Delicious Chicken Chickpea Salad with Avocado

This easy healthy recipe is a creamy chicken chickpea salad recipe with avocado. It’s made with roasted chickpeas (crunchy, spicy and oh so good), juicy chicken, your salad mix of choice and a generous drizzle of a homemade creamy Italian dressing. You can make it with basil, parsley, oregano, parmesan cheese, garlic, olive oil and just a little bit of cream, just like this recipe.

I prepared everything in advance and then just kept it in the fridge stored in airtight containers for a couple of days. That way you can have a mix and match salad ready to go.

You can also add the ingredients to mason jars and keep tightly closed for up to a week in the refrigerator! These make it so easy to grab and go for lunch.

I looooove chickpeas (or garbanzo beans). They are so versatile and so good! I sneak them into my kids’ oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and make a yummy peanut butter cookie dough with them!
