Curried Chicken Salad in Lettuce Cups

Here's an idea of what to make for a quick dinner. It tastes so refreshing! We all worked together while making it--the best way to make dinner!

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 scallions, thinly sliced
Fresh cilantro, chopped (to taste)
2 stalks celery, thinly sliced
3/4 cup halved seedless red grapes
2 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed (we used rotisserie chicken)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

Butter lettuce leaves, for serving (if you can't find it, iceberg lettuce leaves should work)

In a bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, curry, honey, and lemon juice. Stir in the scallions, celery, and grapes until combined. Add the cooked chicken meat and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve heaping portions of the salad in butter lettuce leaves (kind of messy, but definitely yummy).


  1. Are you addicted to rotisserie chicken?

  2. Not addicted--but we had a lot to use (hence the multiple recent recipe posts using rotisserie chicken). We bought two packages at Costco--the packages where they have already removed the meat from the bone. Each package holds A LOT of meat--so we enjoyed it multiple ways. Now if only I can find good ways to use the beef from my freezer...

  3. You could send some beef steaks my way. :-) Bryce isn't a huge fan of steaks, but sometimes I just want a good steak. So I don't get them very much. A yummy beef stew sounds great right now, too.
