William and Sophie love sandwiches for lunch. In a way, that’s great for me and hubby because either of us can make their lunches quite easily. However, it can still be tricky as I cannot serve them the same old filling or spread every single day. Naturally, I have to be creative and make a rotation of their favorite food. Thankfully, I can add another delicious sandwich filling to my list and it is this truly tasty curried chicken salad!

I thought at first that my kids wouldn’t eat this as it has a more adult complex flavor because of the curry and chutney  flavoring. But when they came home, the lunch box was all empty and the sandwiches gone. They actually enjoyed it! The only complaint I receive is from my little girl who said, “Mom, you added ground peppers.” Yup, of all the flavors in this salad, she could detect a few sprinkling of ground pepper! She is not a fan of freshly ground pepper and never really like it on anything. But apart from that, they loved this chicken salad.

You can serve this on its own, perhaps on a bed of lettuce and certainly as filling for a sandwich or wrap. Hubby and I enjoyed this for lunch wrapped and rolled. It was so good so hubby requested that I should make it again. I certainly will. Hope you enjoy this as much as we do.

Recipe Notes

My curry powder is direct from India so it's quite hot so a little goes a long way so feel free to adjust the amount especially if your curry is mild and you want a little more than a subtle hint of heat.
