Curried Chicken Salad
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!!!).
This is the perfect dish for Election Day. Happy Voting!
PS...I am astonished that none of the food bloggers have even mentioned this momentous day.
Love your salad... I haven't made a curried chicken salad in a while but I love them. Your recipe is perfect with the crunchy bits of walnut, juicy grapes and the added mango chutney. I'm trying it this week. Thanks!
Happy voting day! I went in this morning and the polls were not busy. I hope voting goes smoothly on your side. A bientot!
