How to Make Rotisserie Chicken Salad

1. Chop the celery, red bell pepper, and red onion into small cubes and place them in a medium-size bowl.

2. Add the garlic, paprika, kosher salt, freshly ground pepper, dijon mustard, freshly squeezed lemon juice, dill weed, parsley, green onions, and mayonnaise into the bowl.

3. Mash the avocado in a separate bowl with a fork until smooth and add to the bowl. 

8. Mix everything together until fully incorporated.

9. Make sure the chicken is cold, as it is easier to remove the meat. Hand shred and use a fork to remove the white and dark meat from the chicken. Remove all the white and dark meat and place it on a cutting board and roughly chop. Do not include the skin.

10. Place the chopped chicken into the medium-sized bowl and fold into the mixture until fully coated.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • If you prefer you can shred your chicken with two forks or a mixer. This will give it a finer texture than chopping it. 
  • I love adding grapes, apples, craisins, and even almonds or pecans to this salad to give it different layers of sweetness and crunch in every bite. 
  • If you want to swap out the mayonaise, you can replace it with 3 avocados or half of the mayonnaise can be replaced with greek yogurt.
