Skinny Chicken Avocado Salad Sandwiches

Blogging Day 366: a sandwich. You’d think after a year of blogging and cooking full time I’d be sharing things like poached eggs with hollandaise sauce or something elegant like that. Nope. Just keepin’ it real around here with a skinny chicken avocado salad on a hoagie roll. Yeah. . . we’re classy like that.

Skinny Chicken Avocado Salad Sandwiches

This sandwich may not look like much but it is sooooooo delish, you will be looking for any excuse to make it. My husband has asked me to make it twice in the past two weeks and just said the other day, “So those sandwiches, they aren’t real hard to make right? Cause I’m probably gonna want it again soon…” There you have it. From Mister Business Casual himself (aka MBC, aka my good lookin hubbs). And I just have to mention, he is not a cold-cut sandwich guy. It always has to be hot with melty cheese, or toasty grilled. But this chicken avocado sandwich is served chilled or at room temp and he loooooves it. So it’s gotta be good right?

(P.S. He doesn’t even know it’s skinny  AND it has greek yogurt in it which he detests – shhhh! )

Looks gorgeous Tiffany! Could totally go for some chicken salad right now. Pinning.
Have a beautiful Wednesday!

    I love how simple chicken salad is, and when you throw in some avocados it just amps up the flavor and creaminess- love it! Thanks so much Melanie – Happy wednesday to you!!! 🙂

You can never have enough chicken salad in your life! Love all the avocado in this one!

That looks so good!

Looks like the perfect filling for a wrap, too. I’m always looking for something good to throw in besides deli meat. Trying it this week!

Made this for dinner time tonight. Used drumsticks instead of breasts. Used spicy brown mustard instead of Dijon. Was delicious! Thanks for sharing.

This is so yummy and flavorful! We loved everything about it and I will definitely make it again!

What did you use to season your chicken when you cooked it? And how did you cook it? Sauté, bake? Thanks
