Crisp & Crunchy Curry Chicken Salad

Curry1C

 

We do love us some curry chicken salad at our house.  And when I discovered that the deli counter at Safeway sells shredded rotisserie chicken breast for $5.99/# – I was ON IT!  This is fast, easy, moderately healthy and although it does involve some chopping, no cooking is required!

Dudes! Get some chicken!Mix it all up with a little mayo (or Greek yogurt, if you’re lucky enough to be able to eat dairy), and let’s eat!
