So that is a picture of what I've been eating for lunch all week. It's a chicken salad sandwich that involves avocado and chipotle mayo. If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle so I've been a pretty happy camper this week.
Avocados add a nice creamy texture so you can add less mayo, which means it's a healthier option than chicken salads that are normally loaded with mayo. I was a little hesitant that Mr. KMW would boycott this sandwich since he LOVES mayo, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if I caught him eating it out of a jar with a spoon like ice cream, but he is a huge fan of this lightened up version.
Another great thing about this chicken salad is that I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make. Are you sold yet? You should be. Here's the recipe. As always, taste as you go and adjust ingredients accordingly.
1 rotisserie chicken, shredded
2 avocados, pitted and cut into pieces
1/2 small onion, chopped
1/3 cup chipotle mayo (adjust depending on how big your chicken is and how much mayo you like)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Mix together all ingredients. Adding more mayo or seasoning as needed. Spoon chicken salad onto bread or into pita and enjoy!
