Sriracha Chicken Salad - The Lemon Bowl

Lunch time is my favorite meal of the day, I love salads and sandwiches and never get bored of either. I especially love chicken salads. I think I make a new version weekly. Lately my obsession is this Avocado Chicken Salad. It’s simple. Chicken, avocado, lime juice, and a bit of salt. To kick it up I dump half a bottle of sriracha on top. Sriracha makes it into 2/3 of my daily meals. I LOOOOVE the stuff. If you have never had it, it’s a Thia style chili sauce that can be found in most ethnic food isles. If you like a little heat added to your foods, check it out.

  1. Firstly, these photos are incredible, and secondly, this chicken salad really looks very delicious. I really want to try this recipe but I have never seen a Sriracha hot chili in the supermarket nearest us. May I ask what good substitute for this? Thank you.

    1. Well one option is to purchase it online – it really is that good. Alternatively, you can find it at Asian or international markets. If you can’t find it – any hot sauce will work!!

  2. I would like to know how people have prepared the chicken for this recipie. It looks and sounds awesome and heathly.

    1. Great question Belinda!! I would certainly say that this is great for leftover grilled chicken breasts, poached chicken breasts, baked chicken breasts – you name it!

    1. Thank you for your fabulous guest post!!! Everyone is loving your salad and I can’t wait to make it myself!
