Not Your Regular Old Chicken Salad

I love to come across new recipes that are good, easy, and not too many ingredients.  While I was in Spokane my DIL made some very good dishes.  She's a good cook!  Warms my heart!

She made this delicious chicken salad for dinner one evening and I just couldn't quit eating it!  It has enough of a different taste to it that it's not your regular old chicken salad.

Curried Chicken Salad
2-3 cups cooked chicken (I used 3 cups.  I boiled boneless, skinless chicken breasts, then cut them up into 
                                          large bite size pieces)                                                                    
4 oz. can water chestnuts (drained and sliced)
1/2 lb. seedless grapes
1 cup celery
1 cup mayo. (I like "light" mayo and/or mayo with olive oil)
1 t. curry powder 
2 t. soy sauce (I also use "light" soy sauce)

That's it!  Now just mix the first 4 items in a large bowl.  In a small bowl mix together the final 3 ingredients into a dressing, pour over the chicken mixture and stir.  

I served with Rhodes whole wheat dinner rolls.  You could make sandwiches or just eat the salad by itself with the rolls on the side.  

Mmmm, Mmmm, Good!! Fairly low fat, too.

Except for the addition of water chestnuts I make this recipe frequently. You are right, it is very good.

Oh that does sound good. I think that the seedless grapes make it sound especially scrumptious. I'm going to give it a try.

Definitely will have a go at this, Nina. Thanks for sharing.
