|I don't usually like the lettuce/bun substitution, but here it works.|
|I swear that raw chicken was not actually touching any of the other ingredients.|
It just looks like it might be because of the angle of the picture.
|Don't crowd the breasts together too much or they'll just kind of stew.|
I could only get three at a time into my pan.
Add the mixture to a large bowl. Chop the chicken into small pieces (I did it by pulsing the chicken in the food processor a few times, but you could do it with a knife) and add it to the bowl as well. Add the walnuts to the bowl, and mix everything together evenly.
|I like my chicken finely chopped, which is why I do it in the food processor.|
Using a knife will give you a chunkier chicken salad.
Taste the chicken salad and add salt and pepper as necessary.
- I served this on the leaves from some hearts of romaine. The ridge on the back of a romaine lettuce leaf provides some structure and allows you to hold the lettuce and chicken salad like a hot dog without everything falling out.
- The amount of salt and pepper you add is up to you. Every brand of curry powder is slightly different, and some of them have salt added already. That's why I recommend tasting the chicken salad before you decide how much salt it needs.
- There's no reason not to do this recipe with leftover chicken. Unless you have a lot of leftover chicken, though, you'll probably need to adjust the quantities of the other ingredients.
