Curried Chicken Salad Wraps

Brian and I decided to stay home for Easter and also decided on a less than traditional lunch and dinner menu. We headed to the market with no real plan (which is completely unlike my list driven self) and decided to the let the ingredients guide us. We picked up shrimp, rotisserie chicken, fresh jalapenos, and lots of cilantro. Due to not having a list, I forgot jam, raspberries and yogurt.

After assessing the ingredients the refrigerator, we decided lunch would include Curried Chicken Wraps stuffed with a bunch of fresh veggies and grapes. For dinner, we whipped up grilled shrimp, cilantro rice and asparagus. Definitely not your traditional Honey Baked Ham and deviled eggs, but delicious in their own right.

With the help of a store bought rotisserie chicken, these Curried Chicken Wraps couldn’t have been easier. I added in celery for crunch, red pepper for color and grapes for sweetness. Rolled up with lettuce, cilantro and Colby-Jack Cheese, we couldn’t have asked for a tastier Easter lunch. Although I did kinda miss the deviled eggs!

Sounds delicious, and it’s perfect for those of us who have leftover dyed eggs in the refrigerator.

One of the few things that I miss the most about not eating meat is chicken salad. It really was one of my favorites (on a separate note… Whole Foods makes a fantastic vegan chicken salad… i’m addicted to it).

I love curried chicken. I can’t wait to try this, but I like the idea of replacing the mayo with Greek yogurt like another reader.

I love curried chicken salad. It’s always so good and has a delicious tang I can’t get enough of. Using rotisserie chicken makes it even simpler. Thanks for the tip and I hope you had a nice Easter.

I love curried chicken salad. Sometimes I add some apricot preserves, if I don’t have any grapes. Yummy made with orzo, sans bread and sprinkled with slivered almonds.

Thank you- this was just perfect. I used dried cranberries instead of grapes and added chopped carrots, green bell peppers, and a dash of celery salt. The flavors were spot on :)
