No Mayo Chicken Salad Stuffed Peppers
Move over sandwiches. Chicken salad is in the house! Err…or the lunchbox. You get what I mean. It’s another back-to-school season and as always, my daughter continues to be the most challenging when it comes to making school lunches. PB sandwiches are BO-ORING (said in her emphatic whine tone). She’d rather have an avocado and some chicken wings. But guess who’s NOT bringing a hot gourmet lunch into school every day?
So finding a way to combine her love of chicken and avocado in a mom-approved school lunch – BOOM. Chicken salad. We are saying goodbye to boring sandwiches with these No Mayo Chicken Salad Stuffed Peppers and a mom hack that makes prep during the morning rush a BREEZE. Find out how to step up your chicken salad to Power Your Lunchbox this back-to-school season.

What’s great about this recipe is that it takes leftovers from dinner the night before and puts them to WORK! No wasted food, easy prep the night before, happy little tummy, and a seriously delicious flavor combo that has my kids believing that this “healthy” lunch is so much more. I mean – bite sized stuffed sweet peppers! How adorable are they?
And no guac goes to waste either when you mix up the fun with WHOLLY® GUACAMOLE minis. A perfect substitute for mayo, this creamy and flavorful base takes this no mayo chicken salad to another level.
