Salads: Tasty Avocado Chicken Salad Recipe

Hey everyone, it's Natasha of natashaskitchen.com. Today we're making an,avocado chicken salad that has so much flavor. It's creamy but light with the,avocado and so satisfying. We start with the star ingredient, chicken. I'm using,rotisserie chicken which makes this salad so easy. You can cook the chicken,breast yourself or use the well-drained canned chicken and a pinch. So dice or,shred 2 large chicken breasts and place them into a large mixing bowl. Next, we,add two large ripe avocados. Peel and pit each avocado and slice them into,bite-size pieces then add them to the mixing bowl. Add 1 cup of cooked corn and,I do think freshly cooked corn is the best. It adds a really nice sweet pop of,flavor to the salad. Add 1/4 cup of chopped green onion or chives which,makes this salad so fresh and fragrant. I cooked 6 ounces of bacon until browned,and crispy coarsely chop that up and add it to the salad bowl.,Finally, add two Tbsp of fresh dill and now let's make that easy lemon,dressing. squeeze three Tbsp of juice from one large lemon,,combine that with three Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil one tsp of,salt and 1/8 of a tsp of black pepper. Stir that together until combined,and that's all there is to it. This is one of my favorite dressings. It smells,so good! Drizzle it over your salad and toss everything to combine. I am excited,because this is lunch and I'm hungry! What time is it? Almost 5:00, its a late,lunch, but I can't wait. All that's left to do is the taste test so,that's exactly what we're going to do.,And I also like to serve the salad with eggs hard-boiled eggs because it makes,it just so satisfying. These are optional but nice. There we go, all right,,let's get a sample, a generous sample.,Mm-hmm, that's delicious. The lemon really shines in that dressing,and it makes it so fresh and bright. I love those little salty bites of bacon in,there and then so much avocado with healthy alternative to the creamy,chicken salad you see normally but definitely not lacking in flavor. You can,serve it as a salad, you can make sandwiches, put it in pitas, serve it in,lettuce wraps and it also is really good the next day so it's perfect for work or,school lunch. Yeah this salad is awesome.

Avocado Chicken Salad

Avocado Chicken Salad

all right we're going to make some,avocado chicken salad uh first things,first you'll want to put your raw,chicken breast into a crock pot,you can add about um a half tablespoon,of salt just to give some seasoning,and then we're going to pour some water,in here,so don't dry out you want to just barely,cover the chicken with the water,you don't need to fill it up too full,just enough so it covers the chicken,and then we're going to let it cook on,high for four hours,and once it's done it'll be tender,enough to cut up,start putting together a chicken salad,okay after the,chicken's done cooking in the crock pot,just go ahead and take out however many,chicken breasts you want to use,i put one pound of chicken in the crock,pot so three large chicken breasts,i'm actually going to be using only one,chicken breast to make this,round of chicken salad,so once you take your chicken breast go,ahead,and chop it all up don't want to get it,too fine you want to leave it somewhat,chunky but at the same time,you want the chunks to be rather small,so just be careful when you're chopping,it so it's not too,fine,then we'll add our avocado use,two avocados per chicken breast,so if you're making all three chicken,breasts at once,you're going to want to use six avocados,so once you dug out all the avocado out,it's all mashed up dump it in with the,chicken,now we want to add,just a fourth cup meal,one cup of sweet relish,and then we're adding,a half cup,of chopped pecans,so then we just get all that mixed up,the idea is to have more avocado,than mayo,you want that nice strong avocado flavor,if you use,less than if you only use one,avocado per chicken breast it's not,going to have very strong,flavor of avocado,make sure you use two,all right once we get all that mixed,together good put it in some bread and,have some okay once your chicken salad's,all mixed together use whatever kind of,bread,you want to make a sandwich i actually,like using,tortillas for my chicken salad and make,sort of,like little uh wraps basically,but simply um you can also try um,pretty much whatever kind of bridge you,want,something else to really good is on,croissants i always recommend that as,well it's really tasty that way,just go ahead and put however much you,want and just wrap it up,i have a little chicken salad burrito,but uh there you go um,go ahead and uh leave a comment in the,comment section,if you make the avocado chicken salad,let me know how it turned out how you,like it,um if you made any changes to the recipe,just let me know,see how how it does and if you like it,just hit like and subscribe to the video,and then,we'll see you next time

