Leftover Chicken Curry Sandwiches. Looking for a simple and flavorful dish to make this week? Then look no further.  These can be made with quickly poached chicken breast, store-bought rotisserie chicken or in my case leftover chicken breasts! It is such a great combination of flavor and texture. Curry powder has a deep and earthy flavor from a blend of coriander, cumin, turmeric, and other spices. But don’t worry, it’s not spicy! I love that you can make this the night before and have tomorrows dinner practically finished.  Let me know what you think in the comments below. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Leftover Chicken Curry Sandwiches

Three cooked boneless skinless chicken breasts (You could also use a rotisserie chicken.)
1 cup real mayonnaise
One tablespoon shallot, finely diced.
1/2 cup celery, diced.
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, roughly chopped. (optional)
One cup halved grapes (optional)
One heaping tablespoon apricot preserves
One tablespoon lemon juice

1-1/2 tablespoons curry powder
Pinch kosher salt
Cracked black pepper to taste.


In a small bowl add mayonnaise, curry, apricot, lemon, salt, pepper and mix well.

Dice chicken into bite size pieces and add to a large bowl along with shallot, grapes, and celery.

Now toss your chicken with curried mayonnaise and adjust seasonings if needed. Toss with nuts before serving. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight before serving. (The longer you wait, the more flavorful it will be!)

Serve tucked in fresh croissants or rolls. You can even serve it in a bowl for dipping with crackers or spread over crostini. Yum!
