This time I was thinking about a guacamole chicken club sandwich, I mean you really cannot go wrong adding cool and creamy guacamole to a chicken club sandwich! Although this sandwich would have been just fine with simply seasoned and grilled chicken, I could not resist the opportunity to add more flavour by marinating the chicken! It is always fun cooking with alcohol and this tequila and lime marinade sure does pack in the flavour! Another way to add flavour is to use a flavoured mayonnaise and the roasted jalapeno mayo that I had recently made fit the bill perfectly.
As expected these tequila lime grilled chicken club sandwiches with guacamole and roasted jalapeno mayo are a bit messy but oh so good! Don’t worry about the guacamole squirting out the sides or about the roasted jalapeno mayo dribbling down your chin, just sit back and savour every delectable bite of this chicken club sandwich that is anything but boring!
Chicken club sandwiches are a staple on a lot of restaurant menus and it is a little surprising as to how often they are done so poorly. After a particularly lack-luster chicken club sandwich at a restaurant a few months ago I have been on kind of a mini quest to create some tasty new chicken club sandwiches. I see the base chicken club sandwich as containing grilled chicken, bacon, lettuce, tomato and mayo and from there you can add whatever you want and the sky is the limit!

That looks SO good…I'd be happy to get this in a posh burger/sandwich bar…I'm getting so hungry looking at this! Using Tequila is quite creative and smart! 😀
Barbara Bakes says
I pinned this one. What a great combination of flavors.
oh my gosh, that seriously looks ridiculously delicious!! thanks for sharing!
What's your recipie for the mayo and the guacamole?
Anonymous: Those 2 ingredients in the list are links, just click through to see them.
Looks amazing? You need to try it because it IS amazing! We whipped these up last night. Only let the meat marinate for 2 hours or so and the flavours were amazing. I used my own simple chipotle mayo (1/2 cup of mayo with 1 Tbsp of the sauce that comes in canned chipotles) I did cheat with a store bought guacamole but it was a good one. Make sure you use a smokey bacon and not a maple or one that has sugar as one of it's main ingredients.
We'll definitely be having these often. Thinking I won't be serving them to guests though or they'll be over for dinner every night…..
Thanks Kevin! Do you mind if I post them on my Food.com recipe saver page? Will definitely post a link and give you full credit.
You forgot to double the tequila to use for marinating the grill master :O 🙂

you are the food porn sandwich king Kevin!!
Wow, what a great sandwich- anything with guacamole is just about perfect in my book! Looking forward to seeing you in Seattle!
Debi: I am glad that you enjoyed the sandwich. As long as you give credit and link back I am ok with you adding the recipe to your page.
Made these for dinner tonight. Amazing! I put them on homemade rolls. For the guacamole, I first halved the avocados & then grilled them. It added a nice depth. Will definitely be making them again.
YiFamily: I like the sound of grilling the avocados for guacamole!
Holy cow! We had this for dinner tonight, and it was AWESOME! We left out the bread, and just had everything piled up on the lettuce…perfect! Thanks for the delicious recipes!
Amber Hendrix says
Thank you for this amazing recipe! I came across the recipe via Pinterest and made it tonight. It did not disappoint! It was fabulous! I will definitely be making this again. You have inspired me to try new things and get out of my boring dinner rut. Thanks so much!
Im going out right now and buying the ingredients i will come back and leave my results!!
I know the recipe calls fro tequila but I do not drink (alcohol) and tequila around here cost 15-100 bucks….do you think I could omit it or would you recommend it?
Anonymous: Yes, you can omit the tequila. I very often make a version without it that I simply call cilantro lime grilled chicken.
