It has some good protein, but it also has mayo in it.

It would be ok to have every once in a while, but in moderation. It is better for you than most fast food though.

You can make your own though and use light mayo.

nicely said. Do what you can to find out the nutrition facts before you eat anything. sometimes i fall into that mistake. like ill think shredded chicken sandwiches are great til i find out they are loaded in butter. (it always pays to know). that was just an example

Usually the Chicken Salad from stores use the cheap mayo in tubs with high fat content. And they are pretty liberal when using it too. I'd stay away from it if you're trying to cut. You can make your own with reduced fat mayo but watch out for the sugar content in reduced fat as well!
