Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich


Last week I was browsing through my recipe pins on Pinterest and landed on www.closetcooking.com.  I was originally going there to get the recipe for another sandwich when on the sidebar I noticed the Grilled Chicken and Club Sandwich with Avocado and Chipotle Caramelized Onions and it looked delicious!

Needless to say, that’s what I was making for dinner. It turned out to be a delicious sandwich and it will be on the menu rotation at our house.
Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich
Serving: Makes one sandwich
1 small chicken breast, pounded thin
Salt and pepper or your favorite grilled meat seasoning (I used McCormick Mesquite Seasoning)
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 leaves lettuce
2 slices tomato
2 slices bacon, cooked
1/2 small avocado, sliced
Chipotle caramelized onions (recipe below)
1 sandwich bun
Brush your grill with oil and heat it to medium heat.  Season the chicken and grill until cooked, about 5-7 minutes per side.  Assemble the sandwich and enjoy.

Chipotle Caramelized Onions
When I cooked the onions, I left the chipotle out.  For a little kick, you can use the chipotle.
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cups onion, sliced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup water
1 chipotle chili in adobo, chopped
Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat.  Add the onions, chipotle chili, vinegar, sugar, and water.  Cook, covered, until completely tender and caramelized and golden, about 40-50 minutes, adding more water as needed.

Day Trip to Gray Living

Since summer is nearing an end and I start back to work on Monday, Mom and I had been talking about taking a end of summer shopping trip to Dallas. Well, life got busy and we had decided to postpone until Labor Day....until we discovered Gray Living. I originally read about Gray Living when Sasha at House Dressing Style did a store spotlight. I sent the link to my mom and our plans quickly changed and we were on the road to McKinney bright and early Saturday morning!

I snapped some photos with my phone. You can see more and better ones at House Dressing Style or by following Gray Living on Facebook.










I fell in LOVE with this chair! I have had a slight obsession with this fabric lately and this chair was so comfortable. We are adding on to our house and I am going with a gray color scheme so I'm thinking I most definitely need it :)




After we left Gray Living we visited a lot of the other shops in the downtown square. It was such a quaint, cute little town square.




Another one of my favorite shops was Patina Green Home and Market. Patina Green has such neat finds plus they serve lunch.







I bought a rustic tin picture frame and such a rare find...an antique drill press that was used to build old barns. It seemed to be a good fit for the farmer :)

After our morning shopping adventure we stopped at Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers. We had heard good things and were very pleased with our choice. We had cheeseburgers and shoestring French fries that were great, but the best part was the frozen custard! My custard of choice was peanut butter and banana and oh my goodness, it was heavenly!




Before we headed home we made a stop at IKEA. It is such a fun store! We racked up on some fun goodies.










We had such a fun day plus girl getaways are always nice! And it doesn't hurt that I picked up some cute things while we were there :)

And to my friend Kim...I would have called, but it was last minute and we were more than "20 minutes away"! Next time we will come closer to you!
