I love chutney in chicken and turkey salad that has been smoked, so I grilled my chicken and also my pineapple before adding to the salad. This salad has lots of nice texture and a delicious flavor. I enjoyed mine inside some pita bread. Thanks for sharing. Made for PRMR tag game.

I liked this unique take on chicken salad. The mango chutney and lime add a really nice Indian flavor, but it's not overpowering. I put this in a wrap with baby arugula and it was enjoyed by all. I'd love to try a vegetarian version... maybe with chickpeas? Just an idea I had while eating it. [Made & Reviewed for PRMR]

We really enjoyed this yummy chicken salad. I don't think I've ever had a chicken salad with lime rind &/ or juice in it. It made for a nice change from my usual chicken salad. I used a rotisserie chicken and only about 8 1/2 oz. of pineapple. Also, I used carmelized onion and pepper chutney, and added some fresh ground pepper. I love curry powder in chicken salad so I was very generous with the curry powder, using about 1 1/2 - 2 teaspoons. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe.
