This is a quick recipe for lunch on the go. In today’s busy world people don’t really have time to cook. There are more fast food restaurants than ever before. Everyone wants to eat something quickly and move on with their lives. Eating out can be expensive and majority of the time unhealthy. On the days that I don’t have much time to cook, I turn to the sandwiches for a quick and healthy lunch. If you’re bored of eating the same sandwich all over again try this one. Chicken avocado salad sandwich.
Sandwiches are great because you can personalize them. Add whatever ingredients you like. You can eat them cold or warm. And even if you can’t cook at all you can make a sandwich.
Today, I prepared a sandwich with chicken avocado salad. Recently, I’ve been hearing a lot about the benefits of eating avocado. It’s great for your skin, helps you lower cholesterol, has lots of fiber, potassium and vitamin K. However, I was never a big fan of avocado. To me, avocado is very blend. But since there are many health benefits of eating avocados I try to incorporate it in my diet. The best way for me to eat it, is by adding other ingredients to it. It works great in the salad because of its creamy texture and makes a nice moist sandwich.
To make 3 sandwiches we need:
- 1 baguette (you can us a whole wheat to make it more healthy)
- 1 avocado
- 1 cups of cooked and shredded chicken
- ½ small onion, finely chopped
- 1 clove of garlic, grated
- 2 tbsp. of lemon juice
- Handful of cilantro, finely chopped
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Veggies of choice to put on top ( I used radishes, onions, olives and tomatoes)
To make it:
Cut the avocado in half around the pit. Scoop out the inside of the avocado with a spoon. Remove the pit by sticking a knife into the pit and twisting it. Remove the other half of the avocado. Smash the avocado with the fork. Add the lemon juice to prevent the avocado from browning. Mix all the ingredients.
Toast the baguette and cut it into 3 pieces. Cut each piece in half and spread the avocado salad. I like to add fresh veggies on top. I added some tomato, sliced red onion, radishes and olives. You can add anything you like. This is a simple sandwich that anyone can make. Even a person who doesn’t know how to cook at all!!!
