Avocado Chicken Salad Ingredients:
2 large cooked chicken breasts shredded or chopped
2 large avocados
1 cup corn from 1 cooked cob
6 oz lean bacon cooked and chopped

3 Tbsp lemon juice freshly squeezed

1/8 tsp black pepper
US Customary - Metric
Dice or shred the 2 large cooked chicken breasts and place into a large mixing bowl.
Peel and pit 2 large avocados, slice into bite-sized pieces and add to the mixing bowl.
Add 1 cup of cooked corn (freshly cooked corn is best), toss in 1/4 cup chopped green onion, chopped bacon, and 2 Tbsp fresh Dill.
Add dressing ingredients to a small bowl and stir to combine. Drizzle over your salad and toss to combine. Serve with slices of hard boiled egg if desired.
*You can use rotisserie chicken, cook your own chicken breast seasoned with salt and pepper or use well-drained canned chicken.
**For a healthier salad, you can use uncured turkey bacon which tastes amazing, but has less fat.
