Seriously, this is one of my most-loved chicken salad recipes. Eat it by itself, stuff it in a pita pocket, roll it in a tortilla....or, as the name and pic suggest ~ make a pretty and low-carb lettuce wrap!
I sometimes try to make it just for myself. You know, make a batch for a healthy and delicious lunch option that will last me a few days because it's so good I don't get tired of it. But these beggars that live with me always have to stick their noses in my business! ; )
Turns out they love it, too.....so that batch that is supposed to last me a few days usually lasts ONE. Ahhhh....the joys of family life! Sharing is sometimes highly overrated.
Curried Chicken Lettuce Wraps
The pic doesn't do it justice........just trust me. I like good food!
1/2 cup sour cream (or reduced-fat sour cream)
1/4 cup mango chutney
1/4 cup mayonnaise (or light mayo)
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup celery, diced
1 apple, cored and chopped
1/4 cup red onions, diced
2 cups diced cooked chicken breasts
1/2 cup dried cranberries
12 lettuce leaves (I use leafy green - or serve on a bed of fresh spinach)
1/4 cup sliced almonds
Mix first 11 ingredients together (sour cream to dried cranberries).
Put approximately 1/4 cup mixture on lettuce leaf and sprinkle with 1 tsp almonds.
Roll up and enjoy!
