Curry Chicken Pasta Salad
I love getting recipes from friends that turn into staples in my home. This is one of those recipes. My husband and I accompanied my mother, sister and brother-in-law to some friends' home on a wonderful farm, complete with chickens that lay eggs on the front porch sofa and beautiful horses roaming the property. It was here that we ate Curry Chicken Pasta Salad for the first time. Their special ingredient that differed from other recipes was the grapes which were a great compliment to the curry flavor.
3 lbs. chicken, cooked, diced/shredded
6 oz. dry pasta, cooked and drained
4 Whole ribs celery, thinly sliced - leaves included (use interior ribs)
1 c. Grapes, halved, more if preferred
3/4 c. Almonds, slivered
1/2 c. Mayonnaise
1/2 c. Sour cream
1 c. Heavy cream
3 T. Curry, more or less to taste
1 T. Sugar, more or less to taste
1 t. Kosher salt
Black pepper to taste
Boil chicken to cook. Boil pasta in chicken broth.
Dice/shred chicken. Drain pasta.
Mix together mayonnaise, sour cream, heavy cream, curry powder, sugar, salt, and pepper. Whisk together until well combined.
Combine chicken, drained pasta, sliced celery, grapes, and almonds in a large bowl. Pour curry dressing over the top. Fold together with a rubber spatula.
