  • 1 avocado pitted, skin removed
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 2 chicken breasts cooked, diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper finely diced
  • 1 stalk celery diced small
  • 1/2 red onion finely diced (optional)
  • 2 cucumbers
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Add avocado and lemon juice to a bowl and mash together to form a smooth consistency.
  • Add diced chicken, bell pepper, celery and onion (if desired) to the mashed avocado and mix thoroughly.
  • Peel the cucumber in 4 evenly spaced strips. Cut the cucumbers into 1 inch pieces. Take a spoon and slightly remove the seeds from the middle leaving the bottom intact.
  • Scoop the chicken avocado mix into the cucumber cup. Season with salt and pepper.


Kid-Friendly Tip: Peeling the cucumbers skin helps with garnishing the appetizer and reduces the bitterness that some children associate with this vegetable.
Simplify It: Stressed about time? Just use pre-made guacamole and pre-cooked rotisserie chicken. Cut the breast from the chicken, remove the skin, and chop small. Then toss with the guacamole. A lot of stores also sell pre-diced vegetables. Can’t find red-bell pepper and celery? Use pre-cut onion and celery mix instead.
