  • 1 1/4 lbs chicken breasts
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 2 scallions diced
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup diced walnuts
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt or organic mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt or more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the chicken in a covered baking dish, and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Insert a meat thermometer into the chicken to ensure that it has a safe internal temperature of 165 degrees. Try not to overcook the chicken or it will be a bit dry. Let the chicken cool on a cutting board, then cut it into cubes (yields about 3 cups).
  • Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl. Add the celery, scallions, raisins, and walnuts to the bowl.
  • In a separate small bowl, stir together the yogurt (or mayonnaise), lemon juice, curry powder, salt, and turmeric. Pour the dressing over the chicken mixture, and stir to coat evenly.
  • Transfer the curry chicken salad to an airtight container and refrigerate.
