Savouring Saturday: Old School Curried Chicken Salad Sandwich

Sometimes, the only thing that hits the spot is a classic!  If you are looking for something to do with left over chicken or a scrumptious rotisserie chicken, look no further.  chickencurryIt’s crazy simple.  Just pile up your shredded chicken in a medium sized bowl.  It can be cold or warm…just not hot (unless you are totally into the messiness of hot mayo!)

DSC_3585Add a 1/2 cup of raisins to your chicken.

DSC_3586Now, add in a 1/4 – 1/2 cup of mayo (depends how creamy you like your sandwich).

DSC_3587Then add in a teaspoon of curry powder.

DSC_3588Finally, my secret ingredient….a tablespoon of some nice and spicy French Dijon mustard.

DSC_3593Last step, add 1/2 a diced onion.  Oh, and don’t forget some cracked pepper and a good dose of salt (remember: chicken LOVES salt).  Stir away!

DSC_3591I decided to make my tummy happy, so I piled my curried chicken salad high on some romaine spears and some gluten free bread.  However, this would make a killer salad, piled up on some crunchy greens and topped with a drizzle of your favorite crisp vinaigrette!

Bon apetit peeps!  And happy Saturday!
