Tangy avocado chicken salad pita recipe

Tangy avocado chicken salad pita recipe

Ready in 15 minutes
Prep time: 10 minutes
Makes: 4 to 6 sandwiches


  • 1 avocado
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 4 pitas or 6 mini pitas
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, cubed


1. Slice open your avocado, carefully remove the pit and then use a small, sharp knife to score the flesh. Now use a small spoon to scoop out those avocado cubes.

2. In a large bowl, mix all your ingredients (expect the pitas) together. Be gentle so the avocado keeps some of its shape. Taste for seasoning. If you’ve got time to cover the salad for half an hour the flavours will deepen.

3. Slice open your pitas and use a spoon to stuff them with salad.
