I know you clicked on this recipe because you probably love avocados as much as I do!  This is such a yummy lunch! I’m allergic to eggs so I can’t have normal chicken salad so this avocado chicken salad is a great alternative.  

I get so bored with sandwiches and this is a good meal I like to eat after a workout because of all the protein.  I’m sure I’ll make it a lot with the kids home for the summer.

Making shredded chicken is so easy.  I usually make a huge batch at a time and freeze what I don’t use.  Then I can pull it out to make enchiladas, tacos, quesadillas, soup and now avocado chicken salad.  It’s a huge time saver when you’re running a million different directions on a school night.

Ingredients for Chicken and Avocado Salad

Chicken– Chicken breasts is great for this. Rotisserie chicken works great for this recipe too and saves a lot of time.

Avocados– Make sure these are fresh, but not hard.

Onions– white or red onions works for this recipe and make sure they are finely chopped.

Lime juice

Garlic powder

Salt and black pepper to taste

Pita bread– You don’t have to use pita bread. You can simply put this chicken salad recipe on toast or even a lettuce wrap to make it low carb.
