Another Yummy Chicken Salad

Terrible photo but I didn't think of taking one until I was at the end of the bowl.  As in eating right out of said bowl.  Don't judge- you know you do it too!



This chicken salad is actually both gluten free and dairy free. I didn't invent the wheel here. I've been eating this or a version of it for years. Originally posted here, on my new blog.  I'm using the new blog primarily to keep track of my gluten free recipes and topics.  This will remain my blog for everything, including cooking.  I'm not moving.  Just adding a new location to keep my recipes organized.



Ingredients:

* 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed

* 1 medium apple (Granny Smith is my favorite), chopped small

* 1/4 cup dried fruit. (raisins, cranberries, chopped apricots, cherries, etc)

* 1/2 cup mayo

* 3 tbls applesauce

* 1 tbls maple syrup

* 1/2 tsp dried parsley

* 1 tsp curry powder, divided

* 1/4 tsp allspice or cinnamon

* salt and pepper to taste

* evoo spray



Directions:

* Cut up chicken, removing any excess fat. Saute in pan using EVOO spray. Toss in salt, pepper, half the curry powder and towards the end of the cooking time, maple syrup.

* Let chicken cool completely.

* In a bowl, mix mayo, applesauce, remaining herbs and spices, apples and dried fruit (pictured is half golden raisins and half cranberries).

* Add cooled chicken. Toss to coat. Double check for salt and pepper- add more if needed.

* Best if served after sitting in the fridge for at least an hour.

Sounds amazing! I'm a firm believer in the notion that everyone needs a go-to chicken salad recipe. Essential for luncheons and picnics! :)

Looks great! I love chicken salad with fruit in it.

I think it might be able to be made with a chicken substitute.? It has lots of interesting ingredients.

Oh! I'm so glad you posted this recipe! Whole foods doesn't carry this anymore... it only makes curry tofu salad and it's not nearly as delicious!
