Chicken salad is one of my favorite go-to lunches, especially when I get to eat it out of an avocado bowl! I mean, doesn't anything served with avocado just taste better? This lemon chicken salad in avocado bowls is a fun way to enjoy a healthy keto-friendly lunch.
This savory lemon chicken salad is super easy to throw together. I usually use leftover roast chicken, but canned chicken works just as well. Plus, this recipe is much lighter than other versions since I use a combination of mayonnaise and lemon juice.
I am not a huge fan of traditional chicken salad with grapes or dried fruit, so I came up with my own savory version. Celery adds a nice crunch, plus fresh parsley, and lots of lemon juice for a bright citrus flavor. I season it with Bragg's savory seasoning blend and my secret ingredient - celery seed. It's pretty much the most delicious chicken salad ever! Serve it in half an avocado as a convenient "bowl" or scoop it up with your favorite crackers.
