This avocado chicken salad is so healthy and delicious! It uses avocado instead of mayo and tastes amazing!
Did you know that mashed avocado makes an excellent mayo substitute for salads? Commercial mayo is so full of chemicals and preservatives, so I’m always glad to be able to use something else in it’s place :) Avocado is all natural and super healthy, what a welcome substitute for mayo in this creamy chicken salad!
This avocado chicken salad is so yummy, I actually prefer it to the regular chicken salad! I also have a recipe for avocado tuna salad that uses the exact same method!
Making this avocado chicken salad is super easy and uses just 5 simple ingredients: chicken, eggs, onion, avocado and lime. I always make it with leftover Rotisserie chicken – that’s a perfect way to stretch that chicken into another healthy meal! And don’t throw out those chicken bones – I can a perfect recipe for rich delicious chicken stock a.k.a. bone broth (see Instant Pot chicken bone broth or Slow Cooker bone broth).
To make this chicken avocado salad, just mash the avocado with a fork, mix in some freshly squeezed lime juice, then add chopped cooked chicken, chopped hardboiled eggs and chopped onion. Mix everything to combine and add salt and pepper to taste. Delicious! If you’d like an even creamier chicken salad, feel free to add more avocados :)
If you often have a hard time peeling your hard-boiled eggs, I used to have the same problem until I started cooking eggs in the Instant Pot! For some mysterious reason, Instant Pot hardboiled eggs always peel perfectly and effortlessly :)
This avocado chicken salad is super filling – this is not some little side salad, this is the real main dish! You can serve it on its own, with some side dishes, on a bun to make a chicken salad sandwich or on large lettuce leaves to make lettuce wraps!
If you are on a keto or other type of low-carb diet, you can still have your chicken salad sandwich! Just use my easy recipe for keto bread! This amazing keto bread actually tastes like real bread – this is a truly life-changing recipe for anyone on a keto diet and a MUST TRY!
