Avocado Chicken Salad Best Of Avocado Chicken Salad Recipe

Avocado Chicken Salad- Take chicken salad to a fresh level with the addition of avocado. This naturally creamy chicken and avocado salad is healthy and contains no mayo or sour cream.

Since I tried avocado in a grilled chicken sandwich, I cannot have chicken without avocado. The creamy avocado compliments chicken so well and the addition of cilantro and lime allow it to be a mix to die for. This creamy salad is excellent in sandwiches, wraps, or with an area of vegetables if you should be on a diet.

I’ve added this salad to my healthy lunch rotation since the rotisserie chicken breasts are lean and a good source of protein, the avocado is packed packed with nutrition and because no mayo or cream is added, you can take pleasure in the salad guilt-free.
Causeing the fresh and flavorful salad is as simple as combining avocado, shredded chicken, roasted corn and red onion. You can also add minced green onion, tomatoes, cucumber, or diced bacon. For the herbs, we used cilantro but dill or parsley also work very well too!

We’re eating this healthy chicken salad for lunch all summer long and I bet you will too! AVOCADO CHICKEN SALAD skips the heavy dressing and only creamy, dreamy avocados! This recipe is quick, simple, and packs in so much flavor from the lime and cilantro.

I am a complete sucker for a simple lunch.

You see, we homeschool, meaning my children are here all day long every day.

That will be nice and all, aside from that it entails that I have to feed them. Three meals a day. Every day. Forever and ever amen. #sendhelp

I get burnt on cooking, so through the week they’re by themselves for breakfast and I keep lunch as simple as possible.
Enter this avocado chicken salad recipe!

Oahu is the perfect quick lunch, especially on a hot summer day.

We love how creamy the avocado gets, the vibrant color of the salad, and addition of lime and cilantro to brighten things up.
