Chicken Curry Salad
This weekend, I catered a small baby shower luncheon in Malibu. Nothing too fancy, just simple and elegant. Overall the party was lovely, and the guests seemed very pleased. They all asked for this recipe, which I had made specifically per the clients request, as I had never had it (or even heard of it!) before. Turns out, its pretty tasty. Enjoy!
4 skinless chicken breasts and thighs, poached, cooled and chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons curry powder
Pinch of turmeric (optional)
1/2 inch piece of ginger, peeled and grated
1/4 cup Major Grey's Chutney (or any other brand of mango chutney)
2 green onions, sliced
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup golden raisins (sultanas)
2 stalks celery, sliced
1/2 cup walnuts and red grapes for garnish
Combine the mayo, curry, ginger, chutney and onions in a large bowl. Adjust seasoning to your taste. Add the raisins, celery and chicken and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate for two hours.
Garnish with walnuts and grapes and serve.
Serves four - six
Today is National Rum Punch Day.
My favorite rum is Pyrat XO Reserve - Planters Gold,
but I wouldn't put it in punch. For punch I would
recommend St. James Royal Amber.
There is a lot more to rum than Bacardi!
