    1. In a small bowl, combine sliced avocado and lemon juice. Add water to cover; set aside. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for high heat and lightly oil grate.
    2. Heat butter in a large heavy frying pan over medium-high heat. Saute the onions until browned and caramelised; set aside.
    3. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Place on barbecue and cook until no longer pink and juices run clear, about 5 minutes on each side. Place baps on barbecue just long enough to toast them.
    4. Spread baps with mayonnaise to taste, then layer with chicken, caramelised onion, cheese and avocado.

    This recipe is almost identical to a sandwich I had at a local cafe the other day. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I think you need to pound the chicken breasts before grilling them. The sandwiches were HUGE and were really hard to eat, as is. Also, I would recommend pureeing the avocado and using it as a spread with the mayo. I will definitely use this recipe again and Thank you!  -  31 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I marinate the chicken breasts before grilling. . .I've used honey mustard vinaigrette, Italian dressing, and Caesar dressing (not at the same time!) and all add fab flavor and juiciness to the chicken. I serve on honey wheat buns, also. . . just a little more "YUM" factor than white buns. All three of my picky daughters love these sandwiches, and they are E-Z to prepare. Gourmet-tasting sandwich with only drive-thru effort. Yay!!  -  15 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe was 5 stars with just a few minor changes!! Add some bacon - it is so delicious on this sandwich! Also, the avocado can be mashed up with the mayo to make a delicious spread(easier to eat that way). We use a little less mayo and add some garlic powder to the spread mixture. YUM!  -  23 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
