Avocado Bacon Grilled Chicken Sandwich

Juicy marinated grilled chicken breast with crispy bacon, creamy avocado, juicy tomato, crisp lettuce, all on a brioche bun. 

Some people just love their chicken. Some people love their beef. So why don’t we please them both on this Memorial Day weekend? This is the perfect grilled chicken sandwich and then we add crispy bacon and creamy avocado to just put it over the top. 

My favorite go-to chicken marinade recipe is this one — THE BEST CHICKEN MARINADE RECIPEThis grilled chicken sandwich uses a simpler variation of that recipe and makes the most flavorful and juicy chicken! The beauty of it is that it only needs about 30 minutes to marinate the chicken. 

My husband has big plans for this Memorial Day feast. He has already set his sights on smoking baby back ribs, grilling up some burgers, and of course making this Avocado Bacon Grilled Chicken Sandwich. We better start inviting some people over to help us eat all of this food!

Avocado Bacon Grilled Chicken Sandwich

When making the chicken marinade, let it marinate for about 30 minutes. I always pierce my chicken breast with a fork to let the marinade penetrate throughout the chicken. Preheat the grill to medium heat. Give a quick brush on the grill with some oil to prevent sticking.

Cook the chicken for approximately 5-6 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the chicken. You can always pick up thinly sliced chicken breasts and they will be cooked through very quickly. The internal temperature of the chicken should reach 165 degrees.

  1. Wow! Unbelievably tasty! I have a 16yr old daughter who is hard to please when it comes to food. She’s a very picky eater that she rather starve herself than eat something she doesn’t like. I surprised her with this recipe as an after-school snack and to my amazement she loved it! She loved it so much that she has asked if I can make this for her once a week. I am keeping this recipe somewhere safe so that I’ll never lose it. Thanks for sharing!

    Wow! I have to say this was an awesome, awesome tasty sandwich! My 16 yr old daughter is a very picky eater. Most times she’d rather starve than eat something she doesn’t like but she couldn’t stop raving about this sandwich. She asked me to make it for her once a week. I’m printing out this recipe and keeping it safe where it will never ever get lost!

    Absolutely amazing. I used the wheat brioche buns from Whole Foods, they are healthier than many options. They are smaller, so some of the big eaters ate two. I also sliced the chicken so it created a more even distribution. My family LOVED this recipe and it will become a regular.
