Chicken salad is one of my favorite easy meals, and this twist on the classic recipe is absolutely delicious. This is a great recipe to make in advance for a busy week ahead as a grab and go option.

Feel free to eat as is, or in a butter lettuce wrap.

      Are you using regular mayo or avocado mayo? I thought avocado mayo is the only keto approved.

        Avocado mayo is a great choice due to healthier oils used, however regular mayonnaise is often used as well.
