Curry Chicken Salad Recipe

This fantastic recipe combines crispy curried chicken pieces and typical salad ingredients, and also introduces a creamy yogurt dressing which complements the Indian flavors in the chicken pieces. The yogurt dressing is flavorful and since the recipe for it makes two cups you can keep any leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator for a couple of days.

The chicken is coated in a curry mixture and then in breadcrumbs, before being baked to crispy perfection. This is healthier than deep-frying. You can make the chicken pieces as big or small as you want, and you can shape them into nugget shapes if you like. Make sure the chicken is free from bones and skin.

Serve the chicken hot, warm, or chilled, but do not let it sit at room temperature for too long. It is not a good idea to cook the chicken ahead, because then you will have to refrigerate it and it will get soggy. You can let it cool while you prepare the arugula, tomato, and onion, and divide the salad between the plates. This curry chicken salad recipe is nicer with the chicken pieces served warm anyway.
