    You’re going to want to start with ripe avocados, which is probably the trickiest part of this recipe. 😉 Am I the only one that has trouble with avocados going from too hard to too soft in a matter of minutes?

    Dice up your avocado and add it to a mixing bowl with some cooked shredded chicken (rotisserie chicken is perfect for this!), red onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and a little garlic powder.

    I also add in a dollop of mayo to make this salad nice and creamy. You could also use Greek yogurt, but that will affect the carb count.

    Stir everything together – no need to be gentle. As you stir, the avocado will break down a bit and start to coat the chicken. It makes this perfectly creamy!
