  • 1 loaf focaccia bread
  • 1 chicken breast

Chipotle mayo

  • 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!
