Curried Chicken Salad with Grapes, Almonds, Cilantro and Red Pepper
I’ve been making a fair amount of chicken salad for lunches, but rarely do I photograph it since I’ll make it at night and throw it in a tupperware.  One time I even made enough for 2 days to leave at work overnight, thinking I was really clever for planning ahead.  That was a huge mistake.  Going into the kitchen for Day 2 Lunch to see someone had been munching on it as a midnight snack was fairly infuriating.  Who does that? I digress.  I had to try a bit of this so I managed to take a picture, and it’s one of my favorites so far.  The rolls I made with leftover pizza dough that was in my fridge for 24 hours, mixed with some flax-seeds.  Really nice, and not just because they were warm.  The 24 hours in the fridge helped. Ingredients:
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 tbsp curry powder
2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 red pepper, diced
1 cup grapes, sliced in half
1/4 cup chopped blanched almonds
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
Olive oil and salt
Rub the chicken with a little oil, then sprinkle with the curry and chili powder.  Bake for about 30 minutes at 220C / 375F or until just cooked through.  Let cool. In a bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients.  Chop or shred the chicken once it’s cool enough to handle, and mix in.  Season with salt.
