Chipotle Chicken Avocado Melt
This Chipotle Chicken Avocado Melt is a copycat of the Panera Bread sandwich, complete with focaccia bread, smoked gouda & roasted red peppers!
Servings: 4 servings
- 1 loaf focaccia bread
- 1 chicken breast
- 1/4 cup roasted red peppers, sliced
- 1 avocado, sliced
- 4 slices smoked gouda cheese
- 1/3 cup light mayo
- 1 tbsp adobo sauce (from a can of chipotles)
- 1/2 chipotle pepper, minced
Add chicken breast to a large pot of boiling water and cook for 15-20 minutes or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165 F. Remove from water, then shred chicken and season with salt & pepper.
Slice focaccia in half lengthwise if needed. Mix ingredients together for chipotle mayo, then spread a little over a tablespoon over one half of focaccia bread.
Top with 1/4 of the chicken, about 1 tbsp roasted red pepper, 1/4 of the avocado and one cheese slice. Top with remaining slice of focaccia bread, then add to a skillet over medium heat. Place lid overtop and cook for 3-4 minutes until cheese has just melted. Serve and enjoy!
