Grilled Chicken and Zucchini Sandwich

Grilled Chicken and Zucchini Sandwich

Although you can use both light and dark meat on this sandwich, it's best with breast meat. To kick-start lunch preparation, cook the zucchini on the grill while you're cooking the chicken; you can even assemble the sandwich the night before.

  • 2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
