I chose this recipe because 1) it was unbearable to cook and I wanted something light and 2) I had some cooked chicken in the freezer to use up. With the cost of dried blueberries ($5 for 1/2 cup)....this salad was nice! If cost is not a factor...then this salad was a 4.5 !! I served this over a 2 huge romaine lettuce leaves and fresh corn on the cob. I used my own recipes for the cooked chicken and chutney (Poached Chicken Breast (Crock Pot) and Mango-Apple Chutney) I had cut the recipe in half and that served 3 quite nicely. Even though the blueberries were really a nice touch, next time, I will might use fresh mango and add some feta cheese.
I original made this recipe from a bag of almonds. I lost the recipe & was going from memory. I am so glad to find it again! If you buy ginger chutney it adds another spicy element. Also I've chopped the chicken finer & made a sandwich out of it... we just LOVE it!
What a great combination of ingredients. The chutney added just the right touch of flavor to the dressing. I also added a sprinkling of crumbled feta cheese when serving. This was a perfect dinner salad!
Hi GaylaJ, I had some dried blueberries that I didn't know what to do with, and came across your recipe...I'm sure glad that I did! This chicken salad is so good with the blueberries...my DH and I had this for lunch today, and it was a real treat. Will be making this again for sure! Thanks....Hazeleyes
I was a little unsure about this recipe at first, but I made it tonight for dinner and it turned out really well. However, I did not have dried blueberries, so I used dried cranberries instead! I'll definitely have to make it again using the blueberries. Thanks!
