Curry Chicken Cole Slaw Sandwich

Hidemi Walsh


I got inspired by coronation chicken salad but I prefer light and healthy so added lots of vegies (for crunch too) and olive oil as a substitute for mayonnaise. Not only healthy, but also adding olive oil enhances more flavor and matches with curry as well. Tender chicken, sweet tangy cranberries, nuts and vegetables seasoned with mild cheese curry flavor would play delicious harmony in your mouth!

Take the bowl out and add chickens, dried cranberries, parmesan cheese and olive oil to the bowl. Stir to combine. Add salt and black pepper to taste and mix to combine.
