Spicy Chipotle Chicken BLT Sandwich

I feel like Joey from Friends would have absolutely loved spending this week in my kitchen with all of the sandwich making that has been going on!

Remember how much that guy loved sandwiches? Am I the only one who really misses that show and continues to watch re-runs on the regular?

Anyway, back to those sandwiches we’ve been making this week!

Spicy Chipotle Chicken BLT Recipe

In case you missed my previous two posts featuring the delectable Vegetarian Portobello Caprese Sandwich or the scrumptious Greek Chicken Salad Sandwich, I’m on a sandwich making spree this week!

Grilled Chipotle Chicken BLT Sandwich

Over the past week I’ve become completely obsessed with Roasted Bell Pepper and Chipotle Spread! Everything from putting it in wraps to spreading it on bagels to simply tossing it on a plain tortilla and digging in!

With the overwhelming popularity of my Chipotle Lime Chicken Skewers, I felt like a Chipotle Chicken Sandwich with the delicious chipotle spread would be a perfect match!

Chipotle Chicken BLT Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 2 limes (juiced)
  • 1 tbsp jalapeño liquid
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
  • 1 tsp chipotle powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
  • 3 slices cooked bacon
  • 2 hamburger buns
  • 2 tbsp Roasted Red Bell Pepper and Chipotle Spread
  • 1/2 cup iceberg lettuce
  • 1 small tomato (sliced)
  • 1/4 cup deli sliced jalapeños

Whisk the lime juice, liquid from the jar of  jalapeños, crushed garlic, chipotle powder and cumin together in a small bowl.

Pour the marinade over the chicken breasts.

Turn the grill on to medium and place the chicken on the grill for 10 minutes per side.

The last 3-4 minutes of grill time, add the hamburger buns to the grill to toast.

Remove the chicken and buns from the grill. Spread 1/2 tbsp of the Red Pepper Chipotle Spread on each bun.
