I have a lot of recipes here on the blog. A lot of really old ones that are SO good as well. I decided that instead of bringing all new recipes, I was going to give the old ones a facelift and bring them back to life. I use my website all of the time for our favorite recipes. And this recipe is one of my go-to recipes. Avocado chicken salad is one of my favorite things to make for lunch. I stack it on whole wheat bread with romaine lettuce, tomato, and top it with sprouts and micro kale.

I made this recipe in the very beginning of the blog because my oldest son loves chicken salad sandwiches, especially to take in his lunch for school. I decided to jazz it up a bit and add avocado and it has become one of our favorites and a lunchtime staple.

How do you make avocado chicken salad?

  • Start by using 2 cups of cooked and diced chicken. Rotisserie Chicken or even canned chicken works great.
  • Add in diced avocado, mayonnaise, chopped cilantro, lime juice, and salt and pepper. Mix together.
  • Use it to make a sandwich, or serve with tortilla chips.

What can I substitute mayonnaise with?

  • Greek Yogurt
  • Hummus
  • Pesto
  • Nut Butter
  • Avocado Chicken Salad between two slices of bread.

 

Tips for picking out the perfect avocados:

  • Squeeze the avocado. Hold it in the palm of your hand and gently squeeze. A ripe avocado should yield to firm, gentle pressure, but shouldn’t feel overly soft or mushy.
  • You can also check under the stem. Peel back the small stem or cap at the top of the avocado. If it comes away easily, and you find green underneath, it is ripe and ready to go.
