Curried Chicken Salad Sandwich

It was a hit this weekend when I make my usual Chicken Curry Salad with a bit more jazz as a sandwich for my friend’s Bridal Shower Brunch. This recipe will make 12+ sandwiches but will top 6-8 salads. I used an organic multigrain bread, but feel free to use your favorite. Scoop over your favorite greens – I used arugula in the pictures below – for a fresh summer salad!

Creamy Curried Chicken Salad

Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Serves: 2

What do you do with cold leftover chicken breast? Well, there are many options, but re-heating almost always yields dry chicken. Throwing it on a salad with a bunch of veggies is also great but how about curry? Turmeric, a spice used in all curry mixes is anti-inflammatory and helps liver detoxification. This yellow-orange root add depth and flavor to any recipe!

Daiya Cheese

Last year, I found this wonderful cheese alternative product called Daiya, made primarily from tapioca and arrowroot flours and pea protein. Available in ‘Cheddar Style’ and ‘Italian Blend’, it melts and stretches just like the ‘real’ thing!

Trader Joe’s Allergen- Free Pancake Mix

This serious allergen free pancake&waffle mix makes a great base, not only for a variety of different pancakes but for other baking needs as well. The package has a recipe for coffee cake but I imagine you can use it for any other cake recipe as well!
