Ingredients

12 slices multi-grain bread
5 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
110 g iceberg lettuce, finely shredded
110 g cooked chicken breasts, skin removed, sliced
4 slices prosciutto, about 50 g in total, cut into strips pepper to taste
1 avocado
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1 orange, peeled and chopped
1 bunch arugula or watercress, tough stalks discarded
1⁄3 cup alfalfa sprouts
2 teaspoons pumpkin seeds, toasted in a frying pan for 2 minutes without oil

Directions

  1. Spread 4 slices of bread with half of the mayonnaise. Divide the shredded lettuce among the slices, then add the sliced chicken breasts.
  2. Heat a nonstick frying pan and dry-fry the strips of prosciutto for 1–2 minutes or until crisp and curly. Pile on top of the chicken and season with pepper. Spread the remaining mayonnaise on another 4 slices of bread and put these, mayonnaise-side down, on the chicken and prosciutto.
  3. Mash the avocado flesh with the lime juice. Divide among the sandwiches, spooning onto the uppermost layer of bread and spreading out roughly. Top with the chopped orange, arugula, alfalfa sprouts and pumpkin seeds. Place the final slices of bread on top. Press down gently, then cut each sandwich in half or into quarters before serving.

Variation: For fruity chicken club sandwiches, replace the top deck of avocado, orange, arugula, alfalfa sprouts and pumpkin seeds on each sandwich with 1 tablespoon crunchy peanut butter, ½ sliced banana sprinkled with a little lemon juice, 2 fresh dates, skinned and chopped, and 1 teaspoon chopped parsley.
