CURRIED CHICKEN SALAD
Never enough variations on this theme…
This one is not spicy, just mellow and sorta sweet with the crispy almonds, and succulent grapes. The flavors get more pronounced as it rests, so making it ahead is always nice.
Wrapped up in some buttery lettuce leaves or on a whole grain roll for you family, it’s very filling and full of protein.
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Curry powder (I use the sweet yellow from Penzey’s)
Zest and Juice of half a lime
2 teaspoons sugar-free honey, agave nectar, or honey
Pinch of garlic powder
Salt & pepper to taste
2 cups diced, cooked rotisserie chicken
1/2 cup quartered grapes
1/4 cup diced red pepper
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
1 stalk celery chopped
In a large bowl combine the mayonnaise, curry powder, lime zest and juice, sugar-free honey, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. Stir in the chicken, grapes, red pepper, almonds, and celery. Mix well, cover and chill for at least 1 hour. Makes 4 servings.
