- 1 cup cooked chicken shredded or chopped
- Fine sea salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
- 2 in croissant or brioche rolls cuthalf
- 2 leafs Boston Bibb lettuce
- 4 slices vine-ripened tomato
- 4 red onion rings
In a medium mixing bowl, mash avocado, pesto and lime juice together. Fold in chicken and season with fine sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste.
Load each halved roll with lettuce, tomato and red onion. Generously spoon avocado pesto chicken salad between the two. Top with other half of bread.
