Hey there! I’ve got an awesome recipe for you: a Healthy Curried Chicken Salad with a delightful blend of flavors. You’ll love it!
To whip up this tasty dish, you’ll need a few things like a large bowl, a Chef’s Knife, and a Cutting Board. Here’s what goes into the magic:
For the dressing, grab ½ cup of plain Greek yogurt (you can choose your preferred type – nonfat, 2%, or full fat), ¼ cup of mayo, 1 tablespoon of curry powder, a teaspoon of lemon juice (you can use white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar instead), a bit of honey (add to your taste), ½ teaspoon of kosher salt, and ¼ teaspoon of coarse ground black pepper. Mix all these together in the bowl until you get a smooth and creamy dressing.
Now, for the star of the show – the salad! Take 2 cooked and shredded or chopped boneless skinless chicken breasts (around 3 cups), 1 cup of diced celery, 1 cup of diced apples, ½ cup of chopped scallions, ¼ cup of raisins, and, if you fancy, ½ cup of toasted sliced or slivered almonds. Toss all these ingredients in the bowl with the dressing until everything is nicely coated.
You can enjoy it right away, but for the best flavor and texture, pop it in the fridge for at least an hour to let the flavors mingle. If you want to add those crunchy almonds, do it before serving, or sprinkle them on top.
Oh, and a quick tip: you can serve this deliciousness with bread, croissants, lettuce, or crackers – whatever tickles your taste buds!
Remember, leftovers can be stored in a covered container for 2 to 3 days, so don’t worry about making too much.
So, there you have it – a delightful, Healthy, Curried Chicken Salad that’s perfect for any meal or get-together. Enjoy!
