Reviews for Curried Chicken Salad Sandwiches
"Just made this to use up leftover turkey. I only used the ingredients I had on hand. I left out the Apple, celery, walnuts, & green onions. I tried some on a few crackers & enjoyed the taste. The curry adds a nice touch. I will definitely make again, but I would still leave out the walnuts. I'm not a huge fan of nuts."
"These have a nice curry flavor. I did add a pinch of sea salt as some reviews suggested plus allowed the flavors to marry a bit in the refrigerator before eating. I also eliminated the bread and made wraps using the lettuce."
"This recipe was amazing. I was out of plain mayo but had an avocado based mayo in a chipotle flavor so I left out the curry (though we love curry) to not overwhelm the dish with chipotle and curry and it was so amazing. Spicy, sweet but savory at the same time. I don't eat poultry or meat just fish but by the time I was done making this for my family I had to try some. Definitely recommend."
"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..."
"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."
