Image of Pulled Orange Chicken Avocado Toasts


1Chicken Breast (boneless and skinless)
2 cupsChicken Stock (low sodium)
1Orange, juice & zest (about 6 tablespoons of juice)
2 clovesGarlic, smashed
1 tbspHoney
1 tbspButter (optional)
1/2Avocado, thinly sliced
2 PiecesWhole Grain Bread or Flatbread (recipe below)
Fennel Yogurt Flatbread
1/2 cupPlain Yogurt
3/4 cupSpelt Flour (or substitute with any flour)
1 tspToasted Fennel Seeds, lightly crushed
1/2 tspBaking Powder (don't add if using self-raising flour)
1/4 tspSea Salt


  1. Place the chicken, stock, orange juice and zest and garlic in a small sauce pot. The liquid should cover the chicken by about an inch.
  2. Over medium heat, bring liquid up to a simmer, reduce heat to medium low and poach chicken for about 15 minutes or until the thickest part of the chicken reads 165 degrees F on a cooking thermometer.
  3. Once the chicken is fully cooked, remove from the pot and set aside on a plate. Once cool enough to handle, use two forks to shred the chicken into smaller pieces.
  4. Turn the heat up to medium, add the honey and butter to the pot and simmer until the liquid reduces by half. Remove from the heat, skim off any foam and add the shredded chicken back to the reduce sauce.
  5. Top a toasted piece of whole grain bread with avocado slices and some of the shredded chicken and serve. Or use shredded chicken to top a salad or any of your favorite recipes.
  6. Flatbread: To make your own flatbread, add the yogurt, flour, fennel seeds, baking powder and salt into a bowl and mix until combined. Turn out onto a clean cutting board and knead by hand until it resembles a smooth ball of dough.
  7. Divide into 4 pieces, sprinkle with flour, roll out with a pin until about 1/8 inch thick. Cook over a grill or pan about 2 minutes per side.


  • Cancer and its treatment weaken your immune system, so your body isn't as effective at fighting off bacteria that can cause food poisoning.
  • Remember to follow food safety rules when cooking chicken. Do not rinse raw poultry or meat as it can spread bacteria around your kitchen. Prepare your poultry and meat on a cutting board seperate from other foods. And always cook chicken to an internal temperature of 185 F (85 C) for a whole chicken, or 165 F (74 C) for pieces or chicken burgers. Make sure the juices run clear. Use a food thermometer to be absolutely sure meat is fully cooked.
  • How long does chicken keep? Cooked chicken should be eaten within 3 or 4 days when stored in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer. Most raw chicken should be cooked within 2 or 3 days. Ground chicken should be used right away; it should only be kept for 1 or 2 days at the most.
