Garlic Chicken Sandwich with Jicama Slaw

from Mud Pie Gourmet

(Serves 4)
2 chicken breasts cut in half

2 cloves garlic, minced
3 T lime juice
1 T olive oil 
1/8 tsp cumin
Kosher salt and ground pepper

Combine all ingredients in a ziplock bag and marinate for at least 30 minutes. 
Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat (or use a grill).  Saute chicken for about 4 minutes on each side or until cooked through.  Remove from heat. 

Jicama Slaw:

3/4 cup jicama, julienned
1 T finely chopped onion
1 T chopped cilantro
1 tsp lime juice
1/8 tsp cumin
2 T plain yogurt
1/2 tsp minced jalapeno or serrano pepper
Kosher salt and ground pepper

Combine ingredients. 

Pepper Jack Cheese (I used baby Swiss)
Whatever else you love!

Place chicken on good bread. Top with sliced tomatoes, avocados, Pepper Jack cheese and jicama slaw.

*This makes an excellent sandwich!  Jeff and Jacob couldn't get enough--but they didn't add the jicama slaw.  I ended up eating all the jicama slaw myself (no complaints on my part!), but this sandwich can stand alone without the slaw and still be considered superb.
