Healthy Chicken Salad Sandwich

Today's dinner was a Chicken Salad Sandwich accompanied with a green salad.

Looks ordinary at first.  But my husband took one bite of the Chicken Salad Sandwich and exclaimed, "WOW!  What did you put in this?  It's really good!!"

I just smiled.  He started by saying that it didn't taste like a lot of mayo..  I had him guess the secret ingredient.  Told him that something was mashed in.

Secret Ingredient??


Chicken salad sandwich usually comprises of chicken, mayo, and some crunch factor. Replacing mayo for avocado adds healthy fats.

Healthy Chicken Salad Sandwich
Prep Time: 10 minutes
12.5 oz of chicken white meat (You can buy it in a can at most grocery stores)
1 avocado (I recommend one large avocado or two small ones)
some chopped celery
some mayo (optional: only if your avocado isn't large enough)
2 slices of bread (I use Safeway Brand 15 grain bread)
sea salt and pepper to taste
paprika to taste (optional)

In a medium sized bowl, mix chicken, avocado, diced celery.  If your avocado is not big enough (like mine, I only had a small avocado on hand), add a tablespoon or two of mayo depending on the consistency.  Add sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.

Put one slice of bread on the plate.  Spread a generous amount of chicken salad.  Place the other slice of bread on top.

Easy, tasty dinner (or lunch) !!  Serve with a salad.


I made this a second time but used a large avocado instead.  Did not need any mayo then.
So either use one large avocado or two small ones.
