Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF (204ºC) and line a baking dish with parchment paper. Place the chicken breasts in the prepared baking dish and drizzle with avocado oil. Season with Italian seasoning and half the salt. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from the oven and immediately cover with a piece of aluminium foil for at least 10 minutes. Carefully remove the foil and let chicken cool before chopping into cubes.
  2. Spiralize the cucumber using the ribbon blade. If you do not have a spiralizer, use a vegetable peeler or mandoline to create ribbons instead.
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, fresh dill, and the remaining salt together. Add the chopped chicken, and celery to the dressing and mix well to combine. Season with additional salt if needed.
  4. To serve, place cucumber ribbons and top with chicken salad. Enjoy!
