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).
