A New Twist or Two on Chicken Salad

My friend Jackie is a great cook, and loves finding new recipes as much as I do.  Our Pinterest boards are full of them.  The other day she emailed me some links for chicken salad recipes, and while I didn't follow them exactly, I used the ideas and did my own thing.  They were both delicious, I highly recommend keeping these in mind next time you have a chicken salad hankering. 

I know you can all make chicken salad, but these little changes kick things up a notch.  I started with a rotisserie chicken and cut all the meat off.  Split in half gave me about 2 cups of chicken for each recipe.

Avocado Chicken Salad
2 cups shredded/cubed cooked chicken
1/2 avocado, cubed
1 cup grapes, halved
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/4 lemon, juiced
salt and pepper
Mayo, optional for extra creaminess




Hummus Chicken Salad
2 cups shredded/cubed cooked chicken
1/2 cup hummus
1/2 avocado, cubed
1/4 bell pepper, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/4 lemon, juiced
salt and pepper
