Lemon Chicken Sandwich with Pesto Mayo

Lemon, avocado, pesto, grilled....what else says summer like these flavors!  This sandwich was light and very  tasty, perfect for a weeknight summertime night.  The recipe called for sourdough bread, but I have 2 packages of hamburger buns that needed to be used, so we used those.....still great!   The pesto mayo was the kicker for me, so dang good!
