Keto Curried Chicken Salad
- 3 cups cooked chicken, diced into cubes
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise

- 2 stalks celery – diced small
- 2 tablespoons minced red onion
- 1 clove garlic – minced
- 3 tablespoons curry powder
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- Juice of 1 lemon
- Salt and pepper
- Optional – 4 chopped hard boiled eggs
- Optional – 4 strips cooked bacon – crumbled
- Optional – 1/4 cup golden raisins (this is not low carb)
Combine all ingredients, salt to taste.
Serve in lettuce cups, over salad, in endive cups or with crudités.
oll time! Who else hasn’t quite found their New Year, New Me groove yet?
I’m not ready to put much effort into anything, really. My meal prep has to be on point, and I want easy everything. We’ve been starting our weeks lately with an entire sheet tray of chicken breast, that we season with salt and pepper and oven bake. It’s awesome for throwing together a simple chopped salad, or reheating alongside some steamed broccoli. But it’s definitely getting a little boring.
I’ve decided to kick it up a couple spicy notches so we don’t all die of food boredom. Curry powder is the pop of flavor I need! Plus, curry powder is like nature’s medicine and everyone is sick right now and to that, I say BE GONE! So what better way to use this miracle curry than some bland ole chicken salad. And thus, Keto Curried Chicken Salad is born.
I’m still super into the lettuce wraps lately, so anything I can shove in there and immediately into my gullet, I’m down. It’s effortless and filling, plus, I’m still not quite feeling the heavy foods lately. I know it’s winter and all, but I’m loving the light stuff and by golly, I’m gonna go with it! It’s nice when my fat tooth takes a vacation.
I’ve included some optional add-ins, one being bacon, because, bacon. Another being chopped egg. I dunno why, but I love chopped eggs in any creamy based salad – and when they’re missing, I get sad. So if you’re like me, boil a few and toss them in. The yolk creates another layer of yum when it blends in with the mayo. My last suggestion is for the peeps who aren’t adhering to Keto, and wanna add a little sweetness. Golden raisins are PERFECT in here, adding a chewy sweet bite against the pungent flavor and heat of curry powder. My next carb up day, I’m making this recipe and adding alllllll of the raisins! Try and stop me.
Now grab your lettuce and get to wrappin’, with this awesome Keto Curried Chicken Salad
