Creamy Avocado Chicken Salad

Here are the ingredients you will need:

  • 2 cans of chicken breast in water OR 1 pound of baked chicken, shredded

  • 2 medium pickles, chopped fine
  • 4-5 celery stalks, chopped fine
  • 1 avocado, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon of seasoning salt
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Chicken Salad Sandwich

1. Begin by breaking up your chicken into shreds. If you are using canned chicken, be sure to drain it well first.
2. Add the mayonnaise and stir well.
3. Add your chopped pickles and celery, continuing to stir well as you do.
4. Taste. Add the seasoning salt and salt and pepper as needed or as your tastes allow.
5. Cut ½ of the avocado into cubes. Stir in gently to the mixture so the cubes remain chunky.
6. Reserve the second half of the avocado to slice and top the sandwich with. We use it in place of a slice of cheese to get tons of flavor and some healthy fats.

To serve your creamy avocado chicken salad, toast two pieces of bread and top them with the mixture. Add a slice of the reserved avocado. Cut in half and enjoy!

As you can see, this is an easy and inexpensive lunch option. Prepare it ahead of time for a quick lunch throughout the week.
