Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Slice a small pocket into each chicken breast with a sharp knife. Layer cheese slices, avocado slices, and sliced jalapeno inside the chicken pockets. Pinch chicken breasts closed and secure with toothpicks or skewers; place chicken into a casserole dish.

  • Whisk olive oil, lime juice, mesquite seasoning, and salt together in a bowl; drizzle half of the mixture over chicken breasts. Turn chicken breasts over and drizzle with remaining olive oil mixture; cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate.

  • Place chicken breasts on preheated grill and cook for 7 minutes; turn chicken over and brush with BBQ sauce on the cooked side. Continue grilling for about 5 minutes; turn chicken over and apply BBQ sauce to the second cooked side. Cook chicken until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 2 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Serve each chicken breast on a Kaiser roll.

This is a really tasty recipe. Although out of necessity, I substituted this time and modified the recipe and it was even better. I didn’t have chipotle barbeque sauce but I did have chipotles. Added chipotle peppers to the olive oil, lime and salt drizzle. It was maybe a tablespoon, I didn’t measure, just emptied the bottle. During grilling I brushed on sweet baby rays brown sugar and hickory barbeque sauce and the last couple of minutes of grilling I added the Monterey Jack cheese instead of at the beginning of grilling. ( The cheese always seemed to melt away when I put it on at the beginning). Anyway, it was really tasty. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This recipe was super easy to prepare and it tastes absolutely fabulous. I made it for Fathers Day and my husband loved it. Right before I was going to grill, it started pouring outside so I baked the (full, not half) chicken breasts at 375 for about 15-20 minutes each side. (I missed the direction of halving the breasts and realized it right before baking time). Halving the breasts will cut the cooking time to the amount specified in this recipe making it simple to prepare and quick to cook. I can’t wait to make this for my whole family on the grill. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe! Read More
