2 chicken breasts

barbecue sauce

1 medium yellow onion

roasted jalapeno aioli (see recipe below)

mixed greens

ciabatta bread

Start by caramelizing your onion. Slice onion and place in sauté pan with a tablespoon of butter and a dash of sugar and cook on medium heat for 20 minutes. Stir frequently so onions do not burn. Add water if needed to help carmelization process.

Grill chicken breasts with barbecue sauce. Let chicken cool for five minutes, then slice. Time to build your sandwich. Brush aioli on both pieces of ciabatta. Layer chicken, then top with caramelized onions and greens. I like to grill the ciabatta bread, too for extra flavor.barbecue chicken sandwich with roasted jalapeño aioli on aliceandlois.com

Roasted Jalapeno Aioli

2 jalapenos

2 garlic cloves

1 cup mayo

juice from 1 lime

Roast the jalapenos in the oven under the broiler. Line cookie sheet with aluminum foil and lightly spray with oil. Broil peppers for ten minutes until the skin starts to blacken. Turn over peppers and roast for another 5-10 minutes.

Put jalapenos in big Ziploc and let steam for 10 minutes or until cool.

Peel the skin off the jalapenos under cold water and remove stems and seeds.

Place peppers and garlic cloves in a mini food processer and pulse for 10 seconds. Put mayo and lime juice in the processer and pulse another ten seconds.barbecue chicken sandwich with roasted jalapeño aioli on aliceandlois.comHope you enjoy this sandwich as much as I do.
