Calling all avocado lovers! This particular recipe was extremely quick and easy. Very smooth and creamy! This is a great alternative to using mayo in my chicken salad all of the time. The sour cream adds just the right amount of acidity along with the lime. This recipe did call for blending the chicken with the avocado, but I did see the review mentioning that it came out pasty. I have made it with the chicken blended and while I do not mind it, I really enjoy chunks of chicken in my salad, so I opted this time to add it after I have blended all of the other ingredients. I served it along with some brioche sliders and voila! Perfect for a group of friends too. Will continue to make this again and again!

Not very kid friendly. Next time I won't purée the chicken. The consistency was sort of pasty

I really enjoyed this recipe. I used light cottage cheese (blended to make it smooth) instead of the sour cream to keep it light. Delicious!

Good basic recipe, made better when I made the following changes: Used half sour cream, half mayo and cut back on the pepper. Also chopped the chicken into bite size pieces and stirred the dressing in. Was so tasty that I forgot to add the avocado!

I made this and loved it! The only changes I made were using Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, & I used half the amount of pepper (but next time might use even less). I also don't have a food processor, so I kind of chopped the chicken then shredded by hand a little and it turned out just fine. Will definitely be making again!
