4. Remove chicken from marinade (discard marinade) and grill over medium heat until cooked through.
5. Top chicken with cheese and remove once cheese is melted.
6. Combine Spicy Aioli Mayonnaise ingredients and spread over toasted ciabatta rolls. 
7. Add chicken, bacon, and remaining ingredients to each roll.
8. Serve hot and enjoy!!

*I bought some big kaiser rolls for a different dinner but ended up not being able to make it so I was on the hunt for a yummy grilled chicken recipe to use the rolls for. I found this one on Pinterest and they were absolutely delicious! It tasted like a sandwich I would order at a restaurant. They were so easy too! I loved the grilled chicken and cheese and avocado, yum! The mayo was delicious too!
*They would be even better on ciabatta rolls. I didn't have Italian dressing so I sprinkled the chicken breasts with Italian seasoning and then used the olive oil and lemon. I only made three sandwiches so I only made 1/4 cup mayo and it was enough.
