Chicken Salad with Avocado, Applewood Smoked Bacon and Tomato

Ingredients

1 roasted chicken, meat removed and rough chopped
2 ripe avocado
1 tsp garlic powder
juice from 1/2 a lime
6-8 slices applewood smoked bacon, cooked and rough chopped
2 tomatoes, diced

Preparation

1
In a bowl add the "meat" of the two avocados and mash with a potato masher until creamy. You can certainly leave it a little chunky as I did, I like getting a few big bites of the avocado.
2
Add the lime juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper and mix to combine. Toss in the chicken, chopped bacon and diced tomatoes. Salt and Pepper to taste. I served this beautiful chicken salad on whole wheat toast with a couple leaves of Romaine lettuce.

 



About

I am a pretty big fan of chicken salad... no not the one saturated in mayo with nothing else present... chicken salad can be flavorful and a little bit lighter then the traditional! I have been on quite the avocado kick lately so I figured why not eliminate the mayo completely and replace it with the wonderful creamy avocado! I mean, c'mon who is going to miss all those calories and not good for you fats?!?! I had found an amazing applewood smoked bacon the other day and figured it would add a perfect amount of smokiness! Throw in a Jersey ripe tomato and voila, a delicious and super simple chicken salad!
