My last curry post for a while, I promise!

Curried Chicken and Couscous Salad
(adapted from
  • 2 cups cooked couscous (or rice)
  • 2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast (I used 1 cooked breast)
  • 1/3 cup celery, sliced
  • 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons peach or mango chutney
  • 1-2 teaspoons ground curry powder (to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
In a large bowl, combine the couscous, chicken, celery, green onions, bell peppers, sour cream, mayonnaise, chutney, curry and salt. Mix well, cover and refrigerate until chilled. This serves 2 adults.

I know I seem to have a one-track curry mind lately! I am trying to use the bottle of mango chutney I bought, since it was a good 4 bucks. Plus we're not bored yet and are still Indian-food intrigued. This recipe is a lot like the chicken salad I made last week, but this is more grain based with the couscous. I like this better, it's a versatile salad! Russell said it tasted like stuffing (I guess a good thing) but I think that was the celery talking. I might just skip that next time. The flavors were good, texture great, red pepper and green onion added a lot. I might add some peas in next time for more veggie power.
