Creamy Curry Chicken Salad

It’s fair to say that chicken and curry just go together.  It really is exceptional though in this fresh and healthy salad, a full meal, for sure.  I use my Vita-mix Blender to mix the creamy curry dressing and place it in the refrigerator to chill a few hours before serving.

Creamy Curry Chicken Salad

Creamy Curry Chicken Salad is best served as a composed salad, so I plan one grilled chicken breast per salad.  All you need to do is wash and chop, (and if you make big salads as often as I do, you’ll love this inexpensive knife) romaine, apples, grapes, broccoli, carrots, squash, avocado, and onions.  Layer them on 4 dinner plates while your chicken is on the grill.

My “Grill Master,” Chas, loves his gas grill.  He keeps it really clean, and preheats it on high.  Before he grabs the chicken, I’ve washed and seasoned, he turns it to medium-low heat, the temperature gage reads 350 degrees.  He grills the chicken for 10 to 15 minutes per side, flipping it only once.  He removes it to a platter we cover and let rest for about 10 minutes.  Before slicing your chicken double check the internal temperature making sure it’s at 165.  Keep in mind that the chicken continues to cook after it comes off the grill.  I slice it on the diagonal, arrange it on top of each salad, drizzle with a little dressing, and garnish with feta cheese.  Don’t you think it’s pretty?

    My partner and I have been training for a hike in one month and we’ve been searching for a good salad that’s both delicious, packed with plenty of protein and perfect as a complete meal rather than a ‘side’!

    I’m so grateful I stumbled on this recipe! We are preparing it next week but we will probably omit the mayo and replace it with yogurt! ^_^

    Love the images, I’m looking forward to reading more of your posts!
