Curried Chicken Salad

September 10th, 2012

Leftover chicken meat from home-roasted or store-bought rotisserie chicken* can be transformed into something new and wonderful. Curry powder and mango chutney gives this salad a sweet yet spicy kick, and the bell pepper and green onions add a nice crunch.

*Instead of chicken, you can use potatoes as a vegetarian option!

  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds

 

Dressing:

  • 3 Tablespoons mango chutney**
  • 3 Tablespoons low fat mayonnaise or salad cream

Add chicken into a medium size salad bowl. Toss in bell pepper, green onions, raisins, and almonds.
