Marcus Samuelsson: Curry Chicken Salad Recipe

May 23, 2015

6093283421_eb09a14473Just off the Harlem EatUp Marcus Samuelsson asks, how often do you have leftover chicken that you don’t know what to do with? At those moments, a boring chicken salad may look like your only option. Not necessarily the case! Why not spice up that ordinary chicken salad with some exotic flavors and fruits?

In this Curry Chicken Salad, we’ve replaced the fatty mayo with Greek yogurt to cut the extra fat and sodium; so all that is left is the wonderful flavoring of spice and fruit. It’s so easy to make and goes well as a sandwich, served on lettuce for a full salad, or just as is
