Spicy Chicken Sandwiches with Cilantro-Lime Mayo, can be GF

I could eat these sandwiches everyday. They are so good! They have a nice crunch since they are coated in tortilla chip crumbs. They are the perfect alternative to a big fried chicken cutlet sandwich. These can easily be made GF if you use the right tortilla chips and use your own GF bun!

1/4 C reduced fat mayo
2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1 tsp fresh lime juice
1 garlic clove, minced

1/4 C egg substitute (or 1 egg beaten)
3 Tbsp hot sauce such as Tabasco or Chalula (cut this ingredient if you don't like heat)
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, about 6 ounces each
6 C tortilla chips
2 Tbsp olive oil

4 kaiser rolls or bun of your choice
12 red onion slices
4 lettuce leaves

1. To prepare the mayo, combine the first 4 ingredients. (I know, rocket science eh?)

2. To prepare chicken, combine egg substitute, hot sauce, oregano, and salt in a large zip top plastic bag. Cut chicken breast halves in half horizontally to form 4 cutlets. Add chicken to bag; seal. Marinate in refrigerator 2 hours or up to 8 hours, turning bag occasionally.

3. Place tortilla chips in a food processor and process 1 minute or until ground. Place ground chips in a shallow dish.

4. Working with one cutlet at a time, remove chicken from marinade, allowing excess to drip off. coat chicken completely in chips. Set aside. Repeat with remaining chicken and chips.

5. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil to pan, swirling to coat. add chicken to pan, cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned and done. Spread mayo evenly over cut sides of rolls. Layer bottom half of each roll with 3 onion slices, 1 lettuce leaf, and 1 chicken cutlet and top with top halves of rolls. Serves 4.
