Main dish

Chicken Curry Salad

4- to 5-pound whole rotisserie chicken

1/4 cup raisins

1/4 cup coarsely chopped candied walnuts

1 cup diced green apple, such as Granny Smith (from 1 to 2 apples)

1 cup diced celery (from 2 to 3 ribs)

1/4 cup diced red onion (from about 1/4 onion)

3/4 cup mayonnaise, (preferably Hellman’s)

1 tablespoon mild curry powder

1 tablespoon light brown sugar

Salt and freshly ground pepper

If the chicken is hot, allow it to cool slightly, then remove and discard the skin and transfer the meat to a large mixing bowl. (Keep the bones for making stock, if desired.) The yield is 5 to 6 cups of meat.

Add the raisins, walnuts, apple, celery and onion to the bowl and toss to combine.

Combine the mayonnaise, curry powder and brown sugar in a medium bowl; fold it into the chicken mixture and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Makes 8 servings.
