Cold Curried Chicken Salad Recipe

Curry chicken is a delicious Indian favorite that can be served hot or cold. I like it both ways, but in the summer time mixing curried chicken with fruit and vegetables makes for a refreshing meal. I'm sharing one of my favorite Indian recipes for cold curried chicken with you so that you can enjoy it with your family. Mixing this curry with other spices and Miracle Whip assures that it is not to spicy. The flavors are far more subtle than you might imagine for a recipe with curry, mustard and cumin in it.

Pair this with a great white wine or summer Sangria for a great patio picnic on a refreshing night and you have the makings of a great family dinner.


  • 1 sm. can (8 oz.) pineapple chunks, reserve juice
  • 2/3 c. Miracle Whip
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 tsp. curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 5 cooked, boneless chicken breasts, cooled and diced
  • 1/4 c. celery, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 c. slivered almonds, toasted (optional)
  • 1/3 c. raisins
  • Red grapes, halved
  • Lettuce

Combine 2 tablespoons pineapple juice with the Miracle Whip, mustard, curry powder, turmeric, cumin and salt. Mix chicken with the remaining ingredients and blend well. Chill well. Serve on a bed of lettuce.

Sounds absolutely delicious, Jaynie - and essentially so simple. Had to Google "Miracle Whip" as I've never heard of it before. Don't think that's something we have in the UK. Would you recommend ordinary mayonnaise as an alternative?

Thanks Gordon. It is really good. Yes, you can use regular Mayo. You can also mix 1/3 c. Mayo with 1/3 c. sour cream. Miracle Whip is something found in our salad dressing section of the market. It looks like mayo, but we spread it on sandwiches instead of butter. It has a slightly tangy taste, but it is quite good.

The mayonnaise/soured cream option sounds good, Jaynie. I'll try that - thanks! :)
