Spicy Curry Chicken Salad Sandwiches

To start this blog off I figured I would keep it simple, yet spicy.  I love sandwiches...I mean who doesn't...but the challenge is to keep it somewhat healthy.  This Curry Chicken Salad Sandwich is one of my favorites.  The chicken salad is simple and has a little bit of kick with jalapeño peppers and jalapeño mustard (feel free to use regular mustard).  To feel even better about it I use whole wheat rolls and lots of lettuce.  You can cook your own chicken or buy it cooked to make your life that much easier.  I poach a bunch of chicken on the weekend to have for the week so that is what I use.  Let me know what you think...I look forward to sharing my recipes with everyone.  Cheers! 

  • ½ Cup Greek Yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons Curry Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 Pound Shredded Chicken
  • 2 Stalks Celery, sliced
  • 1 or 2 Jalapeño Peppers, sliced into half moons (remove seeds to reduce heat, if desired)
  • 2 Scallions, sliced
  • Lettuce of choice
  • 4 Whole Wheat Rolls or 8 slices Whole Wheat Bread
  • Jalapeño Mustard

First, mix the Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, curry, sea salt, and cayenne pepper.

Second, add the chicken, celery, jalapeños, and scallions.

Finally, divide the chicken salad between four sandwiches, load up the lettuce, and dress with jalapeño mustard.

Simple but amazing sandwich you can enjoy alone or with a bowl of soup!  Enjoy!
