This has gotten rave reviews at family picnics in the past. It is a refreshing change from the standard meat-salads used for sandwiches and is relatively easy to make. Pita pockets are the recommended "serving implement" but serve it up however you wish.

OMG!!! This sandwich is awesome! There was a party in my mouth. Since it was low calorie, I was able to get full.

I just love curried chicken salads, and this was a great variation. I used fat free yogurt, the chicken option, the red pepper option, and the cilantro. I omitted the salt (personal preference). Delicious! I served half in buns and half over spinach leaves and both methods were immensely enjoyed. Thanks for sharing! ZWT6

I love the combination of the cilantro and the curry powder. I made 1/2 a recipe and it made 3 very generous servings. I also used only yogurt instead of mayo (a substitution I normally make.) I will be making this again :-) For ZWT6 N.
