Spiced Curry Chicken Salad Recipe

I enjoy my lunchtime a lot, especially when I have this Curry Chicken Salad! It is the one time of day that I have all to myself, and it’s become vital for me to shut everything off-phones, and the internet and enjoy what I’m eating and take a real break. With that being said, I don’t get a ton of time to prepare lunch, so it’s usually deconstructed sandwiches with some fruit or cherry tomatoes on the side. I love it when I get the opportunity to throw together something during the week that I can use for lunches throughout the remainder of the week, and this was one of those weeks!

On Wednesday, my husband picked up a rotisserie chicken that we didn’t use, so I pulled it apart and made one of my favourite lunch recipes, curry chicken salad. The recipe is simple to make and very tasty. I like to change it up sometimes. I’ll eat it with a pita, maybe some crackers, or throw it on salad greens. It’s a quick recipe to pull together and makes a beautiful lunch.
