I’m just going to say this right off the bat, I love this chicken sandwich. I know some people try to play things cool and not be so overly excited about things, but that’s not me. I’m so excited to share this sandwich. It feels perfect for spring and summer! 

Plus, I don’t make sandwiches often, so this feels fresh and new, which always excites me!!

And most importantly, I think you guys will love it. The flavors are light for warmer weather, but it’s also super hearty with the grilled chicken, avocado, and ranch! 

For whatever reason this time of year always makes me think about sandwiches you might order out. 

I picture sitting outside on the patio at one of the town “hot spots” when the weather is nice. Then ordering up a yummy sandwich with a side of fries

A chicken sandwich with a side of fries screams summer as a kid to me!

The details

This chicken sandwich does have some layers. The chicken is tossed with my go-to oil-based honey mustard and herb dressing. It’s a little sweet and spicy with lots of lemons and fresh basil.

Then grill up the chicken. Be sure to save some of the dressing for drizzling over the sandwich! 

While the chicken is grilling I usually make my favorite tahini ranch. You’re replacing sour cream and mayo with tahini. So it’s tahini, plus dried herbs, and then a little lemon. It’s delicious, and a nice lighter ranch option.

What’s great about tahini ranch, is that nothing in the dressing will spoil. This makes it nice for packing up for parties and picnics 

When the chicken has grilled and the ranch is made, it’s assembly time.

Grill a nice long loaf of ciabatta bread then spread over lots of tahini ranch. Layer with avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, and plenty of pepperoncini (I’m obsessed right now). Then add the chicken and pour over the remaining herb dressing. 

Finished with arugula and more ranch! You could also add a yummy cheese like pepper jack or Swiss, or even blue cheese!

Tahini Ranch

Instructions

  • 1. To make the dressing. Combine all ingredients in a glass jar and whisk until smooth. Taste and adjust the salt and pepper.
    2. In a large bowl, toss the chicken with 1/2 of the dressing. Let sit 10 minutes. Set your grill, grill pan, or skillet to medium-high heat. Grill the chicken until lightly charred and cooked through, turning halfway through cooking, about 10 to 12 minutes.
    3. To make the tahini ranch, combine everything in a bowl, whisking in 1/4 to 1/2 cup water to thin the dressing. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
    4. Rub each half of the bread with olive oil. Grill the bread, cut side down, for 3-5 minutes or until light grill marks appear.
    5. Working with the bottom piece of bread, spread over some of the tahini ranch, then layer on the avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, and pepperoncini. Add the chicken, then drizzle the remaining dressing over the chicken. Add the arugula and cheese. Drizzle with the tahini ranch. Add the top half of the ciabatta and gently push down on the sandwich. Cut into 4-6 sandwiches. Enjoy with the remaining tahini ranch on the side.

    Hi Tieghan!

    Didn’t get to this particular recipe during the summer but boy was it great for the fall! As usual, the flavors were outstanding and we moaned our way through the sandwich. Had enough for lunch the next day. Now that we are empty nesters, it’s nice to have leftovers!

    Best sandwich I’ve had in a while. I didn’t have the right bread, so I used toasted multigrain bread and that worked out fine. I also used the dried sun-dried tomatoes since I didn’t have the oil-packed. Added extra cayenne to the dressing. 🙂

    Another amazing recipe! I ended up using leftover dressing on salad and mozzarella, and Husband slathered the remaining tahini-ranch on his next sandwich.

    One of these fed us for two lunches, and stayed well in the fridge after being tightly wrapped. The only trouble was that ours came out big, bulky, and so very messy.

    Thank you, Tieghan!
