I have seen this recipe float around on Pinterest for quite some time. The reason I finally made it is because I had a bunch of avocados to use and chicken already cooked. Not sure why I waited so long. I  normally detest chicken salad, but man, this is REALLY good.

  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 T. fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup light mayo
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek Yogurt

Mash avocado and stir in remaining ingredients. Chill for at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Serve in pita bread, or on a bed of lettuce, or however sounds good to you.
