Avocado Chicken Spread

This spread is a quick addition for leftover chicken that is creamy and garlicky.  Avocados are an amazing healthy fat.  You can also make this with grilled tofu, tuna, or any protein you prefer.

  • 4 pieces grilled chicken tenders, diced or shredded
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt, ricotta cheese, or olive oil mayonnaise
  • 1 Garlic clove, riced
  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Lemon or lime juice

Mix all ingredients together with a spritz of lime or lemon juice to help maintain the color a little longer, until avocados are well blended.

Makes: ~4-6 Servings

Simple Portions: Hydration, Healthy Fats, Whole Proteins, Other colorful veggie.  Add with a green salad or cup of iced red raspberry leaf and nettle tea for balance.

This spread is great as a dip for snacking or an appetizer and wonderful in arepas.  It makes a great flavorful addition to any sandwich or on its own in a grilled panini with extra melted cheese.  You'll want to plan to eat this within 1-2 days, even with the citrus juice it won't last long - but a fresh meal is so much better than the preservative-rich alternatives.
