Whenever I poll the audience on Instagram of Facebook  asking what you want me to post, LUNCH recipes always get many votes. Today’s Avocado Chicken Salad is something that I’ve made to share with the team at Brian’s office and I make it in a batch over the weekend to simplify lunch time during the week.

Avocado Chicken Salad Tips

  • You can use leftover rotisserie chicken, canned chicken, or leftover chicken. My favorite chicken to use for this recipe is this Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken. So simple!
  • The method for this recipe is easy – put all the ingredients in a bowl then mix to combine and serve on a bed of greens or your favorite bread or crackers.
  • I realize grapes in chicken salad can be a polarizing topic, so if they aren’t your thing…feel free to leave them out!
