Curried Chicken Salad

I whipped this up other day and it was so delicious that I had to share. I did not invent the idea of Curried Chicken Salad but, this recipe is a Domestic Life Stylist recipe. If you have been a reader here for a while then you already know that  the recipes that I put on this blog are all my own. If I am trying someone else’s recipe, I will be sure to let you know. 🙂 If you like fruit in your chicken salad, you can try adding  grapes or dried cranberries to this. It’s yummy either way.

      And even better the longer it sits in the refrigerator.

    Hi! This looks great! Do you think it would work with chicken breast, or is it better with chicken thighs? I might make this and put it over salad — this dish would work well with my husband’s no red meat, no carbs diet. Thanks for posting!

      Definitely! The cooking time will be slightly less but still delicious all the same.

        Good to hear! I am glad that the recipe can be made with chicken breast, too.
