Avocado Chicken Salad

This Avocado Chicken Salad Sandwich is a quick and easy avocado recipe that’s perfect for a healthy, fast lunch.

Does anyone ever really make complicated, complete lunches? I know I don’t. Between work and kids, I just don’t have the time to stop in the middle of the day to prepare a full meal and I must admit that sometimes I even have difficulty pulling together something healthy in a pinch. I mean, isn’t it so much easier to just grab something from a drive-through or join the kids in their mac and cheese and hot dogs?

If you love avocado, you are going to LOVE this easy avocado recipe.

Of course, none of those options are healthy, even if they are quick. Salads are often a go-to but sometimes I just can’t look at another bowl of lettuce. After a week of kid lunches, I decided enough was enough and I needed to start being more creative with my lunch, while still making something quickly.

We just so happened to have an “about to go bad” avocado on the counter (seriously, I swear avocados are only ripe for about 10 seconds before they go bad!), which is how this delicious Avocado Chicken Salad Sandwich was born.

Avocado Chicken Salad

Avocado chicken salad is essentially guacamole with chicken. Well, maybe guacamole minus a few ingredients if you add tomatoes and peppers to yours like I sometimes do.

And the best part about avocado chicken salad? You guessed it – it’s beyond simple to make! Just mix everything together in a bowl and spread it between two slices of whole wheat bread for a delicious Avocado Chicken Salad Sandwich.

Besides eating avocado plain, when have you ever tried an avocado recipe THAT easy?

I think I might be addicted to these. I want an Avocado Chicken Salad Sandwich for lunch every day now and it’s definitely become my go-to when there’s a perfectly ripe avocado on the counter.

If I cut the onions small enough or leave them out, my kids will even pick the avocado chicken salad over their regular unhealthy lunch favorites. It’s one of the easiest ways I’ve found to get them to eat fruits or veggies for lunch.

For a complete meal, I’ll eat this with another side of fruit or a handful of chips or pretzels.

It’s an easy avocado recipe ready in 5 minutes and perfect for packing in lunches too!
