Clean Eating Chicken Salad

This is a perfect meal for busy moms, if you are constantly on the go, or need something quick to throw together to toss in your lunch box before work. This is so good and doesn't even taste like you are eating something healthy.
I prepared enough for the rest of the week so that it is quick and easy to grab and go!  It has a combination of good fats, protein and dairy all in one, enough to keep you full and energized through the day!

Clean Eating Chicken Salad
Ingredients:
Avocado Chicken Salad

  • 4 chicken breasts cooked and shredded
  • plain low fat greek yogurt
  • green onions sliced
  • Cilantro chopped thin
  • 1 avocado mashed
  • salt and pepper
  • lime juice
Directions:
There were no specific measurements with this recipe so I just added a little until I got the consistency and taste that I wanted.  I started by scooping out the avocado into a bowel and mashing with a fork, then I added a scoop of greek yogurt and stirred until it was a creamy consistency.   Next I added the chopped green onions, just enough to give it some flavor.  Then I chopped up a handful of cilantro and mixed that in.  I added a splash of lime juice and some salt and pepper.  I mixed that together well and gave it a taste test.  I ended up adding a little more salt and pepper and it was perfect.  I covered and put in the fridge and this morning I put a couple of scoops on a whole wheat tortilla with some lettuce and tomato for my husband and now he has a clean lunch!!!

Enjoy!!!!
