If you love chicken salad and avocados you will go crazy for these AVOCADO CHICKEN SALAD WRAPS! They make a healthy and delicious lunch that I can’t get enough of.
So, I’ve been really debating sharing this recipe with you guys. Not because they don’t taste good (they’re delicious!) but because they’re sooo simple, the pictures are not super exciting, and I wasn’t sure if anyone would be interested. But then I thought of all my other simple recipes that you guys love, like this tomato avocado melt, and decided to share it. Chicken salad is a total classic, right? And this recipe has a little healthy flare that adds even more flavor.
The thing is, this is the type of meal I eat all the time. So whether or not it turns into a TBFS fan favorite, this blog is a compilation of my “real-life” recipes. Recipes that I make regularly and recipes that my family loves.
I never leave a grocery shopping trip to Costco without coming home with a Rotisserie chicken. They’re so fresh and delicious. I’ll usually use some of it, warm, for dinner that night, and the rest I will de-bone and use for meals later in the week. I’ll make homemade chicken broth with the bones, and freeze it for chicken noodle soup another day, These baked creamy chicken taquitos are a favorite with my family. I’ll also often make a big batch of avocado chicken salad with it. My kids love it on top of pretzel rolls, and I love to eat it for lunch inside lettuce wraps. The cold lettuce gives it a nice, fresh crunch, and I love the flavors of the chicken salad filling. You could also serve it as a sandwich, or eat it with whole wheat crackers.
