Grilled BLT Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwiches with Chicken and Avocado

 

A club sandwich, also called a clubhouse sandwich, is a sandwich of bread (occasionally toasted), sliced cooked chicken, fried bacon, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise. Some versions frequently have two layers which are separated by an additional slice of bread. This version has the added creaminess of sliced avocado.

 

You can add grated carrots or alfalfa sprouts too for some added crunch, or arugula for a little extra freshness.
