Easy Chicken, Mushroom, and Avocado Sandwich on Skillet-Toasted Bread – A Gluten-Free Recipe

Sometimes healthy recipes require a bunch of weird ingredients you can’t find at your local grocery store. That’s not the case when you prepare this easy chicken, mushroom, and avocado sandwich on skillet-toasted bread. It tastes like something you’d buy from a specialty sandwich shop, minus the gluten. I don’t know about you, but I desperately missed eating sandwiches made by other people when my doctor first told me to eliminate wheat from my diet.

Can you make this easy chicken, mushroom, and avocado sandwich without gluten-free bread? Yeah, probably…but I haven’t tried it. Gluten-free bread has a different texture than wheat bread, so I’m not sure what will happen if you attempt to toast it in the skillet. If you make this recipe with regular bread, please come back and let me know how it goes.

FYI: I use Canyon Bakehouse gluten-free bread, and there’s a printable coupon for it here.

I often make a vegan version of this easy chicken sandwich on skillet-toasted bread. I’ll post that recipe soon, but let’s dive into the chicken sandwich preparation process now.

Drizzle a skillet with olive oil, then add mushrooms and onions. Sprinkle with garlic powder.

Heat on medium-high for 5 to 7 minutes.

mushrooms and onions

Brush olive oil on the top of 2 slices of bread, then sprinkle each piece with garlic powder.

Place bread in a skillet, olive-oil side down, and heat over medium-high heat for 3 to 7 minutes depending on your desired level of toastiness. I like crunchtastic sandwiches, so I leave mine in the skillet for 6 or 7 minutes.

Remove bread from the skillet and place it on a plate. Top one slice of bread with avocado slices, mushrooms, onions, and chicken.

Place the other slice of bread on top unless you want to make two open-faced sandwiches instead of one traditional sandwich.

I feel like you guys probably know how to assemble a sandwich, but I wanted to explain the process just in case. I know some younger readers follow my blog (hello there, friends of my daughter!).

When you’re done making this easy chicken sandwich on skillet-toasted bread, it will look something like this:

Gently press the top piece of bread down so the onions don’t fall off of the sandwich.
