Curry Apple Chicken Salad…

So I told you guys I had two new favorite recipes I was excited about a couple of posts back.  Creamy Zucchini was one, and this Curry Chicken Salad is the other.  I get so excited about new staple recipes! Anyway, I read about this from, a site that I love, but think she actually got it from, another great site.  Regardless, this Curry Chicken Salad and the flavors together were A-mazing!  Alice loved it so much she ate it for breakfast. And Scott was licking the bowl of what little he got (you gotta be quick around here!).  I hope you like it!

Here’s what you need:

Curried Apple Chicken Salad

  • 1/2 cup Paleo Mayo (or a good quality mayo like Sir Kessington’s)
  • 3/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 medium lime or lemon
  • 1 small apple, cored and diced small (loving Pink Crisps lately)
  • ½ cup cilantro leaves, diced
  • 2 scallions, diced
  • 1.5 lbs cooked chicken breast
  • ¼ cup toasted almonds (or cashews)
Here’s what to do:
1.  Make the paleo mayo (see here). I saved the other half and used it on a fresh batch of chicken salad today.
2.  Cut your grilled (roasted, baked, slow cooked, etc.) chicken into bite sized pieces.
3.  Next chop your apples, cilantro, and scallions and lemon (or lime) in half.
Now that we can’t get the Honeycrisp apples we’ve been getting some Pink Crisps and they are delicious. We got a perfect batch of organic ones at TJ’s and they were crunchy, sweet, and tart.
4.  Pour into a large bowl and squeeze lemon juice over it all.
5.  Add in curry, cinnamon, salt and pepper and mix all together.
6.  Then add nuts (roasted or raw) if desired at the end or in individual bowls.
 And enjoy!

 Have a great weekend!
  • Melanie - Yum if I win the lottery, I’m just going to pay you an enormous amount of money to be my personal chef!ReplyCancel

  • Cheryl - I’m making this Tuesday night!!ReplyCancel

  • marla - Looks awesome!! Can you come make the mayo for me?!ReplyCancel

  • Shannon - Do you use dry mustard in your mayo?ReplyCancel

  • Shannon - Are most of your recipes 4 servings, is this one? Do you think this will keep for a couple days….my husband won’t eat mayo so I’ll be the only one eating it??ReplyCancel

    • landriav - Hey Shannon. It will keep a few days. Also your hubby might like the mayo since it’s not like the traditional stuff. Just don’t tell him it’s in there…of course unless you want more for yourself! 🙂 It does serve 4 I would think but it does not last long over here so think you’ll be fine.ReplyCancel

  • Chris Colwell - Another fabulous recipe Lan….I made it last night, but didn’t have enough cilantro so I used half parsley – YUM. My husband said this one is a keeper!ReplyCancel

  • Amy - I made this for my packed lunch and it was delicious. I added some cranberries and celery for extra flavor. Great idea, thanksReplyCancel

  • Hannah - Landria,
    We tried this tonight and all really enjoyed it. So fresh, crunchy and full of flavor! We also tried the chopped veggies from Trader Joe’s. We sauteed with olive oil and they were great. Olivia also likes it raw over her salad for her school lunch. Thanks for all the great ideas and recipes.

    • landriav - Wow, Olivia likes it raw. That is impressive. My kids hated it raw and honestly I didnt love it. But we love it sauteed with some butter. Mmmm, we had it again tonight! So glad y’all liked this salad!! It is one of our staples for sure! Hope you guys are doing well! Thanks for commenting!ReplyCancel
