Quick Bites: Curried Chicken Salad
The secret to an excellent chicken salad is to use roasted turkey breast. Just thought you should know.
Tonight’s dinner is chicken salad –with turkey of course– into which I mixed mayonnaise (store bought; long week), curry powder, diced apples, pickled hot peppers (homemade), scallions and a little salt and pepper.
I cut the turkey into nice sized cubes, maybe a centimeter on a side. The apple I cut brunoise, the scallions and hot peppers just diced.
You wouldn’t think about the apples and the hot peppers, but I like the sweetness that jumps out at you, and the heat from the peppers is muted by the mayonnaise. Which just means that you have to add more hot peppers, of course.More links than a string of hot dogs:
