Chicken Curry Salad

Chicken Curry Salad

Sometimes its hard to get through all the chicken from making a large soup, so this chicken curry salad is a great way to save on the waste and use up leftover chicken in a tasty way! This curried chicken salad is tender and creamy, and the exciting flavours come from the combination of curry spices combined with the sweet fruity chutney. Scoop it onto a salad for lunch or make a sandwich. Any way you serve it, you are in for a treat!
Prep Time 20 mins


  • 1 whole chicken shredded (leftover chicken from chicken soup recipe or you can just use a whole roasted chicken, see Lisa’s notes if you’re just using white breast meat – ensure all skin is removed from the chicken)
  • ¼ red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 celery stick, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 tsp. garam masala
  • 5 tbsp. mango chutney (I recommend thebrand Geeta’s Mango Chutney)
  • 5 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp. coriander, chopped optional
  • sea or pink Himalayan salt
  • herbamre 
  • white pepper


  • coriander

serving suggestion

  • salad or some of your favourite bread


  • Using the chicken leftover from your chicken soup (or you can use a whole cooked chicken if you prefer – ensure all chicken skin is removed) carefully shred the chicken, avoiding any bones, then place into a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the garam masala and season with sea salt, herbamare and white pepper. Add the mango chutney, mayonnaise, onions, celery and coriander and mix well.
  • Check for seasonings, as you might need to add a little something extra depending on your taste buds, and if you want more mayonnaise, feel free to add according to your taste.
  • Garnish with extra coriander.
  • Enjoy!

LISA’S TIP – Whenever I make chicken soup, I use a whole chicken cut into 8 pieces, (see for the recipe), I then keep the dark meat for serving in the soup and I use the white meat for making this recipe. If you only use white meat as opposed to using a whole cooked chicken, you will only need the following:
White meat from the whole cooked chicken (breast meat)- If using a whole chicken follow the recipe above.
breast meat only
¼ red onion, finely chopped
1 celery stick, peeled and finely chopped
1 tsp. garam masala
2 tbsp mango chutney (I recommened the brand Geeta’s Mango Chutney)
2 ½ tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tbsp. coriander, chopped (optional)
sea or pink Himalayan salt
white pepper
This curry chicken salad is perfect when you’re looking for a new flavour variation from a classic chicken salad. It’s great for lunches, picnics, or keeping on hand in the fridge for a high protein snack. I love to serve this mix in either a spinach egg wrap, rice paper rolls or rolled in lettuce wraps. It also great in crustless finger sandwiches.
