Avocado Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Avocado gives this chicken salad a rich, creamy texture as well as a healthy dose of monounsaturated fat, which protects against heart disease.

Shortcut Kitchen Tip

To peel, seed, and dice an avocado, cut into the avocado vertically using a sharp knife; you'll hit the large seed in the center, so don't expect to be able to cut all the way through the fruit. Cut around the seed; twist both sides. Pull the halves apart. Whack the seed with the knife blade; then gently twist the knife, and pull to remove the seed, which will be stuck on the blade. Gently slice several horizontal and vertical lines through the flesh, but not through the skin. Use a spoon to gently scoop the diced flesh from the shell.
