Chicken salad is an essential American classic. We can kick out the mayo, mustard, or whatever other sugary mixers you stir into yours. This time, our super-friend, Avocado, brings this delicious recipe together. Despite using only butter lettuce leaves as the chicken salad delivery vessel, this makes a fantastically filling lunch. You won’t be craving your next meal anytime soon.

    Very delicious 😋. I just cut it all up and popped it in a bowl and drizzled the dressing over the top. Will certainly eat on a regular basis

      Well, you like Avocados for on. Not such a fan but know they are good way to obtain good fats. So I added some mayo and walnuts and celery and a little Splenda to make it my own. Not to bad

            No, 1 serving is 3 lettuce cups. The recipe is 2 servings, 3 lettuce cups per serving (about 1/3 cup in each lettuce cup).

          Surprisingly yummy! I didn’t have high hopes because avocado is not one of my favorites but it was super delicious!

            Hubby and I really enjoyed these! So filling too. Topped with Ring of Fire Habanero hot sauce and it paired great with them. Definitely will be a staple meal especially during the hot summers.

                  Looks like lunch today! As an aside, mustard isn’t sugary at least not the yellow, spicy brown or the dijon I keep on hand.

                        Quick and easy to prepare. I buy a rotisserie chicken and have the dark meat for 1-2 meals and then use up the chicken breast to make this salad. Tastes great too

                          Yum. Definitely 2 servings for me. It’s filling. I did not add any salt and it was still tasty.

                                          Good but way too salty! Cut the salt in half or even less.

                                            Alessya 3 years ago

                                            A little too salty for me. Next time I'd decrease the salt in half but overall it was delicious.

                                              Really delicious, and so simple! The butter lettuce I bought was chopped up, but I just stir in a bunch and treat the whole thing as a salad side dish. Perfect for summer.

                                                      Oh my goodness this is out of this world! I added some red pepper flakes for spice and it was amazing! Next time I might do a little less salt, but other than that it feels like you’re eating fancy Mexican food!
