Curry Chicken Pasta Salad is part chicken salad, part pasta salad with lots of curry flavor. Combining the two makes for a light, but filling meal that’s perfect for a summer lunch or dinner.

Curry Chicken Salad Recipe

Since I love bold flavors, I tend to love curry anything. And I especially love a curry chicken salad. If you are a fan of curry, be sure to try this Curried Potato Salad recipe.

Ingredients

I use a combination of mayonnaise and sour cream for lots of creaminess. Plus I add some mango chutney and heavy cream. A full two tablespoons of curry powder adds plenty of curry flavor. Trust me, it won’t be an overwhelming amount.

I also add red onion, celery, and almond slices for some crunch. Plus some raisins for sweetness. I like the golden ones for this. Craisins would be good too. You could use red grapes, apple, or even pineapple instead of or in addition to the raisins.

How To Serve

Serve Curry Chicken Pasta Salad on a bed of lettuce and you have a full meal that’s perfect for a hot summer day. It’s both cool and refreshing. It also can be used as a filling for a wrap.

Recipe Tips

For ease and convenience I use rotisserie chicken but you can use any cooked chicken. Use all white meat or a combination of white meat and dark meat.

Tastes even better if made a day in advance.

Variations and Substitutions

Use any shape of pasta. Fusilli, mini farfalle, and macaroni work well.

Use craisins, red grapes or diced apple in place of golden raisins.

Use toasted walnuts, pecans, or macadamia nuts in place of almonds.

Add a pinch of red pepper flakes for a little heat.

How To Store

Can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4 days. I do not recommend freezing it.
