Grilled Summer Sandwich with Garlic-Herb Mayonnaise

This sandwich may not look like anything special, but it is worth it's weight in gold! Who knew that zucchini would be so yummy in a BBQ chicken sandwich. And....oh, man.....the mayo has to be the best thing about it all! I really am not a fan of mayo, but when you add garlic, lemon juice and all kinds of herbs....yeah, I'm sold!

recipe from my favorite grilling cookbook, Modern Grilling
serves 4-6 depending on the breast size
4 chicken breasts, pounded flat
1/4 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce
4-6 of your favorite sandwich rolls
olive oil
1 zucchini cut in thin slices lengthwise
4-6 slices of Havarti cheese (about 1/4-1/2 pound)
Garlic-Herb Mayo (recipe below)
Preheat grill to medium
Barbecue your chicken for about 4 minutes per side, make sure you coat it well with barbecue sauce. When cooked through, remove from grill and set aside.
Brush a little olive oil on the cut side of each of your rolls and brown on the grill (oiled side down). Grill zucchini at the same time (without olive oil).
Now put your sandwich together. Layer on your chicken, zucchini and then the Havarti. Place back on the grill to melt the cheese. Watch it closely! Remove from heat and spread on your Garlic-Herb Mayo and enjoy!
Garlic-Herb Mayonnaise
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried parsley
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1-2 cloves of crushed garlic (I love garlic so 2 was perfect for us.)
3-4 drops of Tabasco sauce (optional, we didn't use it)
Whisk all the ingredients together and serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. DELICIOUS!
