Meal Prep: Avocado Chicken Salad

Happy Monday!! This weekend was definitely busy with one of my cousins getting married so it was go, go, go until Sunday night when I finally collapsed. Like on the couch in a worn out heap. The wedding was beautiful and I'm so happy for my cousin and her new husband!!

I didn't get to meal prep until Sunday night because there was so much to do after we got home, including pick up Cora from the kennel. Running on little sleep I really didn't have the energy to make an elaborate meal. Prep took maybe 25 minutes, that's including grilling the chicken. The flavors all blend together really well and the apple gives it a nice crunch. It's a fun and healthy take on classic chicken salad that's packed with 59 grams of protein, which will help keep you full longer and stop the afternoon snacking! 

Avocado Chicken Salad
  • 4 oz. chicken breast, cooked and shredded
  • 1/2 Fuji apple, diced
  • 1/4-1/3 cup avocado, smashed

In a bowl combine shredded chicken and diced apple. 

Add the avocado in the bowl and use a fork to smash it and combine it with the chicken and apple. 

You can serve the avocado chicken salad on almost anything, but I made a paleo english muffin to make it like a sandwich. You can easily double or triple this recipe to make more for lunches or dinners for the week.