Avocado Chicken Salad

Avocado Chicken Salad

good evening,uh tonight we're going to make chicken,salad,and our mayo is going to be mashed,avocado so it's going to be,avocado chicken salad using all the,traditional ingredients you would,normally use in a chicken salad,uh we're just going to switch it up a,little bit with the avocado,other than that it's very traditional if,you're watching say hi,hit the like or the heart tell me that,you're here i have everything prepped,for you so i'm going to go through the,ingredients first,and i'll bring this closer so that you,can get a good look,so here's what we've done so far i used,leftover chicken,i cooked four huge chicken breasts on,sunday,and then i put them in the refrigerator,actually in the broth,that i had cooked them in so i seared,them in the skillet,and then i covered them and let them,cook in low sodium chicken broth,and then i put that chicken in the,fridge so i,took a four ounce portion of that,chicken that i'd already cooked,and i shredded it and i just shredded it,with my hands it was,very soft and easy to shred this would,be a great way to use poached,chicken take a chicken breast and put it,in boiling water and let it cook in the,boiling water because it can be very,tender and you want tender chicken,but this is also a good way to use your,leftovers so if you have some leftover,chicken this would be a great way,because you're just going to shred it up,so whatever chicken works i'm using,leftover chicken meal prepped chicken,from monday,i have an apple apples are delicious in,chicken salad,i'm using one small apple just so you,know my grocery store didn't have a lot,of variety in apples right now so,this is a pretty large apple so i gave,my son half for dinner and i used,half of a huge apple and that's my apple,chopped up into small pieces,if you like big chunks of apple if you,like big chunks of chicken salad if you,would prefer your chicken style to be in,chunks then cut it in chunks this is,just the way i like it,i have green onion about,an ounce of green onion and celery,together just a little i used one,let's see here one small like half,celery stalk,and just literally one,um stalk of green onion and that weighed,out to be,a little over an ounce on the scale and,then i chopped it very finely,now we're going to use two ounces of,avocado which i have here,and then i have one tablespoon of light,mayo you could use walden farms,mayonnaise,you could use the hellman's light,italian just remember that you want to,keep,one serving under three grams of fat and,three grams of carbs that's your,condiment for the day,here i only have one tablespoon and the,serving was two so i've only used half,i never use more than i need because,there's no reason to add extra calories,that won't make a difference,you could really do this without the,mayo if you're watching and you'll have,any mayo don't worry it's really not,necessary,so what i'm going to do is i'm going to,mash this avocado,and if i had a masher some of you,probably have like potato masher that,would probably be best but this will do,it doesn't matter,um i did squeeze lemon and lemon is for,the recipe i squeezed this already,on the avocado because while i was,waiting for you i didn't want it to,brown,you could make a double batch of this,recipe and store it for one day,and eat it two days in a row i don't,think i would go any further than that,because after about day two,your avocado even with the lemon is,gonna turn brown,and then it won't necessarily be bad but,it'll be very unappealing because we,know that a cup,avocado will quickly turn the lemon,juice will help to keep it from turning,but after about day two you're probably,good to go,so this is going to be our avocado base,and this is what you would normally,think of when you're making chicken,salad,as your mayonnaise face,so we're going to add in our chicken and,our apples,our celery and our onion you can season,this with a little bit of salt and,pepper,garlic powder and onion powder you all,know me and i can't,digest garlic and onions so i don't add,any extra i've got the green onion in,here that's all i can handle,and now we're going to blend this,together,and depending on your ingredients oops,we lost some along the way,depending on your ingredients if it's,really thick you can just add like a,tablespoon of,chicken broth or a tablespoon of water,we're also going to add a squeeze of,mustard in just a minute,and that's going to give us a little bit,more liquid but honestly it's good to go,right now,i like the flavor that the mustard adds,adds a little bit of a tame which is why,i'm going to add it,but as you can see even without the,mustard,this is where we're at already totally,seems like it's got mayo in it,you would never know you know it,obviously has a tiny bit but it does,it is not dry at all so now i'm going to,add and i'll measure for you i'm not,good at,measuring my mustard because i should,call it just a squeeze,but i think it'll probably be about,a teaspoon yeah like,a teaspoon
