Made with just a few ingredients, and it’s also low-carb, gluten-free and Keto. I have so many chicken salad recipes here on Skinnytaste because it’s on of my favorite things to make ahead for lunch, from this Classic Chicken Salad, Cilantro Chicken Salad, and Chicken Waldorf Salad, to name a few.

I usually make this particular chicken salad when I have leftover rotisserie chicken and I’m not in the mood for mayonnaise. This is especially great end of summer when I have tons of basil in our garden and fresh tomatoes. I love the flavor of the basil with the lemon in this salad, its so fresh and light.

Variations and Tips:

  • You can swap the basil for peppery baby arugula or a mix of your fresh garden herbs like chives and parsley.
  • This can be eaten cold or room temperature.

To Meal Prep:

If you want to make this ahead for a meal prep lunch, cut the avocado just before you’re ready to eat. You can also make this in a jar my combining the olive oil and lemon juice at the bottom with the avocados in the dressing, this should keep them from browning. Then top with chicken, then tomatoes.

Refrigerate up to 4 days.
