Chutney Chicken Salad

 Got some leftover chicken?  

Have I got a recipe for you then.  

That is if you're not doing the 'traditional' Corned Beef today or you just happen to have some leftover chicken, not doing anything, but hanging around.  

Actually this would be good any old time of the year.  But if you are doing the traditional meal today, check out my Corned Beef recipe. I've actually got one going in my crock pot right now.  

Back to the chicken, I had cooked two large chicken breasts the other day, and ate part of one the first day, and the last two days, I ate this chicken salad.  

I may have to cook the other chicken breasts that are hanging out in my freezer, so I can make this again for myself.  I ate it on a bed of butter lettuce and felt rather virtuous. 'wink'.

Chicken Salad

I have to admit to making this for myself a couple of times now, but I'm ready to share how I made it along with the basic ingredients.  

This is a quick and easy salad to make and serve and is totally delicious.  You can add more or less of all the ingredients to serve 2 or more people.  Chicken loves sweet stuff, so the chutney mixes well with all of it. 

Finish off with a sprinkle of walnuts if you choose.  I think you could also use any kind of nuts as well. I usually have lots of walnuts on hand so, I used them. 

I used full fat mayo, but I bet you could also sub in Greek Yoghurt.  

In other words, make it to your taste.

Leftover chicken meets chutney and makes friends.

  1. Cut the celery and leftover chicken into a dice- roughly the same size. Place the chicken, cranberries and celery into a bowl.
  2. Mix the mayo and chutney together and pour over the chicken mixture and toss it together.
  3. Mound the chicken salad onto some butter lettuce to serve. This is great with a slice of home made bread or a croissant.
