Rotisserie Chicken Meal: Curried Chicken Salad

Rotisserie Chicken is amazing. It’s fairly inexpensive, especially if you buy it at Costco or Sam’s Club for $5, and you can do so much with it. I buy one every week and usually make it stretch between 2 meals, so I thought I’d start some postings here showing all the variations you can do with this help from the deli. It is just cooked chicken, but it tastes so frickin’ good.

First item up? Curried Chicken Salad. I love chicken salad, especially in the summer when I can buy all kinds of fresh vegetables and herbs at the farmers market to use in the salad or on a sandwich. The base recipe is pretty simple, just 2 c chicken from the 4 c you get off of a rotisserie chicken, and a few Tbs. each sour cream and mayo. Add some Dijon and whatever add-ins you want. This time I decided to do something I’ve seen a few times and run with the curry. It’s really good, especially in a wrap with some spring mix.
If you decide not to use rotisserie and cook your chicken, stay away from the poaching method. Roast it in the oven or gently grill it up.
I use the half sour cream, half mayo mixture to help cut back on the fat and calories, using low fat sour cream with some Dijon helps spice up the mixture and adds some flavor.

  • Mmmm, I love this idea.

    I tend to buy one ‘Rotisserie’ Chicken a fortnight (sorry that sounds so strange as here in Ausralia we just call it a BBQ chook lol) and this is a great idea!

    Thanks for the inspiration!
