I just watched Ina make this on her show this morning so I'm glad I found the recipe on here! I don't keep chutney so I just used apricot preserved and I think it did the trick. If you don't want to go to all the trouble with whole chickens just use the frozen breasts...saute them in curry powder and it's even easier! YUM!Reply
This chicken salad is fantastic. Sooooo yummy. Made it 2 nights in a row with Ina's panzanella. First of all, you make the dressing and add to make chicken moist. So you could double, triple that recipe. I didn't make the all the chicken used in recipe. I used golden raisins and regular purple raisins. Also great on ritz crackers. I also didn't use the cashews. I did use major grey chutney. LindaReply
