Ingredients
  

  • 227 gms Chicken Breast (boneless,skinless)
  • 1 Avocado (large)
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 4 Spring Onion (sliced)
  • ½ Mango (finely chopped)
  • 4 cups Baby Spinach

Instructions
 

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil. Reduce to a gentle simmer, add the chicken and cover. Let it simmer until the chicken is cooked through, about 15 to 20. Remove the chicken from the pot and cut it into small cubes. Let it cool completely.
  • While the chicken cools, in a large mixing bowl, mash the avocado until only a few small chunks remain. Stir in the lemon juice, olive oil and salt.
  • Fold the red pepper, cucumber, green onion, mango and chicken into the avocado mixture until well combined. Season with additional salt or lemon juice if needed.
  • Divide spinach onto plates and top with chicken salad. Enjoy!

Notes

Leftovers: Keep refrigerated in an airtight container for up to two days.
Meal Prepping: Cook the chicken ahead of time or use leftover cooked chicken from another meal. Mash the avocado and assemble just before serving to prevent the salad from turning brown.
More Flavour: Add minced garlic, fresh parsley, cilantro, black pepper or sunflower seeds.
Vegan:Use chickpeas instead of chicken.
