Pico guacamole with artisan grilled chicken sandwich


Because I thought of it myself and it’s such a great sandwich—everyone I’ve shared the recipe with just loves it and they make it over and over again. You can use any type of bread or roll for this sandwich—we like the ciabatta but have used other bread and rolls—whatever I might have handy. You can also pan fry the chicken if you can’t get to a grill.
