Calling all avocado lovers! This particular recipe was extremely quick and easy. Very smooth and creamy! This is a great alternative to using mayo in my chicken salad all of the time. The sour cream adds just the right amount of acidity along with the lime. This recipe did call for blending the chicken with the avocado but I did see the review mentioning that it came out pasty. I have made it with the chicken blended and while I do not mind it I really enjoy chunks of chicken in my salad so I opted this time to add it after I have blended all of the other ingredients. I served it along with some brioche sliders and voila! Perfect for a group of friends too. Will continue to make this again and again! Read More

Not very kid friendly. Next time I won't purée the chicken. The consistency was sort of pasty Read More

I made this and loved it! The only changes I made were using Greek yogurt instead of sour cream & I used half the amount of pepper (but next time might use even less). I also don't have a food processor so I kind of chopped the chicken then shredded by hand a little and it turned out just fine. Will definitely be making again! Read More

I really enjoyed this recipe. I used light cottage cheese (blended to make it smooth) instead of the sour cream to keep it light. Delicious! Read More

Good basic recipe made better when I made the following changes: Used half sour cream half mayo and cut back on the pepper. Also chopped the chicken into bite size pieces and stirred the dressing in. Was so tasty that I forgot to add the avocado! Read More

This recipe is delicious! A couple changes- instead of sour cream use 0% milk fat Greek yogurt. Tastes the same has less fat and is loaded with protein. Also I added some red onion for a little crunch! And because I love garlic I threw in a few cloves. We ate this on crackers and also rolled up in a tortilla. YUM! Read More

This was really good and creamy. Two out of three kids ate it. The recipe calls for too much pepper I think. Next time I'll cut the pepper down. Read More

This is good. I really liked the lime and avocado flavor with the chicken. I didn't add all the pepper--probably just a total of 1/4 t. I used canned chicken so I didn't puree any of it--just stirred it all around until creamy but with a few chunks. I took some out for myself and then I added diced red onion because my husband has to have raw onion in any chicken salad. I also added a few dashes of hot sauce to his. Read More
