I made this recipe for 2 but altered the recipe a little. From "Chipotle Grilled Chicken with Avocado Sandwich" I used the marinade and marinated 8 ounces of chicken tenders for about 1 hour before cooking. I used 120 calorie hamburger buns (toasted), spread the mayo mixture on each half, then layered with romaine, chicken, cheese, and avocado. Made for a nice weeknight dinner along with a salad of Heirloom tomatoes with homemade ranch dressing.
