Whether you’re looking for a delightful lunch option, a refreshing side dish, or a light and flavorful main course, this curry chicken salad is the perfect answer. Try serving it over a bed of mixed greens for lunch. This easy recipe combines juicy grapes, crunchy walnuts, and tender chicken in a creamy curry dressing.

  • 6 Boneless Chicken Breasts full cooked
  • 1 Cup Mayonnaise If your chicken salad is too dry, add two tablespoons of mayonnaise or until you get the right consistency.
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Walnuts
  • 1 Cup Green Seedless Grapes chopped or cut in quarters
  • 1 TBSP Curry Powder
  • 1/4 TSP Salt
  • 1/4 TSP Black Ground Pepper
  • 1/2 TSP Celery Powder Option: You could add 1/4 cup of chopped celery.

While your 6 boneless chicken breasts are baking, you can cut up the green seedless grapes and walnuts. If the grapes are large, I will cut them in half and then again (quarters). It is a personal preference to chop these items.

You can cut the chicken into cubes or shred. To shred, add the slightly warm chicken breasts to the bowl of a KitchenAid Mixer. Beat with paddle until the chicken is shredded. It is very quick.

In a large mixing bowl with chicken, add all of the ingredients and mix well. If the chicken salad is a little dry side, you can add more mayonnaise until your desired consistency. I tend to add two tablespoons at a time. I have found that chicken breast sizes in a pack can vary. Therefore, the amount of mayonnaise may vary as well.
