Ultimate Chicken Avocado Grilled Cheese
Makes 1 sandwich

 

Ingredients:

2 slices whole wheat bread
2 ounces cooked chicken breast, shredded
1 oz part skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 slices of tomato
1/4 avocado
1 tbsp light ranch dressing

Directions:

1. Lightly toast the bread. (This is my secret for a perfectly crisp grilled cheese without using butter on the bread. Helps cut back on saturated fat.)

2. Mash the avocado with the ranch dressing.

3. Put a pan over medium heat. Layer the avocado and ranch mixture, tomato, chicken, and cheese between the bread.

4. Place the grilled cheese in the pan and push down on one side with a spatula.

5. Cook until each side is golden brown and the cheese has melted.

  1. This looks scrumptious! I was wondering though, as it says in the instructions “place the grilled cheese” and there is no instructions for when to do so. Just thought I should mention it so it might be clearer, did you mean the toasted bread? 🙂
    Loving the idea of mashing the avcado with the dressing, clever! That is a mighty sandwich 😀
