The Chicken-Avo Salad Sandwich

Lunchtime is one of the best parts of any hard working day because you get a well-deserved break as well as refueling your internal engine getting set for the second half of the day. Unfortunately, the typical store bought deli meat is not going to make it on the list of “healthy options”. Most deli meats contain extremely high amounts of sodium, dietary cholesterol, and often preservatives with some very unnatural ingredients. However, this recipe is one that is not only all-natural, but a brilliantly delicious alternative to a classically mayo-filled heavy deli classic. This is the Chicken Avocado Salad Sandwich! The ingredients are fresh, the recipe is simple, and the taste is fantastic. Try this out for a lunch time boost for your health and your energy.

  • 1/4 avocado
  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup organic shredded chicken, precooked

In a bowl, mash up the avocado with the lemon juice and yogurt until it is completely combined. Next, add the chicken and lightly mix until the chicken is coated. That’s it!

For the Sandwich:

  • Chicken Avocado Filling
