There are a lot of health benefits of avocados! Avocados are:

- rich in vitamin K
- vitamin B
- vitamin C, and
- vitamin E
So the next time you *think* you won’t eat an avocado, rethink that, because I did and have come to LOVE them!
I always *thought* I hated avocados. I mean they just look nasty from the outside, am I right?!? As I’ve been on this “eating right” thing I’m on, I’ve come to realize there are A LOT of fruits and vegetables I have never tried, so I decided to expand my taste buds a bit.
How do you make avocado chicken salad?
Boil or poach the chicken. To do that in a large pot, place chicken and cover with water and/or chicken broth. The chicken broth just gives added flavor to the chicken.
Remove the chicken once cooked through, about 8-10 minutes of a steady boil.
Place in food processor or using a hand mixer shred chicken.
Add remaining ingredients to the food processor and combine until mixed well.
Serve on a croissant, toast, bread or just eat it with a fork!
How long does avocado chicken salad last in the fridge?
When kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator, the chicken salad will stay fresh for about 5 days. Unfortunately, it does not freeze well.
