Sweet and Savory Curry Chicken Salad

Allison Hazell


This always gets rave reviews. I have been asked to make this for graduations, showers, and birthdays. It has such a unique flavor and is addicting. It makes a beautiful presentation on a large platter with crumbled bacon and fresh parsley on top. 1 hour seems like a lot of prep time, but that is really just the time it takes for the chicken to cool in the broth. Very easy!
