Avocado Chicken Salad Recipe

I like chicken salad but Joe hates mayonnaise so I never make it. I decided to create an alternate chicken salad recipe using avocado instead of mayo. This is a Whole30, Paleo approved, mayo-free recipe which is perfect for our 1st Whole30 Challenge.



  • Rotisserie Chicken (Or some other kind of shredded chicken)
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Tbs Lime and/or Lemon Juice
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Crushed Walnuts (optional)
  • Sliced Grapes (optional)


  1. Shred Chicken. I shredded about half of a whole chicken.
  2. Peel and remove pit from Avocado and mash avocado with a fork to make guacamole. Mix with chicken.
  3. Add Lemon or Lime juice, salt and pepper to the chicken mix.
  4. Add sliced grapes and crushed walnuts (optional)
  5. Serve atop lettuce and top with tomatoes

I didn’t add grapes or walnuts to my chicken salad this time but I’m going to do it next time since that’s how I really love my chicken salad.

My 1 year old, Noah, absolutely LOVED this chicken salad, then again he’ll eat guacamole with a spoon. And most importantly Joe like it.
