Curried Chicken Salad

I’m glued to the TV every evening watching the Olympics, a treat I haven’t enjoyed since childhood, and so supper is going to be something I can cook beforehand until the closing ceremonies.  And as usual in the heat of the summer I try to make enough for two nights, or cook enough protein to use in two nights’ recipes.  Here’s a good one for leftover chicken.

This recipe was inspired by one my Aunt Beverly posted recently in which she used orange marmalade instead of the mango chutney I’ve always used for curried chicken salad – talk about a frugal alternative! That’s about half the price and I happened to have some in my fridge already 😉 I changed it up a bit by adding all the extra stuff I like in my curried chicken salad.  Sorry for the blurry picture – I’m trying out new camera apps on my phone and this one wasn’t so great.

  • 3 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • 9 celery stalks, sliced (I like my salad crunchy)
  • 3 cups seedless grapes, halved
  • 2/3 cup orange marmalade
  • 1 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp curry
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • Mix the marmalade, mayo, salt, pepper, and lemon juice and set aside.
  • Mix chicken, green onions, celery, and grapes.
  • Add marmalade mixture to chicken mixture and serve over mixed greens.

  1. This looks SO good. I don’t usually make chicken salad because my husband will not eat anything with mayonnaise in it (I still manage to love him, but it’s hard), but I’m going to make this anyway. He can have a frozen pizza that night. Yum.

    1. Do you have my potato salad recipe that doesn’t have mayo? If not I’ll hunt it up for you. My husband LOVES mayonnaise. We buy it in bulk.

      1. I also love mayo. And mustard, and ketchup, and vinegar, which are all things my hubby won’t touch. Seriously, marriage is HARD sometimes. I’d love your potato salad recipe – potato salad is one of my top 5 food groups and I’m always looking for new ways to make it.

  2. I have really been enjoying the Olympics this year, and have both TVs going so I don’t miss anything when I move from first floor to second floor. I haven’t been “cooking” so much as I’ve just been throwing things together.

    Your curried chicken salad sounds really good!
