I am so sorry that I can't give this recipe six stars! I only had one person that thought it had too much mayo. Okay, here is the very few changes I made. I only added half the worchestershire called for. I didn't have any celery so I added an extra 1/2C of grapes. Next time I will cut the grapes in half. I also added more bacon than what was called for(about eight slices). When I was baking my chicken for this I put my bacon in the oven too. Different pan though. I made my sauce first so it could sit for an hour or so as someone else suggested. Good idea! I served this with Peppy's Pita Bread (on this site). Big hit. Try both recipes.

I liked the curry flavor of this recipe, but I would omit the Worcestshire sauce and decrease the amount of mayo.

A different twist to the standard chicken salad. Everyone loved the curry flavor. I used a pre-roasted chicken from the grocery store and picked off big chunks - big time saver.

I make this ALL the time. It's wonderful. The only thing I change is that I add sliced almonds and avocado chunks. Superb!

After making this once, I will never pay for pre-made salad in a store! This was awesome as it is. Modifications will be a matter of personal choice, but I would second letting the salad sit for a while for the flavor to really build up. I tasted it when made immediately and then after an hour. Wow! The flavor just gets better. I will probable scale back the mayo a little but not much. I think subbing dried currants instead of the grapes would be a nice option.

I have been making this for years now! We LOVE this. I have never used the bacon though. I usually buy a rotisserie chicken and use that as well. I always use 2 tsp curry powder too! This is big favorite around our house! Thanks so much for posting.

Really yummy & easy to make. I added extra curry & lemon juice to enhance the flavor. I also found out letting the dresssing sit for aobut an ohur before putting it on the salad really brings out the curry flavour!

I substituted raisins for the grapes and used twice as much curry and this recipe was fantastic. Very tasty not like the normal bland chicken salad recipes. I loved it.
