6-Ingredient Avocado Chicken Salad – Easy, Paleo-Friendly Recipe

By Jess

5 from 3 ratings

A few weeks ago, if you had told me that I could make a chicken salad from scratch with only six ingredients, and it would end up not just tasting amazing, but satisfying as well, I never would have believed you. But that’s exactly what you’re getting with this 6-ingredient avocado chicken salad recipe. The highlight is the juicy chicken with rich, creamy avocado—that combo’s hard to beat. But there’s also some great extras to pair with it such as celery, cilantro, and of course your paleo mayonnaise as dressing. The tanginess of the twist of lime juice at the end really brings it all together. This recipe is all about making the ingredients shine, so keep it simple. You won’t be disappointed.
