  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup Cajun spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 4 ciabatta buns
  • mayonnaise as desired
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • 1 avocado, sliced optional


  1. Butterfly each chicken breast by making a horizontal cut lengthways along the side of the chicken breast; don’t cut all the way through. Season each chicken breast on both sides with the Cajun spice and salt and set aside.

  2. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat with the oil. When the oil is hot, add the chicken breasts and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side until browned and the internal temperature of the chicken has reached 165 F.

  3. Cut the ciabatta buns in half and toast if desired. Spread a layer of mayonnaise on one side of each bun and assemble the sandwiches with red onion, a slice of cheddar cheese, sliced tomatoes, a lettuce leaf and avocado if desired. Enjoy!
