Green Chicken Ciabatta Sandwich

chickavocadosandwich09

I call this a GREEN chicken sandwich because all the other ingredients besides the chicken are green in color: avocado, green onion, cucumber, and spinach.

I made this sandwich for a light lunch with friends.  It was a little fancier than deli meat and cheese, but not too difficult for a quick lunch.  It’s also great as a make ahead.

Start with two cans of chicken breast.

Add in half an avocado, diced up in the skin.  You can then easily scoop this out with a spoon into the bowl.

Dice two green onions for a little kick.

Peel and dice up half a cucumber for crunch.

If you want a carb-free option, this would be great in a leaf of romaine lettuce too!

Toast and slice the ciabatta and lay down a bed of baby spinach.

Spoon on some of the chicken salad and enjoy an easy but fancy chicken salad sandwich.
