  • 2 cups cooked chicken shredded or cut small, from a rotisserie chicken
  • 1 roasted red pepper
  • 3/4 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 stalk celery chopped
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper chopped
  • 1/2 cup pecans chopped
  • 1/2 cup parsley chopped

Notes

Chicken: Use rotisserie chicken to save time. You could also cook your own chicken breast.
Leftovers: Transfer the salad to an airtight container, and place plastic wrap directly over the surface of the salad to prevent the avocados from turning brown. Refrigerate for up to a couple days.
