As a college student, eating out at restaurants or grabbing a quick meal from a burger stand can get very expensive. So when I am working on my waistline and my budget, I try to recreate dishes from some of my favorite restaurants! This particular sandwich is my recreation of a popular restaurant/brewery’s popular menu item. This chicken sandwich is loaded with avocado, Anaheim chilies and a mild spicy mayonnaise that is sure to satisfy any spicy craving.

Prepare the chicken breast by seasoning with salt and Cayenne pepper, grill until fully cooked, about 4 minutes total. While the chicken is on the grill toast the slices of sourdough bread.
