Crunchy Chicken Sandwich

This flavorful chicken sandwich, which replaces bread with cucumbers, is both refreshing and satisfying.


  • 1 tablespoon ghee
  • 8 ounces chicken breast or chicken thighs
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 large cucumbers


  1. Add ghee to a small skillet on high heat. Add chicken and sear for 3 minutes on each side.
  2. Top with salsa, reduce to low heat, and cover pan. Let cook for 20-30 minutes.
  3. While the chicken cooks, make the guacamole. In a small bowl, add the avocado, onion, cumin and lime juice. Mash well and salt to taste.
  4. Check chicken. If easily shredded, remove from heat and place in bowl. Shred chicken with a fork and add salt, garlic powder and chili powder.
  5. Slice each cucumber lengthwise into two halves. Using a spoon, very gently spoon out the insides of the cucumber, creating enough space for the fillings. (I recommend saving the cucumber insides to add to your water.)
  6. Top one of the cucumber halves with the shredded chicken, and add guacamole generously. Top with the other cucumber half, and enjoy a guilt-free burrito.
