Please, Don’t pass on this one…
At first glance you may want to skip over this one…,because you are not a fan of curry, or of fruit or nuts in chicken salad… or Greek yogurt.. . but once you try it, you will be hooked. You will make it over again; and your friends and family will beg you for this recipe!!
Did I mention, this is possibly the BEST ever chicken salad you will ever eat!
Play around with the quantities of fruit, nuts and veggies. You really cant go wrong.
2-3 boneless,skinless chicken breasts- split. Boil chicken breasts in water seasoned with chicken broth or bouillon and 1/4 tsp yellow curry powder. When cooked through, remove chicken from water to cool while you prepare the salad ingredients. Once cooled, chop into bite-size chunks.

- 1-2 green onions
- 1/2 red apple chopped
- handful of red grapes, sliced OR 1/4 c golden raisins

- 1/4 c plain greek yogurt and “Dollop” of Light Mayo (to start)
- 1/4 tsp (or more to taste) curry powder
- Cayenne pepper (to taste)
- Salt and Pepper.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Add additional yogurt/mayonaise and spices to taste. Cover and refrigerate. Serve over crisp romaine lettuce.
