Quick and Easy Curried Chicken Salad

Posted in Chicken, Salads at 8:45 pm by Sheila OConnell

This recipe is from a book called “The 150 Healthiest 15-Minute Recipes on Earth”.  Most of the recipes take me about 30 minutes, but I am notoriously slow at doing everything.  I used Perdue frozen pre-cooked grilled chicken strips for the chicken (just thaw in microwave or frig) but you could also use rotisserie chicken.  I suppose it would be possible to cook an actual chicken, but who does that any more??

Ingredients:
1/3 cup plain lowfat yogurt
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 or 2 tbsp honey (I used 2 tbsp)
1 tbsp curry powder
3 cups cooked chicken, diced
2 cups chopped green apple (about 1 large apple)
2 stalks celery, diced
1/3 cup dried unsulfured apricots, chopped  (I couldn’t find any apricots without sulfur, and I try to avoid sulfur.  So I used golden raisins instead)
1/2 cup sliced almonds

Steps:
In a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, mayo, honey and curry powder until smooth and well-blended.  Gently stir in the chicken, celery, apples, apricots and almonds.

That’s it!  It’s good with a simple side salad of greens dressed with vinaigrette.  And corn bread.
