dreamy creamy avocado chicken salad

so, you’ve been making bread all week too?

this avocado chicken salad is PERFECT on a sandwich OR over greens. avocado chicken salad and perfect creamy dressing

honestly, it’s been such a joy to channel my granny this week and help brighten a few days with freshly made carbs.

if you missed her bread recipe and story, check it out here…

we’ve whipped up the easy chicken salad version with canned stuff and we throw in pineapple in ours, like our bread store used to do,

but when i saw this one, i knew we had to try it.

we are kind of obsessed with avocado, and the hint of mint happening in there is kill.er!

who knew!

avocado chicken salad on romaine

i loved it just on greens myself, but had to toast up some bread for my husband because he gave me the,

“so, we’re eating ‘chick food'” face when i told him…

truth: he likes it both ways too.

and this is just another testament to why it’s awesome to buy rotisserie chicken every so often.

so many meals made so easy with already cooked chicken.

it tastes so much better than most other ways i would cook it for this {unless maybe in the crockpot with broth}

so it had lots of flavor and was a tasty addition.

{i use rotisserie chicken lots, if you want to see more, just search rotisserie on the side to see what we’ve made!}

and the dressing is so good, it can be tossed into a regular salad too if you really wanted. go for it. no one would know or care.
