Avocado Chicken Croissants – a refreshing avocado chicken salad with lime, red onions and cilantro over delicious buttery and flaky croissants.
I’m continuing my theme of using avocados this week only because I bought a few and had to use them. This is the first time I made avocado chicken salad and it was delicious. It’s so refreshing, it’s almost like something you’d expect to eat on a beach somewhere exotic. Perhaps I exaggerate but a girl can dream.
I usually buy a roasted chicken and make all sort of recipes with the meat. It’s so easy and from one chicken sometimes I can get 2 or 3 recipes, well unless the dog is in the kitchen. Most of the time she is, she can smell that chicken a mile away. But I digress.
- 2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (I used the breast from a roasted chicken)
- 1 avocado, mashed
- ¼ cup chopped cilantro
- ½ small red onion, chopped
- juice from a lime
- salt and pepper to taste
- 8 slices of bread or 4 croissants
