Super Bowl Sunday is approaching quickly. If you’re throwing a Super Bowl party and don’t know what to make, try this recipe for grilled chicken nachos.

These nachos are easy to make, yet they are healthier than other snacks like chicken wings. For example, one serving of these grilled chicken nachos contains about 56 mg of sodium. If you were to eat the same amount of chicken wings, you would be consuming 511 mg of sodium. To put things in perspective, the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for sodium is no more than 2,300 mg per day for healthy adults, making this a smart choice for a snack.

 

GRILLED CHICKEN NACHOS
Total time: 25 minutes
Servings: 6
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
1 medium onion, diced
1 medium tomato, diced
1 bag (11 ounces) tortilla chips
1 avocado, diced
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 cups shredded cheese

Directions:
In a medium-sized frying pan, cook the chicken in olive oil and season with lemon pepper. When cool, shred the chicken into smaller pieces.

Next, dice the onion, tomato and avocado. In a medium-sized frying pan, sautee the onions until they are golden brown, then add the diced tomatoes.

For the final presentation, arrange chips onto a platter and top with the sauteed onion and tomato, shredded chicken, diced avocado, lime juice and shredded cheese.
