  • 1 large loaf of country style whole-grain bread sliced in half horizontally
  • 3/4 cup good quality mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped basil
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 2 1/2 cups roasted chicken from my Simple Roasted Chicken or a rotisserie chicken
  • 1/2 cup crumbled gorgonzola blue cheese
  • 2 ripe tomatoes sliced
  • 1 avocado pitted and sliced
  • 6 strips cooked bacon
  • 1 cup sprouts I used radish sprouts, they have a peppery bite that I love
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper
  1. Scoop out some of the inside on the top half of the bread. (Save the insides to make croutons or breadcrumbs later) Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise and basil. Spread the mayonnaise evenly over both halves of bread. Top the bottom half with the spinach being sure to spread evenly. Top the spinach with the chicken and sprinkle the chicken with the blue cheese. Layer the tomatoes over the blue cheese and then add the avocado (be sure to coat with lemon if you're not eating the sandwich right away.) Top the avocado with the bacon and sprouts. Season with salt and pepper. Place the top half of the bread on the sandwich and gently press down.
  3. If serving immediately, slice into 4-6 pieces depending on the number of people you will be serving.
  4. If serving later, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to eat. Slice before serving. (If you're taking your sandwich with you somewhere that would be difficult to slice, like the beach....unwrap before you leave and slice...carefully rewrap and pack in your basket, backpack or back pocket.) :-)
