The first time I had a curry chicken salad was at a Whole Foods in North Carolina. It kind of blew my mind. It was my first experience with anything “curry” and was a whole new flavor sensation to me. I immediately wanted to recreate it and I have finally succeeded!
It’s an easy recipe and the amounts can be adjusted to however much chicken you have. There are always leftovers when I roast a chicken and this is my go-to recipe to transform those leftovers into something tasty.
I’m going to provide rough estimates for the amounts I use for leftovers but definitely play around with this recipe to fit your tastes and for how much you want to make.
Andrea’s Curry Chicken Salad
- 1 Large Chicken Breast, cooked and shredded
- 3 Green Onions, chopped
- 1 Green Pepper, sliced thin
- 1/2C Raisins
- 3/4C Mayo
- 1TBSP Curry Powder (I like Simply Organic)
In large bowl combine all ingredients. Make sure to mix well so the mayo and curry covers everything. It can be served immediately but is best when left to sit for an hour or more.
Eat it on a sandwich, in a wrap, on top of a salad! Or just out of the bowl, like I sometimes do. A little different than your standard chicken salad, curry brings some warmth while that little bit of raisin keeps things sweet. It’s great for lunch during the week or for dinner on a hot summer day. Heck, or even breakfast! No judging here.
Have fun, and remember, always play with your food! Enjoy!
