Delicious Chicken Avocado Salad Sandwiches

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by BecR2400

Deelish!! Wonderful combination of flavors that makes a tasty and satisfying lunch or quick dinner. Great use of leftover chicken or canned chicken breast. I hope you enjoy these chicken salad sandwiches as much as we do. Tip: If you don't have access to fresh lovage, use triple the amount of fresh celery leaves.

Substantial sandwich with a tantalizing balance of flavors! I did cut the recipe in half and got two very good size sandwiches that held DH and I through the afternoon and well into the evening. We loved the avocado chicken combo, did appreciate that you suggested celery leaf as a substation for lovage and did use the celery leaf option. Also appreciated that you said Swanson's White Premium Chunk Chicken Breast worked well as that was the other option I used. We will be enjoying this again, thanks for the post.
