I served this at New Year's Eve and no one touched it. Altho I like curry, it is a luminescent yellow which I think scares people away. I also think the cream cheese makes it too gummy and heavy - I would rather have it with a little mayo a/o sour cream.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened (low fat OK)
  • 1 cup chicken, finely minced (Swanson canned chicken works well, but this is great for using leftovers)
  • 34 cup slivered almonds
  • 13 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons mango chutney, large pieces minced
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder (you can use more if you wish)
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • shredded coconut and chopped parsley (to garnish)


  1. Combine all ingredients except for the garnishes.
  2. Chill well, at least 2 hours, to allow flavors to blend.
  3. Mound on a serving plate and cover with coconut and parsley.
  4. Serve with your favorite cracker.
  5. There are rarely leftovers, but if there are, this makes a pretty decent spread for a toasted bagel.
