Avocado Chicken Salad

In our house we have two favorites: chicken thighs and avocado. I was really looking for a way to make a Paleo friendly chicken salad to put into lettuce wraps, but all the recipes had mayonnaise in them. I still wanted the creamy texture of chicken salad so I decided to mash-up avocado with chicken and it was a total hit! I could eat this stuff right out of the bowl! This Avocado Chicken Salad is an ultimate summer salad and is so refreshing and delicious! Here is the recipe for the Avocado Chicken Salad we made:

1 whole avocado (Remove pit and dice)
2 chicken thighs (De-boned and chopped)
A squeeze of Lime juice
Garlic (powder or crushed)
1/4 cup Cilantro chopped
1/4 cup Red Onion chopped
Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and serve immediately. We serve this with either iceberg or romaine or butter lettuce leaves or use bell peppers, cucumbers or carrots to dip in it.

My husband took this in his Paleo lunchbox and really enjoyed it! I packed it with lettuce, bell peppers, grapes and Dang brand coconut chips. He says this will be his most requested lunch!

    Stopping by from the Blogging Collective on FB! I wish my hubby loved chicken like I do! congrats on the weight loss! This recipe looks wonderful and delicious

    I made this recipe twice without the chicken. Once I substituted lemon for lime juice and parsley for cilantro. Both were excellent by themselves or over roasted veggies. My kids requested it for an upcoming party!

    Did the Avocado brown in the time it was made& packed before your husband ate it for lunch? I’m always wary to bring pre-fixed lunches with Avocado to work because of that
