Cristina's tip

I love serving this inside of butter lettuce wraps! It’s a great meal prep recipe.

You can also use chicken pulled from a rotisserie chicken — any leftover chicken will be happy to turn into this fabulous salad.

    If I were to eat all four servings it would be 4g of carbs that’s great but 1lb of chicken isn’t that a lot of protein?

    Looks good. Tasty with salt. Probably even better with a little heat from diced jalapeños or chulula, etc. I used canned chicken. Two of us will enjoy this for dinner. and again for lunch or dinner tomorrow.

    Yes, this is 25g protein per serving. 100g protein per meal could be problematic for many.

    Isn’t also the fat and protein analogy a little off? Should I add some bacon to lake this more fat friendly?

    General keto ratios have a little flexibility. Ideally we want 20-25% protein and 70-75% fat, but higher fat is not the issue that higher protein can be.

    This will keep very well for the next day. The avocado may brown a little but that won't affect the taste.

    The opening description states this is a no-cook meal but step 2 of the instructions includes cooking chicken.
    The name includes the word "Salad" and Step 4 of the instructions refers to mixing all the salad ingredients but there are no salad items in the ingredients list.

    You can use rotisserie chicken breasts or even canned chicken to truly make this a no cook meal. Tuna salad and chicken salad are different from garden salads.
