This was yummy. A different option from regular chicken salad. I also used less curry...added to taste. All the flavors really come together the next day too!
i have made this recipe many times. a few suggestions: DO NOT use the full 3 tbsp of curry. use about 1 tbsp and then add as you go, according to taste. also, the sauce is a lot for the amount of chicken, so either add more chicken or half the sauce. otherwise it will end up soggy. the servings says its for 6 people. it serves more like 10. i serve this with the sweet hawaiian rolls and its a perfect combination. i hope this helps.
I made this recipe again with a lot less curry powder and it came out delicious. The very first time making this I went by the recipe and used the full 3 TABLESPOONS! Yikes! My curry powder is rather potent, so I just used about 2-3 teaspoons the second time around. My main suggestion for everyone trying this recipe is to add a little curry at a time and taste it. My curry powder is McCormick brand and just needs a little. Some other milder brands, you could use more. I love all of Ina's recipes! I havent made one that I havent liked! This recipe is delicious, just dont ruin it the first time like I did and not taste how potent your curry powder is! Otherwise you'll have to throw it all away like I had too! Also dont forget to toast your cashews a little before adding them in, it makes a big difference!
Pink, Ina mentioned in this episode that the amount of curry powder was determined by the type of curry powder you use. She suggested a sweet powder. I myself used a medium powder and used 2 tblspns and it was fabulous. But I'll admit, I do love curry. Try using something mild like a korma perhaps? The recipe is absolutely worth trying again, honestly. Maybe even try using paste instead of powder and that way you can be more accurate about exactly how much of a curry flavour you wish to obtain. I saw this recipe today and couldnt wait to try it out. As the mixture was marinating in the fridge, I had friends call around unexpectedly so I offered my "new" recipe to them and all four of us sat around munching away. Everyone loved them so much so that I've been asked for the recipe. So go on, try it again and see how you fair out. Its just too tasty not to :)
Great recipe. I saw her prepare it on TV and was really happy to see it already listed here. I buy the rotisserie chicken at the grocery store, but other than that follow the recipe exactly.
