Chicken Salad in an Avocado recipe

This is a classic at my hometown cafe. It is low carb and delicious! It is a great alternative to serving your favorite chicken salad recipe in a bed of lettuce or as a sandwich. Serves four.


  • 2 ripe avocados, cut in half and pitted
  • 1 breast of chicken, cooked and cubed
  • 2 boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1 rib of celery, diced
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup almonds, chopped
  • 1/4 parsley, chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Combine the chicken, eggs, celery, onion, mayonnaise, almonds, and parsley in a medium bowl. Mix until fully combined. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. Remove the avocados from their husk being sure to keep them in one whole piece. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Fill the cavity of the avocado with chicken salad creating a heaping top.

  4. Serve with a knife and fork.

You can use any chicken, tuna, or pasta salad recipe for the filling. It is just a great way to serve!

You left out what to do with the avocado fruit after removing them from their husks. Aren't they supposed to be mashed and mixed in with the other ingredients? Surely you don't throw them out.

Refer to step 3. They didn't really mention that you cut it in half and remove the pit, but that's pretty standard.
