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
