Easy Chicken Salad

Recipe of the Week


So for some reason the volume on my live Chicken Salad video failed. Here is that recipe once again. I love recipes that can be easily changed to use items I already have in my pantry or fridge. I am not much of a recipe follower and prefer to adjust my recipes to fit my macros for the day and this one definitely fits the bill. At the end I will put some easy swaps to help fit your macros a little better.

Chicken Salad


1 can chunk chicken breast (you can use rotisserie or cook your own chicken breasts)

1 whole small avocado (under 200g with skin and seed) mashed

Add in:

whole almonds (approx. 14 or 0.5 ounce)

2 T. dried cranberries

1/2 small apple

1 stalk celery

salt/pepper to taste


Substitutions:  avocado- sub for 1 T or more mayo to taste   Need healthy fats?- increase the  almonds, or add pecans or sunflower seeds, or other preferred nuts. Need more carbohydrates?- add more dried fruit or halved grapes, or more apple. You can also increase the amount of celery.
