Chicken Curry Salad
- 2 cooked (and cooled) chicken breasts shredded
- 3/4 cup mayonaise more if you like your salad extra creamy
- 2 tbsp curry powder
- 1 cup red grapes halved any grapes will do
- 1/2 cup slivered almonds lightly toasted
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 package of bibb or butter lettuce cleaned and dried carefully
- If you are not starting with cooked chicken breasts, place 2 chicken breasts in a 375 degree oven drizzled with a little salt, pepper and olive oil and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until cooked through. Let cool before proceeding to the next step.
- Shred your chicken into small pieces and add to a large bowl
- Now cut your grapes in half lengthwise and add those in
- If your almonds are not toasted already, add them to a small pan over medium heat and lightly toast them (wait until they turn a light brown) stirring often. Let cool
- Add your toasted almonds to your bowl with the chicken and grapes
- add all of your spices and mayonnaise to the bowl and mix well making sure all of your spices are mixed in evenly
- taste for seasoning and add additional salt or curry powder if needed
- prepare your lettuce cups by carefully pulling the lettuce leaves away from the core one at a time making a nice neat stack.
- add a good heaping spoonful of your curry chicken to each piece of lettuce
- place your filled lettuce cups on a large plate and serve immediately
