My mother has a recipe for a killer non-Paleo carrot cake. She’ll bake it for most social gatherings she goes to, taking it as a gift (she is so sweet and generous – love you, mom). That carrot cake is her signature dessert. Everyone always raves about it. People will have second servings every time, because it is oh-so-good. I haven’t had it in years, but oh boy do I wish she could make some for me right now.
Well, my mother in-law has a signature recipe herself. Hers is a savory recipe, but equally delicious. She takes it to family functions as well, and it is gone in no time. Her recipe is a chicken & curry salad with green grapes!
I’ve asked my mother-in-law for permission to use her recipe for my blog; she said “absolutely!” How generous of her to share it with us! 🙂
I’ve made her recipe Paleo friendly, by substituting two ingredients: mayonnaise and sugar (mayonnaise was subbed with my Paleo Mayo and sugar was subbed with honey).
This Chicken Curry Salad is sweet, crunchy, full of good protein and deliciously tangy.
- 4 chicken breasts
- 2 cups green grapes
- ⅓ cup Paleo Mayo
- 1 heaping tablespoon curry powder
- 2 heaping tablespoons honey (or more!)
- ½ cup slivered almonds
- Sea salt (to taste)
- Black pepper (to taste)
- Cover your baking sheet with aluminum foil.
- Set broiler on high, arranging rack so that the chicken will be about 2 inches from the heat.
- Rinse your chicken breasts and cut off any excess fat.
- Place chicken breasts side by side on baking sheets.
- Sprinkle sea salt and pepper, to taste. Place chicken in oven and broil for 14 minutes.
- Carefully flip each chicken breast, and place back in oven for it to continue to broil for another 14 minutes.
- Once chicken cools off, grab your sharp knife and cut all four chicken breasts into small squares.
- Place chicken, grapes, and slivered almonds in your mixing bowl; using your wooden spoon, mix them together.
- In a separate bowl, mix your Paleo Mayo, honey and curry powder. Once combined, add it to your chicken, grapes and almond mix.
