Curried Chicken Salad with Plantain Chips

Curried Chicken Salad w/Crystallized Ginger

Curried Chicken Salad – With this recipe, I wanted to accomplish two things. I would like to make an easy dish using a rotisserie chicken. And I wanted to use some of the Paradise Fruit Company’s crystallized (candied) ginger in a recipe.

So, we made a Curried Chicken Salad with Paradise Fruit Company’s candied ginger. This is a low-carb, keto-friendly recipe, using chicken that someone else cooked for you.

In the Cooking Secrets for Men tradition, there’s no need to season or roast the chicken. The store has already done it for you. All you have to do is put the Curried Chicken Salad together.

Curried Chicken Salad Ingredients

This rotisserie chicken salad recipe is not your average one either. It’s a curry chicken salad with green apples, shredded carrots, and toasted slivered almonds. It is tossed in a lemon dressing that’s lightened up with Greek yogurt. And we top with Paradise Fruit Company’s Candied Crystallized Ginger.

Chicken salad is a very old-school dish to me.  It was a staple of my mother’s kitchen.  But the convenience of a cooked rotisserie chicken was not available then. So, it took longer to make a good chicken salad, if you had to cook the chicken first.

Our way makes this classic dish an “anytime” food.  This curried chicken salad with rotisserie chicken has its roots in the classic preparation.  It’s simple but with a few twists.

  1. 5 stars
    Charlie, I like how you lightened up the dressing with yogurt but made it very flavorful with the rest of the ingredients. I will have to look for that ginger product.

  2. This is very interesting to me. I’ve only used crystallized ginger in cookies and granola. Never in something savory Thanks for this idea!
