Tangy Chicken Sandwich ( Asiago, Avocado and Citrus pan sauce)

Tired of the typical chicken sandwich with lettuce , tomato and mayo? Here's a twist on a classic.
This tender chicken sandwich packs a huge punch of flavors and textures where simple ingredients meet bold taste.
Sitting down for dinner with a knife and fork is not always possible and besides, sometimes I just want to have a sandwich and a cold drink . This makes a great meal and can also be cut down to smaller bites for a great cocktail sandwich .
A simple pan seared chicken breast is transformed with a simple pan sauce and can truly be the life of the party.

Ingredients:                                Pan Sauce:
6 chicken breasts                       1/2 cup orange juice     
1 Avocado                                1 Tbsp. diced onion
Asiago cheese                           1 Tbsp. brown sugar  
Fresh lettuce                             1 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary
Salt and pepper                         1/2 Tbsp. butter
1 baguette or ciabatta bun

     Take chicken breasts and pound flat with a mallet. Add salt and pepper to both sides and sear in a very hot pan with a little oil for 4 minutes each side. Once breasts are cooked set aside and keep warm.              

Pan Sauce:
In the same pan on medium/ high heat add chopped onion and rosemary- saute for 2 minutes.
Add orange juice, brown sugar stir well, scraping brown bits from pan then reduce heat to medium and simmer until sauce is reduced by half. Add butter to pan and stir until melted.

Slice bread then spread a little mayonnaise on both sides. Add fresh lettuce, chicken breast, sliced avocado, asiago cheese then slather with citrus pan sauce and enjoy!

That looks delicious! (oj and rosemary always a winner as flavorings) But watch out that McD doesnt't steal your idea and turn it into a McTangy. We weren't able to visit Ronald this weekend...maybe the next!
