Curry Chicken Salad

During, the summertime all of us are enjoying a wonderful time outdoors (the best way we can). This could mean having a picnic in your own backyard or eating lunch on the back porch. For a nice summer sandwich, I have a Curry Chicken Salad recipe that you are going to love. What I did was shred up some rotisserie chicken, add cream cheese (room temperature), and other ingredients. The Curry Powder really stood out in the chicken salad for that wonderful extra flavor. Loaves of bread that pair well with the Curry Chicken Salad are:

  • Whole Wheat Bread
