(NOTE…This is a pre-paleo post…but besides the corn on the cob on the plate, this meal was 100% paleo, so I’m leaving it up!)

I love the Beach Club sandwich from Jimmy Johns (Hey, did you know you can get any JJ’s sandwich wrapped in lettuce and still enjoy it without the gluten!!!!) So this recipe was inspired by JJ’s Beach Club minus turkey, plus chicken and a honey mustard marinade! My chicken “sandwich” ended up including a honey mustard marinated chicken tender on a piece of romaine lettuce, topped with tomatoes, avocado slices, and sprouts. I definitely enjoyed this meal AND enjoyed knowing it was healthy and fresh!
