Mango & Avocado Chicken Salad

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

From our skinny table to yours...

Today's meal was inspired by one of our favorite snack foods... guacamole!  We just can't seem to get enough.  Today we are mixing things up with the typical mayo packed chicken salad and making our healthy and delicious avocado and mango chicken salad.  One of our favorite skinny substitutions is to swap out mayo for mashed avocados.  Although relatively high in calories, avocados are packed with nutrition!

YUM!  This was so fresh and delicious.  We started off this chicken salad by using boiled chicken and mixing in avocado, juicy mango chunks, grape tomatoes, garlic, yellow onion, jalapeno, cilantro and freshly squeezed lime juice.  You probably won't be surprised when we tell you we wrapped this in a cool and crunchy lettuce wrap ;)  We love lettuce wraps and use them all the time and save hundreds of calories by doing so!

Hope you enjoy this one :)

    1. Hi! We frequently boil to eliminate added calories from the cooking oils!

  5. You girls are my favorites. I have been following you for a little over a month now. I made this delish recipe tonight for dinner and it was all it claimed to be. I sent a picture of my dinner plate to my boyfriend and he can't wait to get home and try it. Today I am embarking on a quest to regain my healthy lifestyle. I'm using your recipes as a guide on my journey. I look forward to future recipes as well as exercise tips, since "I don't go to the Gym" either. Like you both, I work out at home and have been for over 10 years now. The hiatus is over. Thank you both for coming along in my life when I especially need the motivation and resources. xxx
