  • 1 lb. chicken breasts
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt & black pepper
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup stalk celery diced
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon green onion or more
  • 1 tablespoon shallot minced, optional
  • 1 avocado diced, optional
  • 1 head romaine lettuce for serving


  • Place chicken in a large saucepan filled with water; bring to a boil then boil chicken for 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked.
  • Use two forks to shred chicken, then place chicken into a large bowl.
  • Add the salt, pepper, mayo, celery, shallot (optional) and lemon juice to that same bowl, then stir until the chicken is coated.
  • Scoop chicken mixture onto romaine lettuce, then sprinkle with green onions. Add diced avocado and enjoy!

-The recipe recommend boiling the chicken, but you can cook it however you prefer (in a skillet over the stove, in the oven, etc.)
