directions

  • Combine curry, oil, and 1 T lemon juice, pour over chicken, toss to coat, cover and refrigerate 1-2 hours.
  • Heat large nonstick skillet over med heat, add chicken.
  • Cook, stirring regularly, about 3 min (or more). Reduce the heat a bit if the sauce starts to darken.
  • Remove the pan from the heat, let cool while the pasta boils.
  • Boil pasta in salt and water, rinse and set aside. For about the final 2 min of cooking time, add the peas, drain and rinse w/rest of pasta.
  • While pasta cooks, prepare the salad dressing. It is important to have dressing done at same time as pasta, so pasta doesn’t sit w/out dressing too long, as it will clump.
  • In a large bowl, blend minced red onion, mayonnaise, mustard and 1 T lemon juice.
  • Add the curried chicken w/all the sauce out of the pan; whisk to blend.
  • Add pasta and peas, toss to coat and add salt if desired.
  • Serve right away or chilled for later. 8-12 servings.

    Yes, I liked the salad. Felt that 1lb pasta would be too much for the dressing so I decided to cut the pasta in half and was glad I did. I think the salad would benefit from something fresh and/or crunchy. Maybe some pickles, celery stalk, bell peppers or such. Pleased I tried it. Thanks for posting.

    I first saw this recipe in a Penzy's catalog and have used it over and over ever since. My husband and I were never big curry fans but it's probably because we didn't have a recipe to use it in. We do now, and absolutely love this recipe.

    Exellent!! I didn't want to go to the grocery store so I used what I had on hand. I substituted turkey for the chicken and petite frozen peas for the snap peas. It was fantastic. I will definitely be adding this to my permanent recipe collection.

    We really loved this salad. Very creamy and the curry flavor was great! I made it exactly as written except that I forgot to throw the snap peas into the pasta water so I put them in the salad cut in half raw, and it gave it nice crunch:) Thanks for sharing this, it's definitely a keeper.

    This was very good. I especially loved the chicken. I don't normally like snap peas but went with the recipe only cutting them smaller and they gave a great crunch and flavor. Once it was all put together I couldn't really taste the curry so added a tablespoon more (I used Madras curry powder). I used bow-tie pasta. I'd like to try this with more vegetables, like red bell peppers. Thanks for the recipe. Made for Zaar Tag.
