Avocado, Tomato & Chicken Sandwich
From EatingWell: January/February 2014
In this healthy chicken sandwich recipe, the avocado is mashed to create a healthy creamy spread.
- 2 slices multigrain bread
- 1/4 ripe avocado
- 3 ounces cooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, sliced (see Tip)
- 2 slices tomato
- Toast bread. Mash avocado with a fork and spread onto one piece of toast. Top with chicken, tomato and the second piece of toast.
Tips & Notes
- Tip: If you don’t have cooked chicken, you can poach it to use in a recipe. Place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a skillet or saucepan. Add lightly salted water to cover and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 15 minutes, depending on size. (Eight ounces raw boneless, skinless chicken breast yields about 1 cup sliced, diced or shredded cooked chicken.)
