How to Make Healthy Avocado Chicken Salad
I don’t add apples or grapes in there, but you certainly can if that’s your thing. No hurt feelings here.
Also, if there ever was a time to poach your chicken, it would be here. It lends the perfect texture for chicken salad. BUT, I also understand sometimes you have leftover chicken and would like to use it up. This Healthy Avocado Chicken Salad will absolutely work with leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken. No problemo.
The question I know you’re wondering:
Does this Healthy Avocado Chicken Salad turn brown?
It does have lemon juice, which prevents it somewhat, but nonetheless this won’t keep that long. On day two, I’m able to scrape the brown off of the top and it’s nice and green underneath. By the third day, it’s not as appealing. My advice is to eat this up in 1-2 days max.
That shouldn’t be a problem because this is seriously good. I hope you make it soon!
