Avocado Chicken Salad

Avocado Chicken Salad

 

I saw several different recipes floating around on good ol' pinterest  and I was inspired by all of them and decided to create my own recipe. This Avocado chicken salad has become a staple for me, sooo good. I decided to make it for my Bachelor viewing party the other night because it's a hit, it's super easy, and it's healthy! Double or triple the recipe if you're serving more than 4 people. You can find the rest of my Bachelor Viewing Party menu HERE!

This recipe is a great non-dairy option to the greasy/fatty chicken salad recipes out there! A clean option for your belly and fits in the Nutrition Plan I follow. ;)

{Recipe}

 

ingredients:

-2-3 Organic Chicken Breasts, cook and then shred *The short cut, pull meat from an organic rotisserie chicken

-1 Ripe Avocado

-1/2 Onion, chopped

-Handful of chopped Cilantro, to your own preference. *leave a little for garnish

-Juice of 1 lime

-A pinch or two of Himalayan Pink Salt

*You can also add ground pepper, but I love the salty citrus taste!

directions:

-Shred cooked organic chicken breast (or pull/shred from a rotisserie chicken) and place in a bowl

-Add Avocado to the bowl and begin to mash around with the chicken

-Add chopped onions and cilantro, mashing these ingredients into the chicken and avocado

-Squeeze lime juice and sprinkle pink salt and mash all ingredients together mixing all flavors well

-Taste to make sure it's the flavor you're going for

-Garnish with some cilantro on top

*I serve my Avocado Chicken Salad as is, but I have placed warmed Brown Rice Tortillas on the side so that my guests can make wraps- it's divine!

This recipe is great for a get together, but I also love to keep some of this whipped up in my fridge for a quick go to meal!
