Chicken curry salad

Don't believe everything you read. This is not a curry, it's a salad with curry powder, but it's a favorite amongst friends and family.  I think I had some regular chicken salad somewhere, called Hawaian, but it didn't taste right. It lacked a flavourfull kick that the curry adds. The celery is a crunchy addition to this salad. Besides, I know you wanted this recipe. Badly. Come on, admit it!

Type of dish: salad, main
Cost: medium
Difficulty:  easy
Time:  20 min
Serves: 4-8
Preparation time: 10 min

What you need to make this dish:

Cutting board, a large bowl, a spoon, colander, medium saucepan, knife


  • 1 bunch of celery
  • 1 packet of raisins
  • 1 can of pineapple
  • 1 chicken breast, deboned and skinned
  • 2 tbsp mayonaise
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 tbsp curry powder (taste a little, should have a kick to it)

How to prepare:
Heat water in saucepan. Wash the chicken, set aside to drain. Wash celery and cut into 3-4 mm thick slices and put in a bowl. Cut the pineapple into bite sized pieces and put in bowl along with the raisins, mayonaise and curry powder. Now, cut the chicken in small dice and throw at once all in the boiling water. Let it cook for 8 min, until white and cooked. Drain and let it cool before adding to the bowl. Give the stuff in the bowl a good mix, try some and add salt and pepper as desired. I know it's good, but once it cools down in the fridge for a couple of hours, it gets better. Put in frigde and mix every hour or so. After at least 3h it great to eat. Drool, but not into the bowl! 

Serve with ideas: I'm not going to be creative here, but serve with pieces of fresh baguette. The sauce is delicious!
