What to do with leftover roast chicken from the night before?
Make chicken salad!
I make so many variations of chicken salad, depending on the season.
I had leftover grapes from the roasted butternut squash w/ grapes recipe, so I decided to make my curried chicken salad.
It's great on whole grain bread or just out of the bowl!
Stacey Snacks Curried Chicken Salad:
~ leftover chicken, torn up or diced (or 4 cooked boneless chicken breasts)
~ handful of seedless red grapes, halved
~ handful of walnuts, toasted
~ 1/4 cup of minced red onion
~ 2 celery ribs, sliced thin
~ 2 tbsp Hellman's Mayonnaise
~ 1 tbsp of mango chutney
~ t tbsp of curry powder
~ salt and pepper to taste
~ fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. You can omit the chutney if you like.
If you like it stronger, then you can add more curry powder.
If you have no grapes, then raisins are a good substitution. I have used pecans instead of walnuts.
There really are no rules (except NO MIRACLE WHIP allowed!!!).
