Chicken salad makeover!

Who doesn't love a good chicken salad sandwich for lunch? If you add in mayonnaise, it sure will taste good but it might not be so good for you. I make a version of chicken salad that my family loves, with a healthy kick!

Avocado Chicken Salad served on Arnold Sandwich Thins Fill'ems

Avocado Chicken Salad
Leftover chicken breasts, shredded (2 breasts should be about right)
1 avocado, diced
1 tomato, diced
Red onion (to taste), diced
Lime juice, onion powder, chili powder, salt & pepper - all to taste

Mix together well - it is ok if the avocado gets mashed up, it serves as the mayo you're not adding. Do not omit the lime juice - it keeps the avocados from browning.

My family seems to prefer this version, and I serve it frequently for guests as well.
