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.
Mix in mayo, mustard, juice from half a lemon and salt and pepper.
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.
