Curried Chicken Salad with Fruit and Pecans

Elegant and rich with a creamy, buttery texture, this is the best chicken salad I've ever eaten! The original recipe was served at Yankee Peddler's Tea Room in Missouri and I've adjusted to taste. This is an excellent chicken salad for croissants, or serve on a bed of greens with melon and fruit on the side for a wonderful summer meal.

    Delicious! I used Penzey's sweet curry powder and kewpie mayo. Omitted the apple and used few more grapes.. And the meat from a whole chicken that I used to make broth. Perfect chicken salad!

    Wonderfully different salad, loved the mild curry flavour with the fruits and the crunch of the nuts. I scaled back for 2 serves and used 1 large chicken breast (375 grams) which I poached and made up as per recipe which was plenty for 3 of us with a simple green salad on the side. Thank you Denise!, made for I Recommend tag game and recommended by poammy owl.

    Yum is right! I used thighs as that was what I had on hand, but otherwise followed the directions. Thanks for sharing!

    This is in our summer food rotation - I use light mayo and substitute skim milk in place of the butter. It's a favorite for us!
