Place the chicken breasts between 
2 pieces of clingfilm and use a rolling pin to bash to a thickness of roughly 1.5cm, then transfer the chicken to a large bowl. Add the oil, paprika, half the lime zest and some seasoning; use your hands to rub them into the chicken.

Heat a griddle pan over a medium-high heat until hot. Cook the chicken for 4-6 mins each side, or until cooked through. Top each breast with a slice of smoked cheese after turning. Transfer to a plate to rest for 2 mins.

Meanwhile, make the guacamole. Scoop the avocado flesh into a bowl and mash with a fork until smooth. Stir in the lime juice, coriander, red onion, tomatoes and jalapeños.

In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise with the remaining lime zest.

Toast the ciabatta rolls, cut-side down, on the griddle pan for 1-2 mins. Spread the lime mayonnaise on the bottom halves of the buns, top with lettuce leaves, the chicken breasts and a big spoonful of guacamole, then sandwich with the tops of the buns.
