Preparing our frozen Grilled Chicken Sandwich is as easy as can be. After about a minute in the microwave (time may vary depending on your appliance), you can dig into this hot and hearty sandwich. Our healthy recipe developers at The Leaf put their own tasty spin on this top-rated Nutrisystem menu item. The name of this recipe doesn’t lie; our Grilled Chicken Sandwich gets loaded with melty cheese, rich avocado, crispy greens and a two-ingredient, homemade creamy mustard sauce. For a beefy twist, these toppings would even be delicious on top of a Nutrisystem Hamburger!

To make this healthy sandwich, get started by preparing our Grilled Chicken Sandwich according to the package’s directions. Once you remove it from the microwave, immediately place half of a slice of reduced fat Swiss cheese on the chicken while it’s hot. This will allow the cheese to melt a bit. In a small bowl, mix together your homemade sauce by combining a quarter teaspoon each of Dijon mustard and light mayonnaise. Spread the sauce on one side of the bun. Spread one tablespoon of avocado onto the other side of the bun. Top the chicken with a handful of mixed greens and place it inside the bun before digging in.

The Leaf Pro Tip: Just because we loaded our sandwich with Swiss cheese, avocado and mixed greens, that doesn’t mean you have too! Make this meal your own creation by swapping in your favorite low-fat cheese, such as sharp cheddar, provolone, feta or smoked Gouda. Not a fan of Dijon mustard? Leave it out! You can also substitute the non-starchy vegetables that you enjoy most, such as sliced tomatoes, onions, peppers, sprouts or shredded purple cabbage for a high fiber boost. Refer to the handy Nutrisystem Grocery Guide if you need a little cooking inspiration.
