Ingredients for the Keto Chicken Salad
I love to make effortless recipes, and this easy keto avocado chicken salad is no exception from this rule. Summer is going to end soon, so I’d rather spend some time in nature after work than in the kitchen near a hot oven.
This salad is an excellent source of protein featuring rotisserie chicken, bacon, and eggs. For healthy fats, we add avocado and olive oil in the dressing. All these ingredients are a staple in our keto kitchen.
For this refreshing low carb chicken salad you’ll need just a few ingredients that I bet you already have:
- chicken breast – if you have leftover chicken breast, this is the best way to use it. Rotisserie chicken breast is perfect if you want to save some time.
- avocado – is among the healthiest fruits on the planet and comes with many potential benefits. And it’s so creamy, nutty and full of flavor.
- mixed greens – For little crunch and volume I love to add mixed greens to my keto chicken sala
- boiled eggs – my favorite protein.
- bacon – bacon is life and has a place in any recipe. Pairs perfect with eggs and chicken so here it is. Salty Crunchy Bacon!
- red onion
- fresh parsley
How to Make to Make the Keto Paleo Chicken Salad
It’s a breeze to make this easy keto chicken recipe even if you have to cook your chicken breast. Roasted or boiled it adds roughly 20 minutes.
Just take a big salad bowl, add a handful of greens then top with shredded chicken, eggs, ripe avocado, crispy bacon bits.
Toss with the delicious lemon dressing, and that’s it. That’s it! Your healthy chicken salad is ready to devour.
Serve topped with fresh parsley or coriander and with some seeds crackers for double crunch!
How to Serve Chicken Salad
This avocado bacon salad is extremely versatile, packed with protein that can be served in other ways than just plain. Here are a few ideas of how to serve this delicious chicken salad:
- A filling for Lettuce Wraps
- Making a keto chicken sandwich with easy 90 seconds bread.
- As a main dish or as a side dish
How to Store Low Carb Chicken Salad
Meal prepping is a great way to save time while still enjoying homemade keto meals. This chicken salad is perfect for making in advance and even tastes better a day after as flavors develop.
To keep it fresh for longer don’t add the avocado and greens. You can assemble the salad just before serving or in the mooring to take to work for lunch!
Although lemon juice prevents the avocado from browning, I love my avocado green and freshly chopped.
Store it for up to three days in an airtight container, but it’s best served fresh.
