Lime Chicken Avocado Bruschetta

Friday, July 3, 2020
I just love open-faced sandwiches like this Lime Chicken Avocado Bruschetta

This is a great appetizer or light meal, perfect in warmer weather, and just shouts with tropical flavors.

You can use any kind of chicken you prefer lime, lemon, cajun, and even leftover my bundt pan rotisserie chicken.

During the hotter months, this is just the right brunch and perfect appetizers for serving your family and friends.

It's always a huge hit whenever I make this.

If you're not a fan of avocado, either omit it or add some pineapple, mango, or another fruit even chopped red grapes go great with chicken!

There are many other suggestions below to mix and match this little summer sandwich treat for you to make several options.

Just scroll read my tips and options or go straight to the recipe printable card below and get started on this delightful bruschetta!

Lime Chicken

I love the fresh taste of lime or lemon on chicken.

It brings a delicious citrus flavor to this perfect summer open-faced topped sandwich.

You can use any kind of seasoned chicken you like, this is just one that goes perfectly with
the avocado.

Just saute the chicken or use leftover rotisserie chicken, or any other flavored cooked chicken will work great too.

  • Use thickly sliced bread at least 2 inches in thickness
  • Always pick the best, not overripe avocado, and when buying ones that are firm but you can still gently squeeze.
  • Cut out any brown bits before using or bruised pieces
  • You can use granulated garlic if you don't have fresh garlic
  • If you preferred mashed avocado use a potato masher or fork to mash down
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Use an Everything Bagel toasted instead of bread or Sourdough bread

How To Cut An Avocado

  1. Place a ripe avocado on a cutting board.
  2. Cut it lengthwise around the seed.
  3. Move the halves in your hands, twisting gently, and separate the two them.
  4. Place the avocado in a clean paper towel.
  5. Hold securely in your hand, and then carefully tap the back edge of a pointed knife into the pit.
  6. Twist and lift straight up to remove.
  7. I use a tablespoon to release the pit.
  8. Use a large spoon to scoop the delicious avocado out of its skin.
