One of my favorite leftover chicken recipes is chicken salad.  This Keto Chicken Salad is loaded with avocado and bacon and it’s dressed with olive oil.  I promise you will not miss the mayo…all thanks to that creamy avocado!

I love chicken salad and I always have leftover chicken in the fridge so I can whip up a quick batch.  I usually make my chicken breast in the Instant Pot using this method: Instant Pot Shredded Chicken …but I only season it with salt and pepper.

I sometimes make a whole chicken in the Instant Pot and use that leftover chicken for keto chicken salad.

This time, I didn’t have any leftover chicken, so I just poached 2 large chicken breasts in salted water until they were cooked through.  I then let them cool and cut them into small pieces.

I like to have all of the components for chicken salad to be diced small so everything can be seasoned really well.

I diced my avocado small right in their skin so it wasn’t such a pain!

When I had all of my components ready: chicken, avocado, bacon, celery…I put them all in a large bowl.  Then I topped it all with olive oil, salt, pepper, chives, dill, and lemon juice.

I then just tossed it all together.  I wasn’t gentle because I wanted that avocado to break down a little and mix with the olive oil and lemon juice to make this so creamy and delicious!

A yummy keto chicken salad doesn’t get any easier than that!
