Why I Love This Recipe

A great way to use up leftover chicken, or to spice up your usual chicken salad. I use grilled chicken breasts, but you can easily use a good old rotisserie chicken from the market. The leftover mayonnaise mixture makes a fantastic sandwich spread. You can also use it as a marinade for chicken!

Ingredients You'll Need

2 chicken breasts
1/2 cup red grapes, halved
1/2 cup. walnuts, coarsely chopped
4 cups mixed greens
1/4 c. light mayo
1/4 c. non fat plain yogurt
1 tsp. curry
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 Tbls. olive oil
1 Tbls. red wine or champagne vinegar


If not using leftover chicken, season your chicken breasts with salt and pepper and place on a hot grill, cooking about 4 minutes on each side.

Chop into 1/2 inch chunks, or shred.

In a medium bowl, whisk mayo, yogurt, curry, salt and pepper.

Reserve half of mayo mixture and set aside.

Add chicken, grapes, and walnuts to medium bowl and toss to coat.

Add 1 Tbls. mayo mixture, oil, and vinegar to a large bowl and whisk to combine.

Add greens and toss to coat.

Divide greens among four plates and top each with equal servings of chicken mixture.

Reserve leftover mayo mixture in an air tight container. It will keep in the fridge for several weeks.

Oh, my! Why didn't I think of this?? What a great summer evening treat. I'm saving this one to try very soon. Thanks for sharing.

This looks like a recipe I have been searching for. Your "dressing" seems to be the secret that the gourmet places around here must use. Can't wait to try this, thanks for posting!
