  • 2 cups cooked chicken (shredded into large pieces)
  • 2 avocados (medium, diced)

  • 2 tablespoons mayo (or light mayo)

It turned out well. I also added almonds for a little more crunch. Could be served on toast or in a bed of lettuce.

This is honestly my favorite recipe ever!!! I make it at least once a month and never get tired of it. Using rotisserie chicken really cuts down on the time and adds a great flavor :)

I added pesto to the mayo. I put on thin sandwich buns with tomatoes and spinach. Turned out great!!

Delicious!!! Had Costco's very flavorful roasted chicken and shredded the breast meat for this salad. I added garlic salt and drizzled more lime juice to amp up the flavor. Served in a lettuce wrap with a side of sweet mango slices. This recipe is a keeper

Made it just as the instructions said, and used rotisserie chicken. We ate inside warmed corn tortillas, but it was also good without any bread. It was delish, and easy. I will definitely make again.

This is a great salad. I didn't change a thing and we loved it. Will make it again often. Kalyn's Kitchen has many good recipes.

Love the flavor, used a vegannaise mayonnaise and added a little ground white pepper for a bit of kick. I like to dice and add the avocado on a per-serving basis, to keep them fresh. Great recipe for lunch or snack!
