Ina Garten's Curried Chicken Salad

Saw this on Ina Garten's Back to Basics a few weeks back. Been thinking about it a lot and I finally tried it! It was super yummy! The only change I made was to subsitute dried cranberries for the raisins because we don't like them! :) serve as sandwiches or scoop up with crackers! Enjoy! PREP TIME IS TIME TO ROAST CHICKEN AND COOL. COOK TIME IS TIME TO REFRIGERATE SALAD FOR FLAVORS TO BLEND!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place the chicken breasts on a sheet pan and rub the skin with olive oil. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until chicken is just cooked. Set aside until cool enough to handle. Remove the meat from the bones, discard the skin, and dice chicken in large bite-size pieces.
  3. For the dressing, combine the mayonnaise, wine, chutney and curry powder, and 1 ½ teaspoons salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Process until smooth.
  4. Combine the chicken with enough dressing to moisten well. Add the celery, scallions, and raisins, and mix well. Refrigerate for a few hours to allow the flavors to blend. Add the cashews and serve at room temperature.

Wow - this was incredible! I halved the recipe, using 1-1/2 split chicken breasts. I also used dried cranberries, as suggested, which made this extra-special. The flavor is absolutely wonderful, and tastes like something you'd pay $14.00 a pound for in a gourmet shop! I will be making this often. Thanks for sharing!
