor until well-blended.
Pin It!


  1. This looks fantastic Sarah!! I like the rolls you used...much better than regular bread!! :)

  2. Jaida - we get the rolls from our supermarket bakery and use them for burgers and sandwiches. They're the perfect blend of crispy and sturdy enough to hold up to a messy sandwich/burger, but light enough so you don't get those bread shards when you try to take a bite.

  3. These look amazing, I'm bookmarking them!

  4. Just made these tonight and this sauce is reason alone to make them over and over again. Great recipe!
