What a wonderful sandwich. I really expected it to be spicier, instead it was just enough heat, which complimented the coolness of the avacado. Not at all like a chicken salad. The only thing wrong, was there wasn't any left to take for lunch the next day. Next time I think I will make it with smoked chicken. Yummy! Made for PAC Fall 2008.

We really expected this to be a little more on the fiery side, which was a slight disappointment for us.
DH threw in a couple of slices of crispy bacon and a slice of cheese for good measure...and gently heated his in the toaster oven for a few minutes....which certainly didn't hurt it !!
A good sandwich...just needed more fire for our taste.
Made for PRMR.

This is a delicious sandwich. The heat of the chicken with the taste of the sourdough bread was a great combination. My husband made according to the directions; we will make again for a quick meal.
