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.
- 2 cups cooked boneless skinless chicken breast I use leftover roasted chicken if I have it
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1 juice of lime
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 clove of garlic minced
- Sriracha sauce for drizzling The hotter you like it the more you use!
- Pita bread for serving
In a medium bowl mash avocados, mix in lime, honey and garlic.
Toss chicken in your avocado mixture and coat. Salt to taste.
Serve with pita bread or eat it as is! Enjoy :)
