Cover top side with avocado mixture. Cook until the edges turn white, about 1 1/2 minutes and then in one quick motion, flip over and cook for another 2 minutes or until done.
  7. Spread one side of flat bread with avocado mixture, add chicken, tomatoes and a sprinkle of lime juice, fold over bread and enjoy. Serve hot.
