Step 1: Chicken and Vegetable Prep

Tip #1 When using leftovers roasted chicken gives a great flavor!

First prep your leftover chicken. Do this by removing from the bone, then using a large knife to chop it up finely.

Next prep you veggies.  Dice up red onions, celery, green onions, and cilantro.  Set aside.  Then take an avocado remove it from the shell and mix it up with cilantro until smooth.
