Grilled Chicken and Goat Cheese Sandwiches

Probably inspired by something I saw on Pinterest, these sandwiches include some of my favorite things, spinach, avocado and goat cheese.  Feel free to use your favorite tangy cheese.  Blue or gorgonzola would be just as good.  I added chicken for a heartier dinner sandwich but a meat-free version would be just fine too.
