chicken salad theartmuseMy friend from the east coast relocated out to Los Angeles not too long ago so I invited her over for a "welcome" lunch. I tried this recipe and loved it. Except I originally served it with sourdough bread, which I found to be heavy and overpowering. I made it again and found that it's perfect with a side of pita. Oh, and it's even better with a mimosa! My recipe is slightly different than the one linked. Ingredients: 4 boneless chicken breasts/cutlets, grilled and cubed 1/2 cup chopped celery 1/2 cup diced red unpeeled apple Handful of raisins 1/4 cup chopped pecans Curry powder to taste (I love curry) 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan Pink salt 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper Ground cayenne pepper to taste Mayonnaise to taste (I used about a cup) Preparation: After grilling the chicken, let it cool and dice. Combine the chicken and the remaining ingredients in a large bowl, add mayonnaise. Cover and refrigerate. Serves about 5 people. Don't forget the mimosa and enjoy!
