Curry Chicken Salad Sandwiches
I do not like chicken salad sandwiches, I never have. However, this month my friends at Chicken Farmers of Canada challenged me to make a lunch recipe using chicken and I was stumped.
Yes, I could have made a salad or chicken spring rolls but I wanted something simple and that didn’t require utensils.
The idea of a curry chicken salad sandwich came up when I was debating chicken salad but knew I needed to change it up to make it edible for my tastes.
I was inspired by a curry apple dip I made years ago for a part that had curry and raisins in it. I remember being surprised with the combination and wanted to use those flavors for this simple lunch idea.
What Chicken to Use for Sandwiches
I always cook with chicken breasts, they’re my favorite cut of poultry and they’re easy to deal with.
You could also use chopped up boneless chicken thighs for a more tender meat and a more economical option.
As always, when shopping for chicken I look for the Raised by a Canadian Farmer logo. Purchasing chicken with this logo ensures the following:
- It supports our local economy.
- Canadian chicken farmers are third party audited for animal care and on farm food safety.
- Canadian farmers are committed to sustainability through innovation by preserving or land.
Lower Carb Option:
I served the leftovers over a bagged kale caesar salad and it was amazing. I highly recommend this version as well.
You could also serve this over a spring mix or whatever lettuce you have on hand for a quick salad for your lunch or no fuss dinner.
What to Add in Chicken Salad
I added red peppers, matchstick carrots, and raisins to this curried chicken salad but here are some other options to consider:
