Mango and Avocado Smoked Chicken Salad

This is one of my go-to meals for a quick, simple and tasty weekend lunch or dinner. Smoked chicken, mango and avocado taste sublime together, with fresh crunchy vegetables and a sweet chilli citrus dressing.

You can either buy smoked chicken or you can smoke your own using my method/recipe here (with no preservatives or additives). Failing that, just use left over roasted chicken – still delicious! Check out the video below to see how I do it – it really is less complicated than you might think, and the flavour is incredible! I much prefer to smoke my own chicken, as the supermarket version is often loaded up with preservatives and additives.
