Curried Chicken Salad

Whenever I find myself craving something a little different, I turn to this curried chicken salad. It never ceases to please.

Packed full of tender bites of chicken, chewy raisins and crunchy almonds, it’s full of sweet and zesty flavors and competing textures that compliment each other well.

The recipe makes just enough chicken salad for one, which works out perfectly if you have leftover chicken and only yourself to feed. If not, the recipe can easily be doubled or tripled.

You can eat this chicken salad in a sandwich, a pita, a wrap or over salad greens.

Or off a fork. . .

If you’re anything like me it’s a recipe you will find yourself turning to again and again to spice up your lunch routine.
