The other day I roasted a chicken.

It’s not an uncommon occurrence, since one whole roasted chicken can fill a myriad of needs, from chicken stock to lunch leftovers, to framing up a few different dinners through out the week (roast chicken, fajitas, chicken noodle casserole, etc.).

Whole roaster chickens are also super inexpensive, with a four-pound bird averaging between six and ten dollars, depending on the brand, store, whether you choose organic, or if it’s from a local farmer.

That’s a lot of bang for your buck.

I ended up with a little over a cup’s worth of cubed white and dark meat after using up the rest for dinner, lunches, and as the base for my chicken stock.

I also happened to have a few ripe avocados on the counter, that surely in a day would be beyond ripe (or an hour, you know how avocados are, those shifty buggers).

So, I decided to whip up a little avocado chicken salad.

It was as easy as tossing a few fresh ingredients in a small mixing bowl, folding them together gently with a rubber spatula and then enjoying the avocado chicken salad on its own, or sandwiched between two soft pieces of bread.

This recipe made enough for me to enjoy on a sandwich, as well as had enough for leftovers in my daughter’s lunchbox the next day AND for one more on-the-go dinner during a busy weeknight evening.

Yum! I love simple things that taste great.

Avocado Chicken Salad

Yield: 2 cups
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

This simple recipe is chock full of flavor with generous chunks of ripe avocado, and savory cubed roast chicken.

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocado, cubed.
  • 1 cup cubed cooked chicken
  • 1/8 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  1. Whisk the mayonnaise, lime juice, onions, salt and pepper together in a mixing bowl.
  2. Gently fold in the avocado and chicken until all the pieces are coated.

Notes

The avocado in any leftover avocado chicken salad may brown a little (the lime juice should help prevent that). If it does, the flavor and freshness won't be affected; it's merely an aesthetic change.
