    Delicious, even without cashews! I set the recipe to 6 servings and used 2 chicken breast halves that had been slow-poached. Thanks for posting!

    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!

    This is a great and easy recipe. I actually subsituted the white wine for white wine vinagar and it turned out great. I also added dry cranberries instead of raisins.

    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. Linda
