Description

A delicious, cold delight with all the magic of curry.

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds Chicken, Cooked And Diced/shredded
  • 6 ounces, weight Dry Pasta, Cooked And Drained
  • 4 whole Ribs Celery, Thinly Sliced - Leaves Included (use Interior Ribs)
  • ¾ cups Golden Raisins
  • ¾ cups Slivered Almonds
  • ½ cups Mayonnaise
  • ½ cups Sour Cream
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 3 Tablespoons Curry Powder, More Or Less To Taste
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar, More Or Less To Taste
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Preparation

Boil chicken to cook. Boil pasta in chicken broth.

Dice/shred chicken. Drain pasta.

Mix together mayonnaise, sour cream, heavy cream, curry powder, sugar, salt, and pepper. Whisk together until well combined.

Combine chicken, drained pasta, sliced celery, raisins, and almonds in a large bowl. Pour curry dressing over the top. Fold together with a rubber spatula. Make sure it’s all combined, then add more of whatever it needs. Make sure the sweet/savory balance is right for you! (I like mine a little sweet.)

Chill for several hours. Serve with juicy grapes on the side.

Wow, this is delicious! I couldn’t resist and noshed a bit while it was still warm, and it was almost, but not quite, as good as the gorgeous blend of flavor that was the cold version. Thank you!

Easy to make and tasty.
We ate this cold, warm, on bread, and straight from the bowl standing with the fridge door open. Will likely be a favorite lunch box item this school year.

This was very good. Thanks for the recipe! I used dried cherries in stead of raisins. I ate it as is while my hubby actually preferred to heat his up. Either way, we gobbled it down :-)
