  • 1 lb. cooked chicken breast chopped (about 2 medium chicken breasts)
  • 1 large stalk celery trimmed, halved and chopped
  • 1/2 cup roasted cashew pieces almonds or walnuts are a great substitute
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins or substitute with your favorite dried or fresh fruit such as apples or grapes
  • 1/3 cup chopped chives or use 1 large green onion


  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise I use Vegenaise but use your favorite! You may also substitute with Greek yogurt.
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice may be substituted with white or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey or your favorite sweetner
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper or to taste


  • Place the chicken, celery, golden raisins, chives and cashews in a large bowl.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the mayo, lime juice, honey, curry powder, salt and pepper until combined, then add to the chicken mixture and stir gently to combine. Serve on your favorite bread, in lettuce wraps, or atop a salad!


  • Total time does not include cooking the chicken. This recipe comes together quickly with leftover baked, poached or grilled chicken. I often prep a batch of my Instant Pot Shredded Chicken when I'm planning to make chicken salad. Pro tip: Use rotisserie chicken to save time!
  • A little curry powder goes a long way, so I used just 1/2 teaspoon for mild curry flavor. Add more if desired!
  • Serve as a sandwich, in lettuce wraps or atop a salad for the perfect meal prep lunch!
  • Store leftover curry chicken salad in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
