Avocado Chicken Salad

Posting again, had a great idea to use up the turkey leftovers. Of course since I got home late all the turkey was gone so I went back to the original plan - chicken.  I have this all made up for tomorrow nights meal and am planning on serving it on a bed of spinach

Avocado Chicken Salad

4 cooked chicken breasts (I ripped apart a rotisserie chicken)
2 ripe avocados
1 stalk of celery
1/2 cup dried cherries or cranberries
1/4 cup avocado oil or mayo
2 tbspn lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

Dice chicken and avocado into bite size pieces and chop celery into a very small dice.  Combine all ingredients and stir until well mixed but avocado still is somewhat chunky.  Either serve immediately or refrigerate for later.  Serve in a lettuce wrap, over spinach or naked.


  1. Looks good to me! Although, if you wait too long won't the avacados turn brown? That's happened to me on numerous occasions.

  2. I made this one night, and ate it the next two evenings and it was fine. I think the lemon juice helps this along with storing in an airtight container. Two days is probably all you will get though. It was fantastic!
