Chicken Avocado Sandwich

Ingredients:
4 oz chicken breast
1/2 small hass avocado (50g)
1 clove garlic (crushed)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1 romaine lettuce leaf
2 thin slices of whole grain bread (I’m using Dave’s Killer Bread – 21 Whole Grains and Seeds)

Instructions:

  1. Spray some avocado oil on a small skillet and add chicken breast. Set over medium heat. Add salt, pepper, garlic, and onion. Cook thoroughly. Remove from heat and transfer chicken into a bowl.
  2. Shred the chicken. If you have a large mixer, you can use the flat beater attachment and use a splash guard to shred the chicken. If not, use a fork to hold the chicken steady and another fork to scrap and tear the chicken flesh into small, shredded pieces.
  3. Add avocado and mix well.
  4. Spread mixture on bread and add lettuce.
