California Chicken Sandwich with Citrus Mayo
Our family meals are becoming less and less as my babies are getting older. So when we do sit together we are either gathered around our dining table or sometimes in the living room when we are watching sports games or movies. Having your kids home is becoming like precious gold and I always cherish it.
This California Chicken Sandwich uses California Grown Chicken with No antibiotics. That makes a healthier meal and makes me happy knowing my family is getting the best I can prepare.
The New Comfort Food
This weekend we are celebrating 3 family birthdays. Every year it is a busy weekend. I try to start early, get their gifts and cards and then I sit down and think about what to make and serve. I have the meal thought out including some fresh fruit. Then to plan my dessert. I will probably make my birthday cupcakes.
Along with the New Comfort Food theme, this is a filling yet healthier version of the California Chicken Sandwich. I included some citrus mayo which I thought would add some “Sunny” inspiration to the sandwich. Of course, my favorite part is the avocado. I really could just eat them for days.
