cooked skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, chopped
Very easy & delicious recipe. Besides the celery, I added almonds, dried cranberries & red onions and a dash of cumin (in addition to the curry seasoning). I also "marinated" the chicken in vegetable broth to give it more flavor. Everyone loved the final product. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
THIS RECIPE WAS REALLY EASY TO MAKE. YOU REALLY NEEDED TO LIKE THE TASTE OF CURRY THOUGH. SOMEONE SUGGESTED ADDING NUTS SUCH AS CASHEWS OR ALMONDS. THAT MAY GIVE IT THE EXTRA IT NEEDS. I MADE IT ON PITA FLATBREAD.
I reduced the mayo to less than 1/2 a C. --my family prefers to taste more of the ingredience than the mayo. I also added a little more curry and a few dashes of pepper and sprinkled in cashews and quartered red seedless grapes with the celery. I served it cold on croissants. I'll never eat a regular boring chicken salad sandwich again! My husband LOVED it!
Sometimes simple is the best and that's why I love this recipe. The curry powder adds just the right flavor depth to the dressing, the celery adds some fresh crunch, and there you have it, perfect chicken salad! I do use far less curry powder than 2 teaspoons though, 1/8 tsp is plenty I can't imagine 2 tsp. It also needs about a tsp of salt and 1/8 tsp of black pepper. If you're feeling adventurous, try adding some grapes too!
I give this recipe a 4 STAR. It is simple and easy to make, but as others have said it is missing something. I like it sweet, so I added one RED pepper to the mix and also some salt. Very tasty!!
Easy, quick & very tasty!
Just what I was looking for for lunch. Used canned chicken breast & served over lettuce. You could add other things to this but just as it is just wonderful. Thank you!
Made this yesterday for lunch, and though it is simple, it is delicious! In addition to the ingredients listed, I added a bit of lemon juice and also a bit of dijon mustard. Very tasty!
We enjoyed this chicken salad served in a pita on a hot summer night with a side of fresh fruit. Added green onions, almonds & grapes to enhance flavor & texture. Additionally, boiled chicken breasts in chicken broth. I recommend using less mayo. I used 3/4 of what was called for. Make sure to chill a few hours for best results!
