Curry Chicken Salad is a flavorful twist on classic chicken salad! This chicken salad recipe is made with shredded chicken and in a creamy curry dressing.
When it comes to lunches, chicken salad is always at the top of my list. Whether you serve it on top of salad greens, on crackers, or my favorite, bread, chicken salad is always a winner.
I’ve made Creamy Dill Chicken Salad, Moroccan Chicken Salad and Lemon Pepper Chicken Salad and now, Curry Chicken Salad. Like the others, this recipe uses pre-cooked shredded chicken so it is the perfect way to use up that leftover rotisserie chicken you’ve got laying around.
Literally two steps! How easy is that?
STEP #1: Whisk together the ingredients for the dressing.
STEP #2: Fold in the chicken. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or so until the flavors meld. Serve with on bread, with crackers, in lettuce leaves or on top of salad greens.
If you want to add a little sweetness, dried cranberries or grapes are always a great option. For crunch, try adding sliced almonds or celery.
This Curry Chicken Salad is great to make a day in advance too because the longer the flavors have to meld, the more flavorful it is!

Any time I want to make something tasty that I don’t have a recipe inscribed in my head for, I always come to your website. I love, love, lovethe recipes that you share. The curry chicken salad was Mmmm Mmmm good. I left out the nuts and cranberries, bit that was the only thing I left out. This was so tasty and satisfied my curry craving. I put it on a tomato basil tortillas with some fresh baby spinach and made a roll. Delicious!!!

What a lovely sandwich, and congrats on the new home. Been there, done that, several times. Once, when changing apartments in the same building, the super brought us plates for lunch: bologna sandwiches and potato salad. It was the thought that counted.
