Key West Chicken Avocado Sandwiches

Avocados have lots of health benefits from protecting the body's good cholesterol levels and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. Avocados have necessary minerals like potassium, calcium, Vitamin C and K, folic acid, copper, sodium, and dietary fibers.

This sandwich is packed with lots of flavor. Whole grains, lean protein, and belly fat trimming ingredients make this a healthy and satisfying meal. When buying the rolls or buns for this sandwich check the calorie count and aim for 150-180 to avoid overdoing it with calories.

I made this for dinner but think this would be perfect for taking to work for lunch.

Stars of the Show:
  • 1 cup mashed avocado
