Healthy Chicken Salad Recipe

Healthy Chicken Sandwich Recipe

If you’re like me, sometimes you just want a really good and flavorful sandwich. This can be tough if you are more health-conscious since there are plenty of hidden calories in certain ingredients that you may usually use. This is especially true about condiments.

Grilled or pan-seared chicken that we are using here can still offer plenty of flavour as opposed to using breaded or fried chicken. It is a simple way to cut out some unnecessary calories without sacrificing how delicious it can be!

Many people think that avocado isn’t a very healthy option, but it is! It’s full of good fats that will keep you feeling full without the guilt. The same goes for the cheese. The key is portion control and moderation. You don’t have to give up foods that you love completely, just be more aware of how much you’re eating.

The Healthy chicken sandwich recipe that I am sharing with you below is a go-to for me for lunch or as a quick dinner if I don’t feel like spending a lot of time in the kitchen after a long weekday. Plus, there are endless substitutions to make it perfect for any member of your family!

Notes

You can use any type of bread you like such as sourdough instead of the multigrain.
I like romaine lettuce but you can also use arugula or even spinach for added flavor and nutrition
The same is said for the cheese. Provolone always works nicely instead of mozzarella.
Plain hummus is best for this, but you can add your own seasonings to it or buy a specific flavor to add a little bit more depth to the sandwich. It is a much healthier and yummy alternative to mayonnaise.
Feel free to purchase already cooked chicken breast, or cook it ahead of time and store it in the fridge. It will last up to 3 days.
