Curried Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I am starving.  Really.  So hungry right now.  And I want to make this....but I don't have all  the ingredients.
Sigh. 

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!

Ingredients :


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

Directions :

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!
