A few nights ago I had some friends over for dinner & was looking for a simple/healthy-ish dessert. I remembered just a few weeks earlier, my boyfriend’s mom & I made homemade, dark chocolate nut clusters. They were delicious, but I wanted to put my own spin on them & figured dinner with friends would be the perfect opportunity.
My sister often raves about using her slow cooker to make homemade chicken stock. As delicious as it sounds, I never thought making stock from scratch would be worth it – since it’s a cheap grocery store item and I never remember to save chicken bones. As I’ve been cooking with rotisserie chickens quite a bit, I figured it’d be a great time to take advantage of both the bones/carcass and my slow cooker.
There’s a time and a place for mayonnaise. Typically it’s lunchtime, mixed into a chicken or tuna salad. I decided to do something healthy and unique by creating a chicken salad using avocado as the binder.
