  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  4. 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).
  5. Serve each chicken breast on a Kaiser roll.

I made this recipe with small variations to ingredients. I used a packaged spicy mesquite marinade which I mixed according to directions but refrigerated overnight. I also substituted sweet baby...

Absolutely delicious!! We didn’t serve it on a bun. We loved it and will definitely make it again!

I made this the first time without the sandwich part and it was delicious like that too

These grilled up nicely and the flavor was great. I will make these again and stuff more jalapeno inside.
