Ciabatta Chicken Sandwich with Avocado & Salsa Verde

Here's a delicious and simple spin on a WW sandwich recipe.  It's easy to make and takes only a few ingredients, but has lots of flavor.  Pair it with a quick soup or salad for a light and delicious meal.  To me, this meal just screams weekend brunch... and who doesn't love brunch, right?  It makes 4 servings, so it's perfect to enjoy with a couple of friends or kiddos.  Especially when mixed with yogurt and avocado, salsa verde has a very mild flavor that the whole family can enjoy.

Ciabatta Chicken Sandwich with Avocado & Salsa Verde

- 12 oz. chicken breast lunch meat, thinly sliced
- 1/4 c. salsa verde (the green one)
- 2 T. non-fat plain Greek yogurt
- 3 oz. non-fat feta cheese
- 8 oz. Ciabatta bread
- 1 medium ripe avocado, sliced
- 2 t. lime juice, optional
-salt & pepper, to taste


1.  Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking spray.  Heat chicken over low-medium heat until warmed through.

2.  Combine salsa, yogurt, and lime juice in a small bowl.

3.  Slice the bread through the middle, leaving the very end attached.  Pull out some of the bread from the center, if desired.  Spread salsa mixture on both sides of bread..

4.  Arrange avocado slices evenly across the bread, sprinkle with feta.  Top with warm chicken.

5.  Close the bread and cut into 4 even pieces.  Serve while chicken is still warm.  (9 pts. per serving)

I served it with this fresh vegetable soup


  1. I made this today for dinner with the fresh veggie soup...BOTH were delicious! :) Thanks for the ideas!

  2. Awesome! I'm glad you enjoyed it. That veggie soup is wonderful - I made it for lunch the other day on my day off when Michael was working because it was so easy to make a "mini" version of it with random veggies leftover from other recipes.
