  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 10 minutes


8 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast, visible fat trimmed, and pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
Olive oil spray
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 slices center-cut bacon
2 multigrain sandwich thins
1/2 small ripe avocado, cut into 6 slices
2 small handfuls mixed baby greens
Very thin slices red onion, to taste
2 large or 6 small tomato slices
2 Tbsp. yogurt-based blue cheese dressing


  1. Preheat a grill to high.
  2. Mist the chicken breasts on both sides with oil spray. Season with the pepper.
  3. Reduce the grill heat to low, if possible, or select a spot away from direct flame and place the chicken on the grill. Cook the chicken for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until it is no longer pink inside.
  4. In the final minutes of cooking the chicken, add the bacon to the grill. Add the bun halves, cut sides down, to the top rack of the grill (or away from direct flame). Grill the bacon until it’s lightly crisped, about 1 minute per side, and the bun halves until they are lightly toasted, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Chop the bacon slices into very small pieces.
  5. Place the bottom buns on a serving plate. Using a fork, slightly mash three avocado slices into each bun. Press the bacon pieces into the avocado. Divide the greens, onion, tomato, and chicken between the buns. Spread 1 Tbsp dressing on the inside of each bun top, and add it to a sandwich. Enjoy immediately.
