Paleo Chicken Salad

One of our favorite paleo recipes is this chicken salad:
IMG_2226 IMG_2229 IMG_2233 IMG_2234 IMG_2236


Ingredients:
  • 1 rotisserie chicken (OR 5-6 boiled chicken breasts)
  • 1 avocado
  • spicy mustard
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/2 cup chopped grapes
  • *Optional: lime juice
Directions:
  1. Remove skin from rotisserie chicken & shred / pull into a large bowl.
  2. Cut avocado & scoop out insides into a small bowl. Mash with a fork until smooth. **You can add a little lime juice**
  3. Add avocado & spicy mustard to the pulled chicken. You'll have to eye the amount of mustard to get a consistency that you like. 
  4. Next, add the chopped almonds & chopped grapes 
  5. Stir thoroughly. Add salt & pepper to taste 
We love this recipe because it's easy, healthy & makes enough for at least four meals. You can definitely tweak this recipe too -- add dried cranberries, walnuts, a little plain Greek yogurt, a hard boiled egg (or two)...anything you like! (:
