'Engagement Chicken' Avocado Salad (DF)

What to do with leftovers from Ina Garten’s infamous 'Engagement Chicken’ recipe? The ubiquitous avocado, now available year round, steps up to the challenge.

If time is an issue, a prepared roasted chicken from the market works fine. As an added bonus: prep time for the salad is about 10 minutes!

My Paleo Marin Rating: 4 Persimmons


2 avocados, sliced in half and pitted
2 cups shredded roasted chicken
1/4 cup red onion, minced
1/3 cup non-dairy mayo, preferably Follow Your Heart Vegenaise Grapeseed Oil
2 Tablespoons non-dairy Greek yogurt, preferably Kite Hill Plain Unsweetened
Juice of 1 lemon
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, preferably Edmond Fallot Dijon Mustard

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Garnish: Chopped parsely and/or chives


1. Scoop out avocados, leaving a small border if possible. Dice the scooped-out avocado pieces and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, mix together chicken, onion, mayo, yogurt, lemon juice, and mustard. Fold in diced avocado. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Divide the salad into 4 portions and place it into the avocado shells. Add garnishes and serve.

My Paleo Marin Rating 1-5 Persimmons
I try out these recipes so you don't have to (and modify them for Paleo where possible). The rating will reflect my opinion of the final result in terms of taste, ease of preparation, nutrition, and sometimes, cost.
