Curry powder adds flavor and medicinal properties to this low-fuss chicken salad. The turmeric spice in curry powder contains a compound called curcumin, which functions as both an anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant.
- Prep time
- Total Time
- • ½ cup frozen peas
- • 5 ounces cooked chicken breast, shredded or chopped
- • 1 tablespoon reduced-fat mayonnaise
- • 1 tablespoon minced onion (or more to taste)
- • 1 teaspoon curry powder
Rinse the green peas in a colander under cold water until thawed.
In a small bowl mash the chicken breast. Add the mayonnaise, onion, curry powder, and peas to the bowl, and gently mix until all of the ingredients are combined.
Serving suggestion: Serve on a bed of baby spinach leaves in ½ whole grain pita or in a low-carb whole grain wrap (look for one less than 100 calories)
Note: For a sweeter salad, use ½ cup diced red grapes in place of the green peas.
