Total Time 15 minutes
YIELD 4 servings

Ingredients

Chicken:

  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lb. (450 g) chicken breasts, cut into pieces
  • 3/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • pinch of freshly ground pepper

Salad:

  • 1/2 small onion , finely chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • pinch of freshly ground pepper
  • 6 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • a handful of cilantro or parsley , optional
  • optional add-ins: mango chutney , scallions, raisins

Instructions

  1. Cook the chicken: Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and sprinkle with curry, turmeric, and pepper. Sauté until cooked through from all sides. Allow to cool completely.
  2. Assemble the Salad: Mix chicken with all the other salad ingredients (no need to cook the onion). Season more to taste if needed. Serve with a green salad, in sandwiches, or my favorite: bagels!
