Curried Chicken Salad
This has become a favorite recipe. Serve over romaine lettuce and you've got a great lunch.
4 to 5 cans white meat chicken (BJs or Costco's brand are my favorites, the 12 oz can), drained and shredded
3 pounds chicken breasts grilled and sliced into thin strips
4 to 6 tablespoons mayonnaise or to desired wetness
Curry powder to taste
A pinch of cayenne
1 apple (any kind) peeled, cored and diced
3 to 4 celery stalks, diced
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, chill. Makes 8 to 10 servings, 23 calories per ounce.
I plan on trying a variation of this with tuna. For some time now I have wanted to buy one of the Costco 4 pound cans of tuna, but what would I do with it? Curried tuna comes to mind--can't wait!
