Delicious Curry Chicken Salad {Perfect weekend recipe!}

DSC_0015 {Today, Brandee is sharing a truly amazing chicken salad recipe. Enjoy!}

My girlfriend and I headed downtown for a day of adventure. As we walked into a cooking class and grabbed our aprons, we were delighted with the aroma wafting in the kitchen. As we began to chop, simmer, and adjust flavors of these amazing recipes we were being introduced to, both of us decided the chicken salad was not only easy to make but also going to be a favorite in our home immediately! For those of you who say curry is not your thing, you must try this before throwing out this amazing spice all together!

I revamped this recipe by adding some of my all-time chicken salad favorites to this already lovely recipe! In India, they eat this meal with pan-grilled flatbread. We love to eat this as a sandwich or place a generous scoop onto a salad. It makes for a lovely luncheon option when feeding the multitudes! At Sally’s Intensives, this is a favorite! All you need is a croissant roll, chicken salad, and fruit and you have a beautiful plate that will wow your guests!

Ingredients 4 boneless skinless chicken breast (you can use a pre cooked rotisserie chicken in a pinch) 1 1/2 cup mayonnaise (may add more if needs more) 4 stalks celery - diced small 1/2 cup green onion - minced 3-4 tablespoons lemon juice 4 tablespoons fresh parsley - minced 4-6 teaspoons curry powder (adjust to taste) 2 tablespoons honey 3 cups of red seedless grapes - halved salt/pepper to taste 1 cup sliced almonds (to sprinkle on top before serving) 8 croissants (optional)

Directions Place chicken breasts in med. saucepan and cover with water by one inch. Bring to simmer and adjust heat to maintain low simmer. Cook for 20 min. or until chicken is cooked through. Drain & let cool. ( drain well or you will have watery salad) Shred chicken into small bite-sized pieces. Mix chicken with remaining ingredients. (Add more mayo or seasoning if needed) Chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Yields: 8 servings

Give this recipe a try this weekend, and "wow" your family with a unique, tasty meal that is perfect for a summer lunch or dinner!
