Yummy! I used leftover rotisserie chicken, homemade mayo, and I did add the curry powder. Used more chicken so I used half a Pink Lady apple. After letting this sit for a bit I added a sprinkle of parm. This is going into whole grain wraps tonight for dinner. Next time I might add some candied pecans. My husband hates traditional chicken salad because he doesn't like the celery, but we love curry, so this is great. Thanks for sharing.
I did make a few changes but I have to say I really enjoyed this recipe! The changes I made were slight but I think they made a huge difference. 1. Double the lemon juice to 2 teaspoons, 2.Use a whole Small green apple (which is like 2 and half times what's called for, and 3. Add one rib of celery. It'll give it a nice crunch and great flavor. But again, awesome recipe! So good.
OK, I gotta admit I was skeptical....chicken, apples, curry powder?? BUT...I had some left over chicken in the fridge and decided to give it a go. WOW, this was great! Loved the flavour of the curry and the hint of lemon....and then the crunchy, tart granny smith apple. Really good!
