Lazy Girl Chicken Salad

I came across this recipe on Jessica's blog, Lovely Little Things, and couldn't wait to try a healthier version of chicken salad.

Let me tell you, my friends, once you make this recipe you won't ever want to use mayo again!

I am going to call this concoction of deliciousness, The Lazy Girl Chicken Salad because I am not the best cook nor do I try perfect my skills.  I leave that to Ross...he is Top Chef in our house...my children are thankful (and so am I).

Truth be told, I am calling it The Lazy Girl because I used homemade guacamole from my H.E.B. grocery store.  For those Texas girls out there, if you haven't already, you MUST pick up a container of this green goodness.  If you don't live in Texas, I am sorry for rubbing it in.  You can whip up a batch of guacamole or just use a few avocados.

What you need:

Guacamole (or avocados)
Can of white meat chicken
A handful of cilantro
A handful of green onions
Lime juice
Salt and Pepper to your liking

Just mix it all together and you are ready to go!

I ate mine with some the cracked pepper and olive oil Triscuits.  For Round 2 I think I may try it on some toasted bread.  This is great for a gluten-free diet or for those who don't care much for mayonnaise.

I can't wait for Ross to try it when he gets home.  He's going to be so proud of me!  I am actually pretty impressed with myself.  

Don't get too excited about this recipe post...I have a feeling you won't be seeing too many of these in the future.  But, if I make something new and it actually tastes good, I will be sure to let you know!

Cheers to easy recipes that make you lick you lips and say, "Mmmmm, did I make this!?".

P.S. Thanks for all the sweet words of encouragement yesterday! It felt good to get it out and to share more of myself with you. It's part of the whole "Who Am I" process!

I hardly ever cook but maybe ill give this a try and make it for my husband. I'm a vegetarian and he isn't so he would be happy to have some meat for once :)

That is HANDS DOWN the best guacamole on the planet. I can't help but grab a container if I see a fresh batch in the produce department.

Great, easy lunch idea. I love those!!
