This curry chicken salad is inspired by the Curry Chicken Salad that they sell at Whole Foods, also known as Coronation Chicken, which is a popular and much-loved sandwich filling with the Brits across the pond. In this fun chicken salad, I reduced the sugar by omitting mango chutney (often used in Coronation chicken) and instead used diced fresh mango, which does the same job of offering a little much-needed sweetness (present in their natural sugars).

This recipe will feed two to four people, and makes a great work lunch, picnic option, or light dinner.

Instructions

    1. Toast the almonds in a hot, dry non-stick pan until golden. Set aside.

    3. Dice the cooked (cooled) chicken meat into small chunks and place it into a large bowl. Skinless chicken breasts work well, but if you are cutting up leftovers from a chicken roast, please check for bones.
    4. Add the mayonnaise, curry powder, and raisins. Season with salt and pepper and mix well to combine. If the mixture feels a little stiff, add a tablespoon of water and mix again to loosen it a little.

    5. Spread the salad leaves out on a large serving salad platter and cover them with the curry chicken mixture.
    6. Scatter over the diced mango followed by the crunchy, toasted almonds. Finish with the sliced green onions.
