We all LOVE chicken salad on croissants in my house. Over the years, and with my children and husband as my taste-testers, I have come up with this recipe which has a secret ingredient that adds a great taste...curry powder!

We love the addition of coleslaw to this salad... It makes it extra creamy and delicious. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Fabulous Chicken Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Place chicken breasts in large pot with chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until chicken breasts are thoroughly cooked. Cool slightly and then either shred or cut into small chunks.
  2. Meanwhile, combine minced celery and onion, quartered grapes, diced apples, mayonnaise, coleslaw maker, and curry powder and mix well. If desired, add salt and pepper to taste. (I do not use any salt in this recipe--only freshly ground pepper; you can also increase the curry powder to 3/4 teaspoon if you wish a stronger flavor).
  3. Fold shredded or cut up chicken into mayonnaise mixture. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving to allow flavors to blend. Keep refrigerated.
