This Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Avocado Sandwich with Tahini Ranch is the perfect sandwich to serve up at your next backyard BBQ or afternoon picnic in the sun. Grilled chicken tossed in a lemon thyme honey mustard dressing, layered with avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, and our favorite tahini ranch. All sandwiched between crusty grilled ciabatta. This tasty chicken sandwich is precisely what your warm-weather days need.
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!
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!
Oh, and bacon would be great too!
