Avocado Chicken Salad… Mayo Free!!

Chicken:

12 Chicken Tenderloins
2 TB olive oil
salt and pepper
1/2 tsp. ground coriander
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic salt

Drizzle olive oil (or similar) into skillet and heat on med. high. Place seasonings in a bowl and mix. Season each tenderloin on both sides and place into skillet. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side. Remove from skillet and set on cutting board to cool.
Once cooled, cut into bit size pieces (or shred) and set aside.

Avocado Chicken Salad:

Chicken listed above
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
juice and zest of 1 lime
salt and pepper to taste
2 scallions chopped finely
4 leaves basil chopped
1 tsp. fresh tarragon leaves
2 avocados sliced and diced and slightly mashed
20 grapes cut into quarters

Mix all above ingredients together in a bowl and chill until ready to serve!

I put this over a mixed green lettuce salad, and then drizzled homemade dressing over top: https://dancinandcookininthekitchen.com/2014/06/02/my-favorite-homemade-salad-dressing-vinaigrette/HomeMade Dressing

This chicken salad is very satisfying and, in my opinion, guilt free! This one is all taste and no worries!! Definitely try this one out!

So… I served the chicken salad with a FRUIT salad… and it got such rave reviews, I am going to put the “dressing” that I put onto it here!

Ok… so I put blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, white peaches, and grapes into a bowl. Then, I juiced 1 1/2 lemons and zested 1 lemon, added 2 TB honey and some mint and whisked. I then poured the “dressing” over the fruit and tossed as a salad. This whole bowl, PLUS the amount I gave my parents was GONE!!! It’s a good one!!!!

 

And now, for the quote of the day:
