Curried Chicken Salad

Natural and golden raisins add perfect balance to this spicy chicken salad for a crowd.



  • 3 whole chicken breasts(about 2 1/2 pounds), bone-in and skin-on
  • Olive oil; as needed
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups low calorie, low sodium mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup chutney
  • 3 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 cup medium-diced celery (2 large stalks)
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions, white and green parts (2 scallions)
  • 1/2 cup California natural raisins
  • 1/2 cup California golden raisins
  • 1 cup whole roasted, salted cashews


Preheat oven to 350°F. Place chicken breasts on sheet pan; rub skin with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast 35 to 40 minutes until done (170°F). Cool. Remove and discard skin and bones; cut into bite-size pieces.

For dressing, in bowl of food processor fitted with steel blade, combine mayonnaise, wine, chutney and curry powder; process until smooth and season to taste.

Combine chicken with enough dressing to moisten well. Add celery, scallions and raisins; mix well. Let stand in refrigerator for a few hours. Warm to room temperature, fold in cashews and serve immediately.
