If you don’t think you like curry, consider this Curry Chicken Salad your gateway recipe. It's a quick and easy chicken recipe that's great for a light dinner or make-ahead lunch. I was so unsure of these flavors until my friend from college made a version when I was staying with her one weekend. I trust her taste buds and decided to try it and – Um. Yeah. Delish. Hubs was also skeptical about curry chicken salad, but the first time he tried it, he fell in love! If you're looking for an easy chicken recipe, or a way to mix-up leftover or rotisserie chicken, this curry chicken salad recipe is perfect.
Prep time: 15 MinTotal time: 15 Min


  • 2 1/2 Cups Shredded chicken (Meat from 1 rotisserie chicken, or cooked from 1 1/4-1 1/2 lbs fresh chicken)
  • 1 Cup Mayonnaise (Vegan mayonnaise also works great! Just make sure it's not "salad dressing")
  • 1 tbsp Low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Mango chutney
  • 1 1/2 tsp Curry powder (mild, Indian-style or madras)
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/2 Cup Slivered or sliced almonds
  • 1/2 Cup Green grapes, halved
  • 1/2 Cup Celery, finely chopped
  • Hawaiian rolls, wraps or lettuce cups to make sandwiches/wraps


  1. Thoroughly combine the mayonnaise, soy sauce, mango chutney, lemon juice and curry power in a bowl.
  2. Add to the chicken and any optional add-ins and mix to combine.
  3. Serve on Hawaiian rolls for tasty little sandwiches, on your favorite bread or wrap, or in a lettuce wrap. That’s it. It’s that easy.
