Ingredients

Grilled Chicken

  • 2 lbs. Chicken Breast
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cups Olive Oil (or canola or vegetable)
  • 3 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced (or 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper

Toppings:

  • 1 lb. Bacon (cooked until crispy)
  • 2 to 3 Avocados
  • 3 Tomatoes (sliced)
  • Butter or Green Leaf Lettuce
  • 1/4 Red Onion
  • Mayonnaise
  • 4 to 6 Brioche Buns

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, stir together oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, salt, and pepper. Pierce chicken breasts with a fork all over. Place in a large Ziploc bag. Pour marinade over chicken. Let marinate for at least 30 minutes. 4 - 5 hours is ideal.

  2. Preheat grill to medium heat. Brush grill with oil to prevent sticking.Place chicken on the grill. Cook for approximately 5 - 6 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of chicken. The internal temperature of the chicken should reach 165 degrees. Remove chicken from grill and let rest for 5 minutes.

  3. Cook bacon until crispy. Set aside.

  4. Spread mayonnaise on brioche buns. Spread avocado on one side. Top with chicken, bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, and red onion.
