Curry Chicken Salad

Curry Chicken Salad-3

Today I am sharing a healthy lunch recipe that you can get excited about. This Curry Chicken Salad is made with greek yogurt and a touch of mayonnaise and seasoned with red curry and smoked paprika. The result is a flavorful, refreshing chicken salad with curry and paprika taste but not hot heat.

Since the curry dressing is made with greek yogurt, it’s a much lighter tasting version of curry chicken salad that still has the traditional sliced red grapes, celery, and walnuts to add extra taste and texture.

Curry Chicken Salad-Recipe

You can either use leftover chicken to prepare this recipe, or pick up a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store (it’s my favorite time-saving trick). Since you are starting with cooked chicken, this recipe comes together in 10 minutes. I suggest using a whole rotisserie chicken to make a big batch of curry chicken salad that you can pack for lunch all week. You can mix things up by serving it over lettuce, in a sandwich, or with celery for dipping.

  • 3 cups Diced Cooked Chicken
  • 1 (5.3 ounce) Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons Mayonnaise (I love Sir Kensingtons)
  • 2-3 teaspoons Thai Red Curry Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1/3 cup Chopped Celery
  • 1/3 cup Red Grapes, cut into fourths
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Walnuts


  1. Start by mixing up your curry sauce. In a small bowl, stir the yogurt, mayonnaise, curry, and paprika together.
  2. Then place the chicken, celery, grapes, and walnuts in a large bowl. Add half of the curry sauce, and continue adding more sauce until everything is evenly coated in sauce. This is a matter of personal preference, and I had about 1/4 cup of the sauce leftover which I can use a salad dressing.
  3. Either serve right away, or pack for lunch.
