Healthy Curried Chicken Salad With Apples
This Healthy Curry Chicken Salad With Apples makes a few simple swaps to turn a traditionally unhealthy dish into something both tasty and good for you!
- 1 lbs. cooked chicken breast, (diced)
- 1 Granny Smith apple, (diced)
- 2 celery stalks, (diced)
- 2 green onions, (diced)
- ½ cup cashews, (chopped)
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt (non-fat or regular)
- 1 tbsp. tahini
- 4 tsp. curry powder
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
Combine yogurt, tahini, curry powder, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.
Add chicken, apple, celery, green onions and cashews. Stir to combine.
This salad can be served on its own, as a sandwich, or in a scooped out papaya to give it even more of a tropical feel.
This recipe is for 5 servings of chicken salad.
You will need grilled chicken breasts, which you can either cook right before putting together the salad or a day or two before (you can use my method for cooking the perfect chicken breast).
Once mixed, the chicken salad will stay fresh in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days.
