Avocado Chicken Salad


Do you run out of lunch ideas like me? I love to throw leftovers over greens but I need to mix things up often.

Since getting a pressure cooker ,we've been roasting a whole chicken on a regular basis for dinner. (It only takes 23 minutes!!) And then we're left with a lot of leftover chicken meat to use up.

This week, I decided to throw together a mayo-less chicken salad and it hit the spot! It's easy, healthy and delicious with healthy fats from the avocado, a little tang from the lemon and crunch from the cucumbers.

Here's the easy recipe:

Do you eat the same thing day after day for lunch or do you need variety?
