Avocado Chicken Salad  ~ Butter With A Side of Bread

I’m a huge fan of chicken salad! I have no idea why it took me so long to add avocado, but trust me- I’ll never make chicken salad without it again. I love to just eat it with a fork but putting it atop RITZ® crackers is fantastic! Growing up we always had RITZ® in the pantry and now that I’m a mom ( x 5!) I appreciate finding a great snack that my kids love. One sleeve of RITZ® lasts about 30 minutes in our house- thank heavens for the family sized boxes! We love the Honey Wheat variety, but with so many options of RITZ® crackers to choose from, try several and see which one you like best! This recipe is a lovely blend of sweet and savory, crunchy and soft. It goes together so well and is a real crowd pleaser.

So… I give a recipe here, but know that it’s incredibly versatile. Want to use pineapple tidbits instead of grapes? Sounds perfect. Don’t like raisins? No worries, leave them out. Really- go with what you like- I always opt for more variety!

Avocado Chicken Salad

2 cups diced cooked chicken (canned version works well too!)

about 1/4- 1/3 cup plain yogurt (I use an entire 5.3 oz cup of yogurt)

1 medium avocado, diced

1/2 apple, diced but not peeled

2 stems of celery, sliced (about 1/2 cup)

about 1/2 cup sliced grapes

1/4 cup salted cashews

dash of salt, pepper, dried parsley and onion powder

dash of lemon juice

 

Chop, dice, and/or slice everything and toss in a bowl. Add the dash of lemon juice and stir a bit, coating the apples. Add in yogurt and stir, coating everything well. Mix in seasonings, tasting along the way. Spoon on top of your favorite RITZ® cracker and enjoy!

RITZ® Cracker Varieties

I found a huge variety of different RITZ® crackers at our local Walmart store.

 I love the wheat varieties – WholeWheat and Honey Wheat.

My 3-year old daughter voted for the fun Spring RITZ®. I caved and got all of them.

See the bottom box that has 10 sleeves of crackers in it? Yeah, that’s the box we buy most often. Ha!

  1. will this hold up for a day or two with the avacado or will it turn brown quickly. I want to make for work party but afraid of the avacado. Sounds awesome though. Thanks

    • Because of the dash of lemon juice it won’t turn brown super fast. However if it was ME making it for a party, what I’d do is add the avocado at the very last minute. 🙂 I had some for lunch today and the avocado was a bit brown- less than if there wasn’t any lemon juice, but of course not the vibrant green it used to be. (This is after 3 days in the fridge.) Hope this helps!
