  • 2 stalks celery petite diced
  • 4 stalks green onion chopped, or 1/4 cup purple onion
  • 1 cup red grape cut in halves or quarters
  • 1 cup lightly candied pecans or normal pecans
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup parsley finely chopped

  • 2 tbsps. honey Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp. sugar optional, if you like it a little sweet

Instructions

  • Shred the chicken and place in a bowl.
  • Chop and dice the veggies.
  • In a bowl, mix together the dressing ingredients.
  • Place everything in the chicken bowl and mix to coat well.
  • Cut and remove pit of the avocados and stuff with the chicken salad.

Notes

  • Use rotisserie chicken to make this recipe super quick!
  • You can use green or purple onion.
  • If you can't get hold of candied pecans, you can use normal ones.
  • If you want to balance out the zest and mustard, you can add a touch of sugar to make the stuffed avocado a bit sweeter.
  • Ideally go for fresh lemon juice, much more flavor!
  • You can either use plain yogurt or Greek yogurt.
  • Make sure to season the avocado, otherwise the avocado can be a bit bland. A touch of slat and pepper go a long way! You can even add a sprinkle paprika, for more flavor.
  • Ideally cut and stuff your avocado just before serving, to avoid the avocado browning.
  • To slightly prolong the browning process, you can rub some lemon juice on the avocados. This helps but not for too long.
  • Make a very thin slice on the rounded bottom of the avocado half, this helps it stand without rolling over. 
  • Garnish with some freshly chopped onion and parsley.
  • If you have any left over avocado, turn them into guacamole!
