Notes

Meal prep instructions:  Follow the recipe instructions but don't cut the avocado or hollow out the center. Just add the chicken with the mayo and rest of the ingredients and separate it into individual meal prep containers. Put an avocado in your lunch and when you're ready to eat you can halve it and scoop the insides into your prepped chicken salad and add the rest inside the avocado.
To make homemade mayo: Add 1 egg, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, 1 tsp brown mustard, ¼ tsp salt and ¾ cup light tasting olive oil in a tall jar/cup and mix with immersion blender for 20-30 seconds. Can also use a traditional blender.
