I have always been a huge advocate of meal prepping for so many reasons, but mostly because it simply makes life that much easier. I often use Sunday’s as a day to prepare foods that I can pick off of, or snack on, throughout the week, when I have less time and more going on. It’s easy to make things that you can eat in different varieties, and at different times of the day, so you don’t have to spend time making it during the week, or turn to quick, but unhealthy meals or junk foods to snack on. This past Sunday, I decided to make avocado chicken salad, something simple enough to switch up the way its prepared later on in the week.
A lot of the things I make, I make without following a recipe, and eyeball most of the ingredients I use. This recipe is something I threw together using ingredients I had already in the fridge, and can be made in a variety of ways, but I chose to keep it simple.
For this recipe, I used:
1 Rotisserie Chicken, medium
1/2 1 large Avocado
1 Tbs. Mayonnaise (I used Vegannaise as a substitute)
1 tsp. Yellow Mustard
1 Tbs. Dill Relish
2 Tbs. Sweet Relish
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
2 tsp. Onion Powder
Salt and pepper to taste
To start, disassemble the rotisserie chicken by shredding and chopping it into small pieces. Add it into a mixing bowl, then dice the avocado and add to the chicken. Add the remaining ingredients, until everything is in the bowl and ready to be blended.
Begin mixing and folding the ingredients until thoroughly combined. Make sure not to mix too hard, or the avocado will become mush, but not too soft, or you won’t get the added creaminess from the avocado. You want to see a smooth, even consistency, with smaller pieces of the avocados thrown in.
Viola! There you have easy Avocado Chicken Salad! Now, there are many different ways to prepare this as a meal, but when I am looking for something quick, I make a piece of Gluten Free Toast, add a good amount of the salad onto the toast, and top it with freshly sliced tomatoes:
It also pairs well with tortilla chips or on celery as a snack, or turn it into a wrap and add some turkey bacon, tomatoes, and red onion for extra veggies! This recipe is one of my favorites because of its simplicity, and it tastes SO good! Thanks for keeping up with me and my good mood food!! Stay tuned for some homemade Pho, a Vietnamese soup for people with colorful palettes!
