Curried Chicken Salad With Apples and Cranberries

This tasty chicken salad is filled with flavor. The crunchy apples, cranberries, and nuts make it extra-special. This is an excellent way to use leftover chicken—or make the salad with leftover turkey. A fully cooked rotisserie chicken or convenient fully cooked chicken breast strips may be used as well. Below the recipe, you’ll find basic instructions for cooking chicken breasts on the stovetop.

Diced apples, dried cranberries, celery, and a dash of curry powder add flavor to this chicken salad. The chopped pecans and walnuts in the salad add some extra flavor and interesting texture, but you can leave them out if you’d like. 

Serve this well-seasoned chicken salad in sliced ciabatta bread or similar bread as a sandwich, or serve in lettuce leaves for a lighter luncheon. The salad can be served in tortillas or wraps as well. Light mayonnaise may be used in this salad.

  • 3 cups chicken (cooked, diced)
  • Olive oil (as needed, for cooking)
  • Optional: 1/4 cup walnuts (chopped, or slivered almonds or pecans, toasted)
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup celery (diced)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup apple (diced)
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons mayonnaise (or to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • Optional: 1/8 teaspoon curry powder (or to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Optional: good-quality bread or sandwich buns (sliced)
