Chicken Salad-

Though the salad uses minimal ingredients and ones you most likely already have in your refrigerator, the results are phenomenal.

Juicy chicken breast is wonderful when combined with crispy Romaine, red onion, cucumbers, tomatoes and cilantro. The easy homemade garlic and lemon oil dressing adds so much flavor to the chicken salad.

Avocado Chicken Salad-

My most favorite combination for a filling salad would have to be chicken and avocado. There’s just something about the two ingredients in a salad that really work.

Though the chicken in this recipe is seasoned with simple ingredients of paprika, garlic, salt and pepper with oil, it’s so juicy and tender. Enjoy the chicken served warm over the salad or cold, whatever your personal preference is.

How to Cook Chicken for Salad?

The chicken for this salad recipe can either be cooked in a pan or grilled. Grilling the chicken will add even more flavor to the salad.
