Yummm. I tried a sandwich similar to this when I was at the beach this summer and I wanted to re-create it with my own little twist. Instead of full-fat mayo I substituted plain fat-free yogurt. Adding the lemon and basil to the yogurt, this made the sandwich quite tasty with the grilled chicken and avocado.
The avocado replaces the fat from the mayonnaise with HEALTHY FATS so don’t be afraid to indulge.
If you can’t live without the mayo, substitute 1 tablespoon of mayo or lite-mayo for part of the yogurt! This recipe is so simple, give it a try!
2 small grilled chicken breasts sliced
1/2 ripe avocado, sliced
3 1/2 tablespoons plain fat-free yogurt
5-6 basil leaves (you can add more if you want a stronger taste)
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
4 slices whole grain bread (I used nature’s promise)
Directions: Chop the basil and mix yogurt with lemon. Divide the mixture evenly and spread on the 4 slices of bread, top with remaining ingredients. You can toast or press the sandwich in a panini maker to hold it all together!
