The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

After having a bite of the Chipotle Chicken Tacos my coworker brought for lunch a couple of weeks ago, this was my dinner two days later.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Avocado Chicken Salad Sandwich

Avocado Chicken Salad

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!

You would like it since there is not a lot of mayo!

I had never had avacado until a couple of months ago, now I can't get enough of it. This looks great, can't wait to try it!

Welcome to the good side, avocado is absolutely delicious! And healthy too! I'll be posting more recipes soon as I just won a dozen avocados in a giveaway.

What an awesome idea! I have some avocados just lookin' to be used, and this would be a great way to make them delicious. :)

This recipe was great, thank you! I'm currently enjoying it right now. I added a handful of honey toasted slivered almonds to it and it added just the right crunch!

I'm glad you enjoyed it, the almonds are a great idea! I'm going to have to try that out next time I make this.

i can't find any recipes on your site for chipotle mayo. did you make it from scratch or buy it? i'm not a fan of mayo, but if it's really light i might like it :)

You may be able to purchase Chipotle mayo at your grocery store, I was always able to find it in mine. But you can also make it by mixing mayo with a little sour cream,1- 2 chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (using about 1 to teaspooons of sauce depending on how spicy you like it), 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder and 1 to 2 teaspoons of lemon juice.

Great recipe! I didn't have most of the ingredients available, but really liked the avocado/chipotle mayo concept, so I just used what I had. (I think I may have a cooking disorder, as well: I can never follow a recipe verbatim.) I used tuna, avocado, chip. mayo, and tomato on baby greens. It was fabulous! I love the chipotle mayo/avocado combo, and it really turns tuna/chicken salad into something totally different, but just like the original it is very versatile as to what you can add to it. I'm thinking about making some chicken enchiladas with a chipotle mayo/avocado sauce, too.
