Ladies Who Lunch, But Shop @Target: Avocado Chicken Salad

Beef read You’re Moroccan Me Hungry and thought it was a cop-out filler post. I disagree. I’m not a chef; this isn’t a cooking blog; it wasn’t my recipe– but I know of at least one person who made it after reading, so if it touched just one life, then my work here is done.

A little while ago, I heard a friend of mine who’s also post-baby talk about her healthy good-fats lunch salad, and I was intrigued. The other thing that’s been recently intriguing me is food shopping at Target, because it combines errands and makes life easier once in a while. So I came up with this.

Presenting Avocado Chicken Salad ala Target! Serves 2.

  • 2 cooked chicken breasts (I poach and shred)
  • 2 100-calorie packets Wholly Guacamole
  • A couple tablespoons diced red or green onion
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Cilantro to taste
  • 2 Arnold 100-calorie Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins

Toss the first five ingredients. Just throwing it out there– I did mix in a little leftover cooked quinoa for some extra crunch. Serve open-faced on toasted sandwich thins with Baked Kettle Chips and Vlassic pickle spears. Also, Target is the only place I’ve found that sells  COCONUT La Croix!

    • It basically just means boil. I take a boneless, skinless chicken breast and put it in a pot with cold water. Bring it to a boil and let it simmer about 15 minutes. Once it cools a bit, it’s easy to shred with two forks.
