    The Big Cheese's Note:

    This is an unusual and delicious chicken salad that is super easy to make. I love it on some loose lettuce leaves or inside a croissant. I use two large boneless chicken breasts to get the 2 cups of cubed meat. My Aunt Gladys of Glendale, CA made this for me several years ago and I have been making it ever since. My friends have been begging me for the recipe and now here it is. Enjoy!

    1. 1
      Cook your chicken breasts as you usually do until they are completely done.
    2. 2
      I bake mine in the oven at 350° for 30 minutes.
    3. 3
      Cool and cut into bite-sized cubes.
    4. 4
      Marinate the cubed cooked chicken breast meat in the Catalina dressing in a ziplock bag overnight in the refrigerator.
    5. 5
      The next day, add the celery, green onion, parsley, curry powder, mayonnaise and toasted almonds.
    6. 6
      Gently fold in the mandarin oranges.
    7. 7
      Serve over loose Bibb lettuce leaves or in a croissant if desired.
    8. 8
      It's good just by itself!

      I found this to be a perfectly acceptable curried chicken salad, but nothing outstanding. I did use canned chicken and I am not a real fan of Catalina dressing (too much sugar), so there should be no slight to Aunt Gladys taken.
