Avocado Chicken Salad
This avocado chicken salad is perfect for avocado lovers! Serve this on a whole wheat bun or wrap for a lighter option.
Servings 4 servings
- 2 cups chicken , cooked and chopped
- 1 large avocado
- 3 tablespoons mayo (use more as needed)
- 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- salt and pepper , to taste
In a large bowl, add the chicken, mayo, lime juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
Cut the avocado in half and dice into small pieces. Scoop the avocado out into the bowl and stir all of the ingredients together until it has reached your desired consistency.
Taste and adjust seasonings to your preference.
Serve and enjoy!
I prefer to mix everything together very well. The more you mix, the creamier the avocado will be in this chicken salad.
To cook the chicken: I always make my chicken a little ahead of time and season it with a little salt, pepper, and garlic powder, cook it in a skillet, then chop it up. I'm sure some chopped rotisserie chicken would work well too.
To store: This avocado chicken salad will last up to 3 days if stored in the fridge in an airtight container. Note that the avocado will oxidize (turn brown) over time. That's normal and won't affect the flavor.
