“This recipe came from a craving for a toasted sandwich. It's real easy to make. I guesstimated (high) on cooking time, since I never watch the clock as I cook, sorry.”

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. Take chicken, put in shallow baking dish, sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Cook until no longer pink, 30-40 minutes.
  3. While cooking slice bread into chunky sandwich slices and butter.
  4. When chicken is done take out and set oven to broil, place bread under broiler. **Watch the bread, it only takes a couple of minutes and will burn very quickly.**.
  5. Remove bread and keep broiler on.
  6. Cut the chicken in half, to make it thinner.
  7. Slice the avocado.
  8. Take the toasted bread bottoms, layer; 1 slice cheese, 1/2 of 1 chicken breast, 2 tomato slices, 3 basil leaves, 2 slices of avocado, 1/2 slice of chicken, 1 slice of cheese.
  9. When finished put top of sandwiches on and press down with palm of your hand.
  10. Stick back under broiler until cheese is melted, *watch closely*.
  11. I serve with a side salad.
