Ingredients:

For the chicken:

  • 2 lbs. organic free-range chicken breasts, trimmed and pounded if too thick to fit comfortably on a sandwich (We used tenders because those were the only free-range option, but breasts would be better)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 generous glugs of balsamic vinegar
  • 2-3 tablespoons raw honey
  • 5 drops each Lemon and Basil essential oils
  • 4 drops Marjoram essential oil
  • 2 drops Cilantro essential oil
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

For the sandwich:

  • 6-8 brioche rolls or some other buttery, soft bread (Although we shot the recipe with ciabatta, we found the combination to be dry and lacking flavor)
  • 1 English cucumber, sliced thinly
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves 

instructions:

  1. Put chicken in a container or plastic bag. Add the rest of the"for the chicken" ingredients to make a marinade. Let marinate for at least three hours, or overnight.
  2. In a food processor or blender, add the garlic and herbs and pulse until chopped. Then add avocado, Greek yogurt, raw honey, red wine vinegar, Lemon essential oil, and salt and pepper. Process until the mixture is combined. There should be darling little herby flecks.
  3. Grill chicken on a hot grill rack for 8-10 minutes, or until chicken loses its pink color and reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Let chicken stand for at least five minutes. In the meantime, cut the rolls and get ready to build your sandwiches.
  4. Put spread onto both the top and bottom halves of the roll. Layer spinach on the bottom, then chicken, then cucumber. Eat up and get your goddess glow on!
