Avocado and Chicken Salad with Pomegranates and Brown Rice


This simple chicken salad provides a wonderful contrast of flavours and textures. Baked avocado might sound odd, but it’s so delicious, particularly when paired with crisp pomegranate seeds and mildly chilli-spiked chicken. It’s more filling than it looks, so will serve four people as a light main or two hungrier people – by all means scale up the chicken and avocado depending on your audience.
