Reviews for Curried Chicken Salad Sandwiches
"I love all the flavors in this chicken salad...cool, spicy, and sweet. I like to use multigrain crackers to scoop it up!"
"I've made this numerous times. It doesn't have a "pretty" color because of the curry, but the taste is phenomenal. Great mix of textures and flavors; the recipe is perfect as given."
"Very good. I'd add more curry next time though..."
"It was good. I added less lemon juice because I was afraid to make it savory. Also I added little bit salt. The sandwich will be better if the chicken mixture will be in the refrigerator little bit then the flavory will be mix better and it is tasty when chicken will be not warm in the sandwich."
"I made this for a woman's church potluck. The group was pleased and ate it up. I used canned chicken and also eased up on the amount of celery as the other reviews suggested. Keeper recipe."
"Made with canned chicken, still received tons of compliments but fresh cooked chicken probably would have tasted a little better. Super fast to fix"
"Quick and easy MmmMmm meal! I love the combination of cranberries and walnuts in this recipe; I used Craisins and it turned out scrumptious! Will definately be making again and again :)"
"This is absolutely wonderful! I might lighten up on the curry a little but probably not. Light mayonnaise works well. I've also used the cran-raisins instead of golden raisins and my choice for nuts is pecans. I've also used onion powder rather than green onions but prefer the actual onions. It's a pleasure to make and to eat....and to share!"
"Great recipe. The curry adds some great flavor. It's also great without the curry."
"I served the sandwiches to my church circle and they all really enjoyed them"
"I served this at a brunch and everyone loved it. It was so good on soft croissants."
"ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS RECIPE! I used light mayo because I almost passed out when I saw the fat content on this recipe."
"I really love curry so I added a little more to taste. All in all, it's a great alternative to the usual chicked salad, and a great way to use up left over chicken."
