Chicken stuffed avocado.

After a lovely lunch that consisted of 4 halves of my Deviled Avocados, I figured it was time to change up a few things and incorporate a chicken salad.

To prepare this delicious stuffed avocado recipe, all you’re going to need is:

  1. Avocados… yep!
  2. cooked chicken breasts
  3. BACON!
  4. and green onions

lemon dressing, homemade salad dressings, vinaigrette

FOR THE LEMON DRESSING, you will need:

  1. Lemons!
  2. garlic
  3. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  4. dried oregano
  5. salt and pepper

Whisk together all of the ingredients in a small bowl and adjust the seasonings to taste.

Bacon, chicken, and avocado mix.

HOW TO STUFF AN AVOCADO

Rich and loaded with nutrients, stuffed avocados are the perfect vehicle to load up with your favorite healthy ingredients.

  • To begin, cut the avocados in half and remove the pit.
  • Carefully scoop out the avocado flesh and cut into cubes; transfer to a mixing bowl and squeeze lemon juice over the avocados AND the empty avocado shells so they do not brown.
  • Dice up some cooked chicken and add it to the salad bowl.
  • Cook bacon to a desired crispness; crumble it, and add it to the salad bowl.
  • Take three to four green onions and slice both, white and green parts. Add the white parts to the salad bowl and keep the green parts for garnish.
  • Toss the salad with the prepared lemon dressing, taste for seasonings and adjust accordingly. Then, grab a spoon and stuff the prepared chicken bacon salad back into the empty avocado shells.
  • Top with a dollop of yogurt, if desired, garnish with dried parsley and green onions, and serve.

Bacon and Chicken stuffed in avocados.

I could seriously eat 4 of these in one sitting. I actually might have done that. In all honesty, I can’t resist the texture! Never mind that it’s as delicious as an avocado can get, but the textures of the crunchy bacon and green onions, plus the buttery avocado, and tender chicken – it’s just so much goodness all in one bite.

THAT is what will have you morning-dreaming up until lunch time.

    Legit speechless, that stuffed avocados with chicken bacon salad recipe looks unreal! Definitely, I will make it on the weekend for my family.

  3. This was great, BUT like most low carb recipes I have tried lately, the calories seem to be pretty considerably underestimated according to my calorie counting app (100 calories more than the nutrition facts indicate) even though I was able to get 8 full servings out of this recipe instead of 6. Anyone have a similar issue?

  4. This is EXCELLENT! I have made this three times already, but the only difference is that I end up tossing everything with romaine lettuce. Brought this to a BBQ and got RAVE reviews on it. I do use more garlic in the dressing and added a few sprinkles each of cayenne pepper and paprika and used sea salt instead of kosher salt to bring out the lemony flavor. I just started Keto two weeks ago and this is definitely one of my fave things to eat so far! THANK YOU!
