This is one of the recipes that got me through my Whole30 month. I need flavorful, satisfying meals when I am eating healthy otherwise it does not last long. This turkey* Bacon Avocado Chicken Salad is packed with protein!

Lean chicken and nutritious Hass Avocados make this meal nutritious and filling. Fresh avocados are a heart-healthy fruit. They provide naturally good fats, are low in saturated fat, and are cholesterol- and sodium-free. Avocados, which are a fruit although most people think of them as a vegetable, contain less than one gram of sugar per 1-ounce, the least amount of sugar per serving of any other fresh fruit.

While following the Whole30 I ate small amounts of this Bacon Avocado Chicken Salad alone to fill me up. It could also be served in lettuce wraps. Or, serve this on top of a nice big salad.

If you are adding turkey* bacon, just make sure your bacon is Whole30 compliant. I like to add fresh cilantro and  finely chopped jalapeño for extra flavor!

And of course, if you are not following the Whole30 plan, this chicken salad is terrific on soft bread rolls or tortillas. This Bacon Avocado Chicken Salad is still an excellent alternative to the traditional mayo chicken salad.
