Curry CHICKEN GRAPE SALAD                                                             Kreiger inspired

 Papai street reunion 2009

4 servings 

1 1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1/4 cup sliced almonds  (1.125 oz.)
1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 cup halved red grapes (12 oz.)
1/2 cup chopped cilantro leaves
Kosher salt (start w ˝ tsp.) and freshly ground black pepper to taste
5 ounces mixed greens (about 5 cups lightly packed))
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice


Cold poach the chicken… 

In a pot large enough to cover chicken with at least one inch of water, fill pot with water.  Bring to a boil over high heat.  Add chicken breasts, bring to a boil.  Cover and remove from heat.  Let sit, covered, for 25 – 30 minutes.  When chicken is cool enough to handle (or next day after refrigerating chicken) cut it into ˝” cubes. 

Toast the almonds in a small dry skillet over medium-high heat until fragrant and beginning to turn golden, 2 to 3 minutes.  

In a large bowl, stir together the yogurt, mayonnaise, and curry powder. Fold in the chicken, grapes and cilantro and season, to taste, with salt and pepper.  

In a large bowl, toss the greens with the oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper, to taste. Arrange the greens on 4 individual plates, top with a scoop of the chicken salad and sprinkle with the almonds.
