Curry! Curry! Get Your Chicken Curry Salad and it's #GlutenFree

Gluten Free Chicken Curry Salad

It is so hot here in Los Angeles and I am writing this recipe in 104 degree heat. As you know it's my 2nd Blog Anniversary and I wanted to share one of my original recipes that brings back memories. This is one of my favorite summer recipes, I remember as a kid my mother made a similar recipe but mine is a little different. The best part of it is you are not required to cook the chicken. I bought a rotisserie chicken from Costco and shredded the chicken from that. The night I made it, my hubby was not that into me adding the golden raisins. So I left them out, however it’s optional, but very yummy with or without.

Serves 4-6 people depending on portions


2 cups Shredded Chicken

2 Granny Smith apples chopped and pealed

1 Bunch of Grapes 30-35 grapes

½ cup Best Foods Mayonnaise Best food on the West Coast Hellman's in the East Coast

2 Tablespoons Curry Powder

1 Tablespoon Brown Mustard

1 cup golden raisins (optional)

1 head of lettuce

Garnish with Fresh Fruit

Combine all ingredients in bowl stir well and refrigerate for 1 hour Serve with fresh melon on a lettuce leaf.

Tip of the Day : You can always get a cooked Rotisserie Chicken or Precooked Chicken at the
market to save you time

Enjoy and Bon Appetite!

  1. I don't even like curry but that looks so good!

  2. Thanks The Mrs!! It is always nice of you to say such nice things.

  3. I'm definitely going to give this a try! I love curry! I make a curry chicken salad with chicken, mayo, white pepper, salt, curry, CINNAMON (yes!), lime juice, and toasted almonds. Delish... but I think the fruit in your version will balance the curry beautifully! Excited about trying it out!

  4. Carrie Beth,
    Thanks for looking and I look forward to hearing how you liked it. Your recipe too sounds devine. I will have to try it out.

    Thanks for the comment.
