Curried Tarragon Chicken Salad
For this recipe you will need:
Canned Chicken, drained and broth reserved
Finely Minced Fresh Red Onion
Sandwich Bread, whole wheat preferred
Begin by mixing about 1 cup Canned Chicken with approximately 2 Tablespoons Mayo. It will look rather dry; slowly add in the reserved Chicken Broth, 1 Tablespoon at a time, until the Chicken is moist and binds together.
Add the finely minced fresh Red Onion, about 1 Tablespoon. Sprinkle in Dried Tarragon, about 1 Teaspoon, and taste. Now is the time to add the Curry Powder. Start with 1/8 teaspoon, stir in and adjust to taste. My family likes curry flavor so I use more: up to 1/3 teaspoon. Season with Black Pepper. Gently fold in 1 Tablespoon Sliced Almonds. Serve on Sandwich Bread with a Lettuce Leaf.
Also try adding a bit of fruit: some Mandarin Oranges, halved Red Grapes or finely chopped Raisins are all delicious additions.
