1 large ripe avocado

1/2 cup diced rotisserie chicken

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

2 tablespoons diced celery

2 tablespoons diced red onion

1 tablespoons lemon juice plus 1 teaspoon lemon zest

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill plus 2 sprigs for garnish

Salt and pepper


  1. Halve the avocado and remove the pit. Using an ice cream scoop or dessert spoon, carefully scoop out some avocado to double the size of the hole left by removing the pit. Roughly dice the scooped out avocado and place in a medium bowl. Add the chicken, mayonnaise, red celery, onion, lemon juice, lemon zest and chopped dill and combine well so all the ingredients are well distributed.
  2. Place half the chicken salad mixture in the cavity of each avocado half. Garnish each with a sprig of dill.

Cook’s Note

If assembling ahead of time, leave the avocado whole until a few hours before serving.
