Fly Feet Running - 21 Day Challenge Recipe


1 pound cooked chicken, chopped
¼ red onion, minced
1 small carrot, minced
1 stalk of celery, minced
½ cup homemade mayo
¼ cup Frank’s Hot Sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste
Butter lettuce or iceberg lettuce
Chopped green onions, to garnish

Homemade Mayo Ingredients

2 egg yolks
1 cup of light olive oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
4 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 pinch of salt


Make the homemade mayo

  1. Place the egg yolks, 1 tsp of the lemon juice, the mustard and the pinch of salt in a bowl or in the bowl of your food processor or blender
  2. Blend everything together and slowly add the oil. An emulsion will eventually start to form and you’ll be able to pour in the oil more quickly. Your mayonnaise should be quite thick when all the oil is incorporated and you can then add the remaining lemon juice and blend it in with the mayonnaise
