Ingredients

  • 1/2 avocado, skin removed
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Pinch of salt
  • 1 Pinch of pepper
  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • 2 slices chicken breasts
  • 1 slice mozzarella cheese
  • 2 slices tomato

Directions

Place the half an avocado in a small bowl. Mash it together with the lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Spread the avocado mixture on each slice of bread. Layer the chicken on one side of the bread. Place the cheese over the chicken and top with the tomato. Place the other piece of bread on top to close the sandwich.

Chicken Sandwich Shopping Tip

Look to the deli for cold-cuts and cheeses sliced to order; they'll taste fresher than their vacuum-sealed counterparts.

Chicken Sandwich Cooking Tip

For a more pronounced flavor, try drizzling your bread lightly with some olive oil and grilling it.
