Costco rotisserie chicken saves the day!

This idea occurred to me one day when I had surprise guests over and wanted to make a quick lunch. All I had in the fridge was a Costco rotisserie chicken and some ripe avocados on the counter. I managed to find some cilantro and then made some quick and simple chicken salad sandwiches! They were SO TASTY, and I think everyone was surprised to hear this chicken salad had just three main ingredients.

So today, I’m excited to share this delicious idea with you as a fun and easy meal to make for your family.

Low Carb Avocado Chicken Salad

This is seriously so EASY to throw together and so versatile!

Chicken salad is a favorite of mine! I love that this recipe offers a basic foundation – leave the salad as is or change it up a bit by adding red onion, walnuts for a yummy crunchy texture, garlic powder, or even a few tablespoons of Greek yogurt. What do you like in your chicken salad?

Hip Tip: Know the secret for selecting the perfectly ripe avocado? When squeezed If the avocado yields to firm gentle pressure you know it’s ripe and ready-to-eat. However, if it feels super mushy to the touch, it’s over-ripe.

    I know that avacado s brown quickly does anyone know if I can keep it over night?

    • Cheyanne

      I’m not sure how long it lasts but I’ve deffinitly seen a few like this recipe that put a little bit of lime juice in it. I’m sure that would at keep it from Browning for a little bit.

    • Pam

      Absolutely. Place the nut from the avocado in the mixer to store. It makes a big difference!

    • Titan Tyler

      Place the seed in the middle of the salad. Take plastic wrap and push it down on top of the salad,not from bowl side to bowl side, but like down on top of the salad. It keeps the air out and keeps them from browning so fast

    • Inez summerall

      For the saving of half avacado put onion in a container with avocado.It works.I do it all the time.

  3. Jo Auer

    I am one of unlucky ones that have taste buds that do not recognize cilantro as yummy. What is a good substitute for cilantro? Thanks.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Chopped green onion?

  4. Cissy pope

    To keep anything from browning with avacodo in it after you are finished making it use the avacodo seed to just set in top and it will keep it looking fresh for days when covered.

  5. Vinitha

    Cut avocado with a steel knife…..won’t brown…

  6. paula

    I have seen on a site.. put onion over the top of the avocado, (slice and put the largest outside layer over the avocado) I do it, It works even if you have a little darkness…..it does not change the taste…it cost to much to throw away.) I would think that adding a little lemon juice to this salad mix would save the color.

  7. SALLIE

    How many sandwiches will this recipe make.?

    • Tashauna

      I’m hoping at least two, my daughter and I are going to have this for lunch today.
