Avocado and Mango Chicken Salad

Avocado & Mango Chicken Salad is an easy recipe that’s totally good for you!

Avocado and Mango Chicken Salad. A healthy and easy recipe perfect for the warmer months!

It’s been a craaaaazy month for me. I’m still getting used to my new working routine (which changes everyday…and I LOVE IT!) and we’re still looking for a new place to live. We had our heart set on a 3 bedroom home in Wicker Park, but in the final hours we got out bid. I’m still not totally over it but we’re back to the drawing board. I want to find home but is it strange that I really want my weekends back??!! Looking at homes and open houses are always right in the middle of the day – which is when I get the best light at our current apartment. And a girl needs some good light for food photos!

But very few things could keep me from posting today. It’s Lisa’s Virtual Baby Shower!! Lisa from Wine & Glue is one of my best bloggy friends…and I’ve actually met her in person! We were partners in crime at BlogHer’13 last July and we’ve been buddies ever since. She’s one of the co-hosts of Wake Up Wednesdays, our weekly link party, so I’m sure all of you know her, too!

Lisa already has two of the cutest kids, Gavin and Quinn. I love stalking her blog seeing what funny things they have said or mischief they’ve gotten into recently. I can only imagine how cute the newest little Longley lady will be! Lisa will certainly have her hands full, so I wanted to share a fun and healthy recipe she can make while trying to hold down the fort.

Clean Eating Chicken Salad is one of my favorite recipes to make! Lately I’ve grown obsessed with avocados and add them to EVERYTHING. Who am I kidding — I can eat an avocado with just a spoon. I love the richness in flavor an avocado always brings. Since it’s finally Spring, we all need an easy spring salad. To make this chicken salad super easy, buy a rotisserie chicken and shred it. It’s totally worth the $6.99 when it comes to saving time. Add to a bowl with diced avocado, mangos, onions and lime juice. Add some salt and pepper… and look at that. You have yourself a healthy salad!

If you wanted to serve this at a party, it goes great in a whole-wheat pita to make a sandwich. It’s also filling just on it’s own!

Happy Baby Shower, Lisa!! And since Lisa has so many people who love her, check out what her other bloggy friends are bringing to the party! {You’ll find the links below the recipe!}
