Chicken and Avocado BLT

Note: 1 Sandwich
2 slices of any crusty bread (I used my Olive Oil and Rosemary Bread)
1/4 cup shredded chicken (about 1/2 chicken breast)
1/4 of an avocado
2 slices of bacon
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1/8 cup mixed greens
2 tomato slices

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  On a foil lined baking sheet place your bacon slices.  Bake for 8-10 minutes depending on how crispy you like your bacon.  

You can either buy pre-cooked chicken, but I just grilled mine in a pan for 7 minutes on each side with a little salt and pepper.  

Cut a quarter of an avocado into small cubes.  Spread the mayonnaise on both sides of the bread.  Top with the mixed greens, tomato, chicken, and avocado.  Once the bacon is ready, pat off with paper towels to absorb grease and put on top of avocado.  Serve and enjoy!

*Justine's Tip*- When freezing bacon, don't freeze it in the package.  Lay it out on a baking sheet in a single layer, cover with aluminum foil, and freeze until hard.  Once all of the bacon is frozen, remove from the sheet and place in a zip top bag.  Now you can take 1 or 2 pieces out at a time without having the trouble of separating them!
