Chicken breast cutlets, which are thinner than regular chicken breasts, are perfect for this recipe. Make a guacamole-type spread with avocado, jalapeño, lime zest, and lime juice, then sprinkle hearty slices of tomatoes lightly with salt and pepper. Voilà—you have the makings of the ultimate chicken sandwich. Slather slices of toasted whole wheat bread with avocado mayo, layer in tomatoes garnished with cilantro, top with Bibb lettuce, and add the chicken breast hot off the grill pan.
