Ingredients

  • 3 to 4 cold cooked chicken breasts, skin removed, diced in small pieces
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 crisp apple, cored and finely chopped (do not peel)
  • ½ cup seedless grapes, halved It's nice to use a mixture of red and green grapes if you can. Extra grapes can be used as a garnish.
  • ¼ cup raisins or sultanas
  • ¼ cup flaked toasted almonds plus extra for garnish
  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise I use Hellmann's Extra Light Mayonnaise
  • 4 tablespoons plain yogurt, crème fraîche or sour cream (you can use half or reduced fat if you like)
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons curry powder
  • ¼ teaspoon celery salt
  • pinch of salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • sliced lettuces to serve

Instructions

  • Put the diced chicken breasts, red onion, apple, ½ cup grapes, raisins and ¼ cup flaked toasted almonds in a large bowl.
  • In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, yogurt (crème fraîche or sour cream), curry powder, celery salt, salt, and freshly ground pepper. Whisk together until blended.
  • Stir the mayonnaise mixture into the chicken, vegetable, fruit and nut mixture until well mixed. It's easiest to toss the mixture lightly using two forks.
  • Serve on a bed of thinly sliced lettuces, garnished with extra halved grapes and flaked toasted almonds.
