Ingredients

  • 2 cooked chicken breasts
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs
  • 2 tbsp. fat-free mayo
  • 1 tbsp. curry powder
  • Chives or basil (optional)
  • Salt (optional)

Instructions

  • Bake the chicken in the oven at 365 F (185 C) for about 20 min (check with a knife that the chicken is cooked all the way through).
  • Boil the eggs for 8 minutes.
  • Cut chicken and eggs into bite-sized pieces.
  • Mix the mayo with curry powder (I like to use a LOT of curry powder. Start with half a tablespoon and taste before adding more).
  • Combine everything in a large bowl and mix. 
  • Allow to chill in the fridge for at least 10 minutes (it gets even better if you leave it in the fridge overnight).
  • Serve on toast or muffins with chives and a little salt on top.

Notes

This recipe is for four servings of chicken and egg salad.
For perfect hard-boiled eggs, place eggs in a pot and cover with water 1 inch higher than the eggs. Bring the water to a rolling boil, then cook 7-9 minutes over medium-high heat. Transfer to an ice bath for 2-3 minutes to stop the cooking process, then dry and peel.
Curry powder will vary in intensity depending on the brand. I recommend adding half a tablespoon at a time and taste-testing until you reach your desired amount of flavor.
Chilling your salad in the fridge overnight will deepen and intensify the flavor.
You can eat this salad a few different ways. Enjoy it plain with a fork, scoop it up with crunchy veggies, or spread it on top of toast.
This dish will stay fresh for 3-4 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
