Here’s a quick and easy recipe for curried chicken salad. The curry powder adds a kick and a punch to your average chicken salad. The grapes and apple add a delightful sweetness and the slivered almonds give this salad a wonderful crunchy texture. This recipe is great for when you have leftover cooked chicken. We love Costco’s Rotisserie chicken because it’s so moist and tender. I ended up using the leftover rotisserie chicken to make this curried chicken salad.
4 cups cooked diced chicken breast or thigh
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 tablespoon lemon juice
¼ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup plain yogurt
¼ cup red grapes, chopped into halves or quarters
¼ cup apple, chopped into bite-size pieces
¼ cup toasted almond slivers
1 stalk celery, chopped
1) Mix all ingredients into a bowl. You can substitute the mayo completely with yogurt if you’d like a healthier alternative. I like to do half mayo, half yogurt.
2) Serve on your favorite bread or you can eat it as a salad by itself.
