Looking for a new way to stuff your sandwich? This recipe for Avocado Chicken Salad will blow you away! So much tangy, creamy flavour that will leave you totally satisfied.
With summer in full swing I’m craving cold meals.
I’m pretty standard with my classic green smoothie for breaky so that leaves me with lunch and dinner to figure out.
After the massive success of my Avocado Tuna Salad experiment it’s definitely time to switch it up and try it with chicken. Nothing screams a summertime meal like chicken salad so, once again I’m ditching the mayo and trying my hand with this new twist.
AVOCADO CHICKEN SALAD
To make this dish a little creamier I added a dollop of Greek yogurt to the ripe avocado. Greek yogurt also adds even more protein for that satiation factor.
I squeezed in some fresh lime juice and then some diced celery and red onion to bring the crunch component.
I used my chili lime chicken marinade for this recipe because that is what was in the fridge. 😉
Give the avocado a good mash.
You want it nice and creamy.
Add in the chopped onions and celery.
I like to use red onions for my salad.
Finally, stir in the cooked chicken.
You could also use rotisserie chicken to make this easier!
This could not be easier to come together and when I tasted it?
I had one of those talking out loud moments.
‘This is good!’ came out of my
full mouth. Actually, let’s add a few more oooo’s to that.
It was gooooooood! It even gained the approval of the man of the house. He was a tad leery of it’s appearance but, once he had a bite he promptly popped some bread into the toaster and made himself a sandwich.
That, my friends, is a rousing endorsement.
