Chicken salad is a great meal any time of year but we especially love it in winter when deliciously crisp apples are in season. When combined with a few other simple ingredients you probably already have on hand – like sweet raisins, curry powder, orange – this dish just sings!
Many curried chicken salad recipes contain a scoop or two of Major Grey’s mango chutney (which we love!), but it’s not a common pantry item in many homes. To make up for the sweet and spicy flavor of the chutney we used the zest and juice of an orange along with a pinch of powdered ginger, both of which added a nice zip and zing to this delicious chicken salad!
Serve the salad atop a bed of your favorite greens or as a sandwich for lunch or dinner.
