Directions

Step 1

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until chicken is tender and juices run clear or meat thermometer reads 170 degrees F for breasts, 180 degrees F for other pieces. Set aside to cool.

Step 3

Shred the chicken using two forks until it is completely broken apart.

Step 4

Combine avocado, yogurt, thyme, mustard, lemon juice, paprika and remaining salt and pepper in a large bowl. Mix until smooth. Add the walnuts, celery and shredded chicken. Fold the mixture together to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Step 5

Spoon chicken salad onto bread to make sandwiches.
