Recipe: Grilled Chicken Bacon and Avocado Salad
Prep: 15 minutes
Serves: 6-8 (Depends how you serve it. It’ll go farther on sandwiches.)
6 organic chicken breasts, grilled (organic chicken breasts typically are quite a bit smaller than the huge, non-organic because of the lack of hormones. So keep that in mind)
5-6 green onions, diced
1 package bacon
2 avocados, cubed
2-3 tablespoons organic or homemade mayo
salt and pepper to taste
-Preheat oven to 400 and bake bacon on a cookie sheet until slightly crispy. When finished, transfer to a lined plate and blot excess grease. Finely chop.
-Grill the chicken (I used garlic, salt, pepper and onion. Pretty basic.) and let rest. Cube when cooled.
-Dice green onions and cube the avocado. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and add mayo. Start small and add more if you need to. I don’t put very much at all, as you can tell in the photo. Just enough to give it a little moisture. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with sandwich buns or alone.
This is also really yummy leftovers, so it can be eaten at any temperature. Warm, cold or room temp.
As you know I like to take healthy Pinterest recipes and make them healthier!
I have a couple great tweaks!
1. bake the chicken you can add whatever spices to it to make you happy.
2. (Tweak) instead of bacon use turkey bacon. I used applewood farms
3. I diced up scallions and (tweak) I added fresh cilantro
4. Homemade Mayo or organic mayo is still mayo! You can dress up a turd it’s still a turd! (Tweak) I made a healthy dressing! Take a cup of plain greek yogurt add in powered ranch dressing.
5. Cube up 2 avocados.
Mix everything up in a big bowl and use a big slotted spoon it’s much easier to mix that way!
Then I am going to make a healthy salad/spinach salad, add some vegetables and fresh mozzarella then top with the avocado chicken bacon salad mix and drizzle it with fig balsamic glaze.
Viola you are done and ready to enjoy with no guilt!
Stay tuned for the practical application!
