Who doesn't love an aesthetically pleasing sandwich that is also delicious? Not only do these ingredients blend together to create a fresh nutritious lunch, it also makes for a lovely rainbow!
The best part of the sandwich for me is the fresh sprouts! I love the perfect crunch of sprouts with the other fresh flavors.
Sprouts are also very nutrient dense because they're picked closer to the seedling level of growth before all of the nutrients can sprout into a bigger plant. For this I used alfalfa sprouts but you can choose whatever you prefer/have available.
For the bread, I really varied. Traditionally I will opt for some farmer's market sour dough or multigrain. I have also tried lavash wraps and tortillas and the results are as follows...
Prettiest- Sour dough, Neatest- tortillas, Low-Carb friendliest- lavash, Delicious-est- ALL OF THEM!
Rainbow Chicken Sandwich with Healthy Aioli
8 Sandwiches | Cook time: 20 minutes | Assembly time: 5 minutes
Notes: This refreshing sandwich is not only super healthy, but it’s also so satisfying on the eyes! I love the sprouts for extra crunch and we use our healthy garlic aioli to add a bit of bite.
24oz chicken breast
8-16 slices bread, 8 lavash wraps or 8 tortillas
400g tomatoes, sliced
200g cucumbers sliced
200g red onions, sliced
200g yellow bell pepper, sliced
200g carrot sticks
16oz alfalfa sprouts
1/2 cup (4 servings) Healthy Garlic Aioli
Grill chicken according to preference. I like to sear mine 2-3 minutes each side in a cast iron skillet and then transfer it to a 350F oven for about 15 minutes or until an internal temperature of 165F is reached.
Assemble the sandwich:
Lay out bread, wrap or tortilla.
Smear each side (if applicable) with garlic aioli.
Layer - chicken, red onion, sprouts, cucumber, yellow bell pepper, carrots and tomato.
Secure with either second slice of bread or wrap with tortilla/lavash tightly.
Slice in half and enjoy!
