“Chicken salad is elevated by using a spicy chutney and good curry blend. I received this recipe from a friend's co-worker at Salon Kellogg in Kansas City, MO. It holds up well for 3-5 days when refrigerated; you might want to add a TBS or so of mayo prior to serving if it has been in the fridge for over a day. If you can't find a spicy chutney use a regular one and add some good chili powder, about 1/2 teaspoon. NOTE: the recipe is only as good as the curry powder used. If you don't have a preference, try Penzey's Maharajah Curry. It's a tasty blend. Prep time includes cooking the rice but doesn't include cooking the chicken.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook rice on stovetop in your preferred way.
  2. While rice cooks, chop chicken. Slice water chestnuts into slivers. Dice the green onions.
  3. Toast almonds in a saute pan on the stovetop, stirring carefully so they don't burn. About 10 minutes on medium heat.
  4. When rice is finished cooking, mix all ingredients in a large bowl, stirring gently and thoroughly. Refrigerate an hour or so. Eat in sandwiches or atop crackers. We like it on plain water crackers.
