Curry Chicken Salad {Paleo}













So, before my family really cared about what we were eating, we would go to Fred Meyer and get Curry Chicken Salad from the deli. Once I discovered a few allergies, Fred Meyers Curry Chicken Salad was no longer an option. It is a blessing in disguise, though. It is filled with GMO's, grains, sugar, soy and MSG. So, here is our healthier, Paleo version! 


What you'll need:
  • 6 Large Organic Chicken Breasts
  • 3 Organic Apples
  • 1 1/2 Cups dried cranberries (if you can find them without sugar :-/) or raisins
  • 2 Cups Cashews or Macadamia Nuts that have been soaked and HERE is why
  • Celtic Sea Salt to taste 
  • Curry Spice to taste
  • 1 batch of Mayonnaise HERE
  • 1 batch of paleo flatbread (optional)
Directions

  • 1. Cut your chicken into bite sized pieces
  • 2. Cook chicken over medium heat 
  • 3. Set chicken aside and let it cool
  • 4. Make a batch of mayonnaise while you're waiting
  • 5. Chop apples into small bite sized pieces
  • 6. Coarsely chop nuts 
  • 7. Add chicken, apples, cranberries, nuts, salt, spice and mayonnaise to a large bowl and mix everything together.
  • 8. Make a batch of paleo flatbread (see notes below)

The flatbread from Savory Lotus works nicely as a wrap for the chicken salad, it is completely optional though. I recommend leaving out the rosemary for this particular recipe. I just make 3-4 smaller, slightly thinner flatbreads per batch instead of one large flatbread and it works great as a wrap when it is warm. Once it is refrigerated, it isn't as pliable. 

Enjoy! If you make it, please let us know what you think! ;)

God Bless!
