Author Notes: This grilled chicken sandwich is an easy and delicious weeknight meal. It's great for families. You can leave all the toppings on the side and let everyone assemble their own sandwich! Aioli is also so versatile. It can also be used as a dip or salad dressing. Best of all, you can keep most of these ingredients in the pantry.heather
