Curried Chicken Salad Sandwiches

This chicken salad sandwich recipe is perfect to serve when you want to “show off” a little. It features an interesting blend of chicken, nuts, cranberries, curry and other ingredients. I mix it up the night before so the flavors meld. —Carole Martin, Coffeeville, Mississippi

    This is delicious! I didn't have any apples, so I just went without them, although I think they would have added great flavor and crunch. We loved the addition of cranberries.....and the lemon, green onion and curry powder added a wonderful savory element. This chicken salad is perfect for lunch or a light supper and is something we'll definitely make again. Will make sure I have apples next time! keeper!

    This was very good. My husband didn't feel the cranberries were necessary but I liked them. I'm not usually a fan of curry dishes but this was light and flavorful.

    I loved this recipe. I didn't have any curry so just used an all-purpose seasoning (salt/pepper/garlic/onion mix) on the chicken when cooking it. Didn't have walnuts, but used pecans. Loved the crunch of the nuts and celery and the sweet from the apples and cranberries.

    Tried this recipe because I happened to have all the ingredients on hand. I found it to be just OK—too much mayonnaise, too many cranberries which gave it a sweet taste which I didn't care for, and too little curry powder.

    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.

    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, 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.
