Avocado Chicken Salad

Avocado Chicken Salad

Makes 3-4 sandwiches, or 6-8 "sliders"

Avocado is super tasty and heart-healthy.  After snapping the photo above, I realized crushed red pepper would have given this chicken salad the extra kick it needs, so be sure to add it!
Slightly adapted from: Key Ingredient

2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1 avocado
2 T. mayo
1/4 onion, diced
1/8 c. diced celery
1/2 lime, juiced
Salt & pepper
Crushed red pepper
Sliced provolone cheese, if desired

If chicken is not already cooked, poach in water until no longer pink.  Shred with two forks.

Meanwhile, mash avocado in a large bowl.  Stir in mayo, onion, celery, lime juice, and chicken.  Season with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper.

Serve on sandwich buns, with provolone cheese, if desired.
