Curried Chicken Salad

Two-ingredient crock pot chicken is so versatile. With a big bowl full of moist, shredded chicken ready to go after cooking in the crock pot all day, the uses for the meat are endless.

Two of my favorite ways to use the chicken are in buffalo chicken and BBQ pulled chicken sandwiches. Though I typically default to stand by recipes when it comes to the two-ingredient pulled chicken, tonight I decided to try something a little different.

I made the salad by combining the following:

  • Two pulled chicken breasts
  • Light Miracle Whip (Mayo will also work)
  • Sweet Relish
  • Chopped carrot
  • Chopped celery
  • Ginger
  • Curry powder

    Mmm. That looks good. I’m going to try a veggie version of that, substituting mashed chick peas for the chicken. And funny coincidence, I had almost the same dessert tonight, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies in my case.
