Recipe: Healthy Avocado Chicken Sandwich

July 18, 2014

If you told me I’ve been on an avocado kick lately, I’d say you wouldn’t be wrong. I guess my mom noticed too because she called me telling me to try making a sandwich with an avocado spread. Just further proving moms are always right, this came out so delicious. Plus it’s a great, healthy meal that took me 15 minutes to whip up (since the chicken was already done). Apologies for the less-than-perfect picture — I was on a time crunch and snapped these quickly with my phone!

Avocado chicken sandwich

It’s essentially chicken with a little modified guac but the mayo makes it a little more creamy:

Makes 2 servings


Season 1/2 lb chicken breast with salt, pepper, garlic salt, Mrs. Dash (for chicken), and thyme. Fry until slightly brown with avocado oil or olive oil (I used the former). Cut into pieces.

Avocado spread

1 avocado
1/4 tomato
1/2 red Onion
2 tbs cilantro
1/2 lime
1 tsp mayonnaise
Garlic Salt
Chili Pepper
Whole wheat sandwich thins (I used Arnold)

Mash avocado in a bowl, then add chopped tomato, red onion, cilantro. Season with salt, pepper, garlic salt, and a dash of chili pepper to taste. Squeeze half a lime over and mix. Then add the a tsp of mayonnaise to smooth it out.

Toast buns, and top with avocado spread. Add pieces of chicken. Eat as a flatbread, or as a sandwich. Both are PRETTY good ;).

I had leftover chicken from the mushroom-honey dijon I made recently, so I just warmed this up using avocado oil and squeezing a lime on top for some more flavor.
