For Grilled Chicken:

  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

For Sandwich Assembly:

  • 8 slices of your preferred bread (sourdough, whole wheat, ciabatta, etc.)
  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 cup fresh lettuce leaves
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 slices of your favorite cheese (cheddar, Swiss, provolone, etc.)

For Basil Mayo Spread:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


Grilled Chicken:

  1. In a bowl, combine the olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper to create a marinade.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in the marinade, ensuring they are coated evenly. Allow them to marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  3. Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill the chicken for about 6-7 minutes per side or until fully cooked and no longer pink in the center.
  4. Once cooked, transfer the chicken to a cutting board and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it into thin strips.

Basil Mayo Spread:

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, finely chopped basil leaves, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Set aside.

Sandwich Assembly:

  1. Toast the slices of bread to your preferred level of crispiness.
  2. Spread a generous layer of the basil mayo spread on each slice of bread.
  3. Begin assembling the sandwich by layering lettuce leaves on the bottom slice of bread.
  4. Add a few slices of grilled chicken on top of the lettuce.
  5. Place tomato slices on the chicken, followed by red onion slices.
  6. Lay a slice of cheese over the vegetables.
  7. Top with another slice of bread spread with the basil mayo, creating a sandwich.

Final Touches:

  1. Slice the sandwich diagonally to create two appealing halves.
  2. Serve your Chicken Tomato Sandwich with a side of crispy chips, fresh salad, or your preferred accompaniment.
