Over the years I've made different versions of chicken salad. I usually just throw everything in a bowl, never measuring, just taste and adjust the flavors as I go. My go to was this Keto Chicken Salad. That was until I made this Curry Chicken Salad!
It's flavor is amazing and it's super easy, requiring only 1 bowl and 6 ingredients.
HOW TO MAKE CURRY CHICKEN SALAD
The ingredients we need for this recipe are diced chicken, mayo, curry powder, salt, pepper, lemon juice, sliced almonds, and fresh cilantro.
Throw all of that in a bowl and mix it up.
Could this recipe be any easier?
So for the chicken, you can use already cooked rotisserie chicken, or you can cook some chicken breasts in the instant pot. I like to use my method for Instant Pot Chicken Breast.
As far as the curry powder is concerned, you can use as little, or as much as you want in this curry chicken salad. I like to start with a teaspoon and a half and work up from there. Some of us love curry flavor more than others!
As you can see, I served this chicken salad with low carb tortilla chips. I made them by cutting a medium size low carb tortilla into triangles and baking them in the oven at 400F until they were crispy.

Loved it! I was a little worried because I made it with leftover barbequed chicken, but it was delicious!!

Used some leftover turkey and served it on a bed of spinach with some cucumber and some diced onion. Loved it!
Excellent recipe. I added a little honey and used Sweet Curry, as I have three different kinds in the cabinets. It was perfect!

Looks so good- I love curry! How could I not have thought of this before? Also, where do you find your low carb tortillas? My husband’s biggest struggle on Keto is missing chips. Thanks!
I cut a mission brand carb smart tortilla and baked them in the oven
