Grilled Garlic & Lime Chicken Sandwich

   

It's summertime and that means easy and quick dinners needed that won't heat up the whole house!

I love grilled chicken sandwiches when we go out for lunch or dinner! There are so many creative ways to do a chicken sandwich. This garlic & lime marinated chicken sandwich is so yummy! Serve it with some tortilla chips and salsa or nacho cheese.

If you have an extra slice of lime, make yourself a Diet Coke and Lime drink! So easy. So refreshing!!! (And yes, that is purple ice! It's one of those refreeze-able cubes that won't water down your drink! I love them!)

When you turn to put your chicken in the fridge.... Notice that your one year old has been so kind as to pull out all the ziplock bags for you! (Such a nice boy!)

When you are ready to start dinner. Pull out your chicken. Heat up your grill or grill pan.

When your grill pan is nice and hot, put on your chicken.

Don't flip your chicken until it has some nice grill marks!

While your chicken is grilling... Slice an avocado. (Mmmm... our family LOVES avocado!)
