HG's Chop-tastic Chicken BLT Sandwich

Double Your Pleasure!

This is like TWO delicious sandwiches in one... Only it has way fewer calories than either of the traditional versions. Yum times two!

Prep: 10 minutes

Ingredients:
2 slices light wheat bread
1 tbsp. light mayonnaise
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
Dash black pepper
3 oz. cooked and finely chopped skinless chicken breast
1 tbsp. finely chopped bagged sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
1 tbsp. precooked crumbled bacon (like the kind by Oscar Mayer)
1 tbsp. chopped scallions
2 butter lettuce leaves (or other medium lettuce leaves)

Directions:
If you like, lightly toast bread.

In a medium bowl, combine mayo, lemon juice, and pepper. Mix well. Add all remaining ingredients except lettuce.

Top 1 bread slice with a lettuce leaf, followed by chicken mixture. Top with the other lettuce leaf and bread slice.

Slice (or not) and enjoy!

Fight it! Starbucks' Chicken BLT Salad Sandwich
Starbucks' Chicken BLT Salad Sandwich

Chicken Salad Anguish...

Here's the thing: We know chicken salad can be trouble. (Hello, MAYO!) And we know that a lunch full of fatty bacon is hardly our best bet. But when two decadent sandwiches are combined into ONE, it can be REALLY hard to resist! Well, stay strong. This premade sandwich from Starbucks is kinda puny -- not worth the 25 grams of fat that come with it. If you're at the 'Bucks, grab a Chicken & Hummus Bistro Box instead: a totally well-rounded pick with 270 calories and 7g fat (PointsPlus® value 6*). And if you want a chicken-salad sandwich crammed with bacon, hit the grocery store and make our swap! You probably already have most of the ingredients, and it's SO EASY to throw together. You'll get a freshly made sandwich with way fewer fat grams -- SCORE!!!
