WW Recipe of the Day: Chutney & Curry Chicken Salad
(371 calories | 5 5 5 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
Here's an easy, healthy and delicious chutney chicken salad with curry. I adapted it from a recipe in the Weight Watchers One Pot Cookbook to work with what I had on hand.
As I began stirring this chicken salad with chutney and curry together, I had a feeling it was going to be good. So I called Mom to see if she wanted to come join me for lunch. She did.
I was right. This chicken salad with chutney and curry made for a very yummy lunch. Mom gave it her approval too. She called it "different and delicious."
The Skinny on Chicken Salad with Chutney and Curry
This chicken salad was already Weight Watchers friendly. I just made a few changes based on what I had on hand.
I used cooked leftover rotisserie chicken breast instead of cooked turkey breast. And chopped peanuts instead of cashews.
The trickiest part of making this salad, is chopping the mango. If you have never chopped a mango, check out the video at the end of the post.
