Yogurt and Avocado Chicken Salad

Ever since we made our Cucumber Egg Salad, I’ve been craving chicken salad.
I once had an amazing avocado chicken salad at a local restaurant here in Columbia, so I thought I’d try to replicate it and make it a little creamier by adding yogurt. Served in pitas, it’s a healthier alternative to its full-of-mayo cousin and so creamy and delicious you’ll never miss it!


2 cups diced cooked chicken breasts (use cold)
1 small red onion, diced
1 small green apple, diced
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 avocado, mashed
2 tablespoons lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
2 pita pockets, halved

  2. Add the cooled chicken to mixture, Taste and adjust the seasonings if needed.
  3. Spoon into pita pockets and serve with extra toppings like tomatoes, lettuce, sprouts or cheese!
