Ingredients
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 lime
  • 1 orange
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon adobo all-purpose seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 6 -ounce skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 3/4 cup fresh tomato salsa, plus more for serving
  • 6 slices pepper jack cheese (about 8 ounces)
  • 6 challah rolls or other soft rolls, halved
  • 1 Hass avocado, sliced
Directions

Finely grate the zest of the lemon, lime and orange into a medium bowl. Squeeze in the juice of each fruit. Add the chili powder, adobo seasoning and olive oil; whisk to combine. Add the chicken and coat well with the marinade; cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.

Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. Grill the chicken breasts until cooked through, about 8 minutes per side, turning once. Move the chicken to the cooler side of the grill (or reduce the heat on the stove) and top each piece with 1 tablespoon salsa and 1 slice cheese. Cover and cook until the cheese melts, 1 to 2 minutes. Place a chicken breast on each roll bottom; add a few slices of avocado and cover with the roll top. Serve with more salsa, if desired.
