If the chicken fillet has been frozen, it is necessary that it melts (preferably on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator). In a pot of boiling water, place the meat, after the formation of foam, remove it, drain the broth, rinse the fillet and fill with cold water, when the water boils, reduce the heat, add salt and pepper with peas. Check the readiness of the chicken with a fork when it is well pierced, which means that the meat is ready and it should be removed from the broth and cool.

Step 2: Peel and chop fruit and meat.

Avocado, orange (or mandarin) and kiwi need to be washed, peeled (do not discard the skin of an orange or mandarin, as it is useful for decorating a dish), separate the avocado from the stone, cut into small pieces or straws. Kiwi and orange also need to be chopped, cut the chicken fillet or Narva into thin slices.

Step 3: Mix and season all the ingredients.

Sliced ​​avocados, kiwi, orange, boiled and chopped chicken fillet, as well as pine nuts should be put in a large bowl, mix, add mayonnaise and mix again. Pine nuts can, but not necessarily, be crushed in a mortar first. Cut the skin from an orange or mandarin into thin long strips.

Step 4: Serve avocado salad with pine nuts.
