This sandwich 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.

"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, 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."

"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"

"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!"

"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."
