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!
