  • 2 cups cooked chicken (shredded or cubed, see note)
  • 1 medium California avocado
  • 1/2 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup salsa (I love TJ’s Double Roasted)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Bread (sliced white/wheat or soft rolls)
  • Lettuce , tomato, and/or onion, optional


  • Remove the flesh from the avocado and place in a medium bowl. Mash with a potato masher. Stir in yogurt, salsa, salt, and pepper. Stir in chicken.
  • Serve chicken salad on a soft roll or toasted sliced bread. Top with lettuce, tomato, and onion if you wish!


The easiest chicken to use is a rotisseire one from the grocery store. Simply shred and use in the recipe. You can also cook chicken breasts (grill/roast/boil) and then dice or shred them. Or use leftover chicken from a previous dinner. The options are endless!
