Healthy Avocado Chicken Salad (No Mayo)

This Healthy Avocado Chicken Salad is made with no mayo and is a flavorful, satisfying salad that is a crowd-pleaser!


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts (2 cups chopped cooked chicken)
  • handful of fresh parsley and a few sprigs fresh thyme, optional
  • 1 1/2 avocados, mashed (1 cup mashed)
  • 1 celery, diced
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dillweed
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. First, poach your chicken. Season the breasts with salt and pepper and place them in a medium pot. Cover them with water and add the handful of fresh parsley and thyme sprigs to the water. Bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to low and cover. Cook until the chicken is firm to the touch and cooked through, about 10-15 minutes. Remove the chicken from the water and allow to cool. Chop the chicken; you should have 2 cups chopped chicken.
  2. Put your chopped chicken in a medium bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Serve on bread, on top of greens, or in a wrap. Enjoy!
