Avocado Chicken Salad

Avocado Chicken Salad, such a delicious and simple summer meal!

Warm summer days means I don’t want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen, especially over a warm stove. We grill up a bunch of chicken breasts, have that for dinner one night and then have extra ready to make a big bowl of this chicken salad.

Avocados are such a great source of deliciousness and combined with chicken, cilantro and lime, it makes a wonderful fresh and summery tasting sandwich topping.

Serve with a side of sliced veggies and a dessert of Raspberry Semifreddo, you’ve got the makings of a perfect summer evening!


Avocado Chicken Salad

4 boneless chicken breast, cooked & diced
½ medium onion, diced
1 avocado, diced
½ lime, juiced
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, diced
½ teaspoon sea salt

Mix all ingredients. Serve on bread or lettuce leaves.


If you would like to have easy meals to serve to your family this summer along with tempting simple desserts to top off your delicious dinner, or to serve as an afternoon treat on its’ own, or even when hosting an impromptu get together, these recipe books have you covered!

    Made this last night for dinner! It was a hit, even with 7 and 10 year old BOYS! I did tweak the recipe quite a bit, and ended up adding TWO LARGE avocadoes to get it even close to avocado-y as needed. it was amazing. A keeper. Thanks!
