Avocado Chicken Salad

I love a good chicken salad. I'm not fond of the kind with nuts and grapes, but I'm always looking for different varieties. I came across a recipe for Avocado Chicken Salad and wanted to try it. I decided to just experiment with my own recipe and it turned out very tasty!

First, boil 1 lb. of chicken and cut into pieces or shred.  It depends on how chunky you like your chicken salad.


I sprinkled plenty of salt, pepper, and garlic powder over the chicken.


Dice up a desired amount of red onion.


Pick out a ripened avocado...


...cut in half and then slice diagonally to make squares.  This makes it easier to scoop out.


Add the onion and avocado to the chicken with desired amount of sour cream.  It depends on how creamy you want it.


Mix everything together until the avocado is nice and mashed.  You can always mash the avocado separately and then add to the chicken.

Finally, serve in rolls, toast, or over crackers!


Chicken salad is not an exact recipe.  There's no right or wrong way to it.  Add or take away ingredients to fit your own tastes.

Avocado Chicken Salad
1 lb. chicken, cooked and diced or shredded
1/2 red onion, finely diced
1 ripened avocado, diced
1/2 cup sour cream
salt, pepper, and garlic powder
Rolls

  7. It's genuinely very difficult in this busy life to listen news on Television, therefore I simply use world wide web for that reason, and take the most up-to-date information.
