Avocado Chicken Salad

Avocado Chicken Salad

Tastes so good you won't believe it's healthy!

This avocado chicken salad is crunchy, healthy and filling all at the same time! It’s full of fresh veggies, uses an avocado-peanut vinaigrette instead the classic mayonnaise, and gets its creamy texture from healthy avocado. Such amazing combinations in a bowl!


Ingredients list

  • 1 lb (450g) boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • Salt and fresh cracked pepper
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 cups chopped Napa cabbage
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • 1 radicchio, chopped (optional)
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 seedless cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup peanuts, chopped

The avocado peanut dressing

  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1/2 cup peanuts
  • Juice of one 1/2 lime
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt + 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Crispy Chicken and avocado salad


1. Marinate the chicken: In a large bowl, combine honey, lime juice, soy sauce, and pepper. Marinate chicken in this mixture for at least 30 minutes. 

2. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Drain the chicken breast from the marinade and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, without burning. Once cooked through, set chicken aside and allow to cool slightly. Cut into slices.

3. To make the dressing: Mix the ingredients ( avocado, rice vinegar, peanuts, lime juice, and garlic) together in a blender or food processor. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.

4. Combine the chopped Napa cabbage, carrots, cilantro, red onion and radicchio in a large bowl and toss it with a pinch of salt and pepper. Add the chicken on top along with the avocado and cucumber. Drizzle on the dressing, top with chopped peanuts, and serve! ♥︎

Note: The avocado peanut dressing can be stored in the fridge in a sealed container for a couple of days.
