Chicken salad from the local deli never tends to be as good as homemade, and you also won't get 4-6 servings out of the container you purchased. When making this recipe, don't throw out the leaves on top of the celery stalks. Instead, incorporate them into the salad.

Editor's note: If you don't like avocados or have them handy, place chicken salad in lettuce cups or between bread.
