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!

This is a wonderful chicken salad. Apple and grapes add freshness to the dish. We love the addition of coleslaw dressing mix to the salad. It adds a touch of sweetness and makes the chicken salad extra creamy. This would be perfect for a light lunch or snack. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Fabulous Chicken Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Place chicken breasts in a large pot with chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until chicken breasts are thoroughly cooked.
  2. Cool slightly and then either shred or cut into small chunks.
  3. Meanwhile, mince the celery and onion. Quarter the grapes. Dice the apples.
  4. Mix the mayonnaise and coleslaw mix together. Fold in the chicken and all the prepared ingredients along with the curry powder. 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).
  5. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving to allow flavors to blend. Keep refrigerated.
