A couple of weeks ago, I went to a burger place with a few of my friends. I’m not really fond of beef patties. The only kind I can stomach is shake shack burgers, and that’s only on very rare occasions. I know, blasphemy.
I ended up order their chicken blt sandwich but decided to ask for their spicy mayo sauce and sliced avocados. It was heaven so I thought about recreating it at home! This time, I’m making the chicken spicy with cayenne pepper and leaving the mayo as is. I did write a short note at the end of this post for those of you who want to make a spicy mayo sauce.
Spicy Chicken Avocado BLT Sandwich
- 1 Chicken Fillet
- Cayenne Pepper
- Salt & Pepper (to taste)
- 2 Bacon (sliced to 4 pieces)
- 2 Slices Tomato
- 2 Lettuce Leaves
- 2 Thick Sliced Bread
- ½ Sliced Avocado
- Slice two pieces of bacon into four. Cook in a pan.
- While bacon is cooking, season chicken fillet with cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper to taste. Make sure that all sides are fully coated. Be careful not to overdo the cayenne pepper unless you want it super spicy.
- Drain the bacon on a plate with a paper towel.
- Using the same pan, add a little bit of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the chicken. Cook 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown. Cooking time depends on how thick the cut is.
- While waiting for the chicken to cook, slice half an avocado into four lengthwise pieces. Peel, and set aside. Grab a tomato and slice two pieces. Dab it with a paper towel to remove as much liquid as possible.
- Once the chicken is finished cooking, let it rest for a few minutes.
- Toast your bread on both sides. Now, you’re ready to arrange the sandwich!
- Slather butter and then mayo on one side of both of your toasts. Place lettuce on each. Add the tomato slices on one side, and the avocado on the other. Lay the bacon on the side of the avocado, and the chicken on the tomato side. Put both slices together.
Stick a toothpick in to hold the ingredients, and cut in half. It’s ready to serve!
TIPS: To make spicy mayo, add 2 tablespoon of sriracha sauce to ¼ cup of mayonnaise. Use this instead of regular mayo, if you want it extra spicy.
