Curried Chicken Pitas

September/October 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (113 votes)

Cranberries and pear are sweet counterpoints in this tangy curried chicken salad. Toasted sliced almonds add a nutty crunch.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I don't typically like fruit in my chicken salad, but the cranberry in particular gives it a great tartness and compliments the spice of the curry very well. The crunch from the almonds is a wonderful tactile element. Another home run...

Delicious Vegetarian Version with No Mayo!

This recipe sounded so delicious but had to modify it for my vegetarian daughter who despises mayonnaise and the result was fabulous. Here is my version:

1 single serving (5.3 oz) nonfat plain greek yogurt (Chobani)
1 small avocado
Splash of lime juice
1 tablespoon (or to taste) curry powder
1 can - 15.5 oz Chickpeas (Goya), drained and rinsed
1 ripe but firm pear, diced
1 stalk celery, finely diced
1/2 cup dried cranberries (Ocean Spray Reduced Sugar Craisins)
1/4 cup sliced or slivered almonds, toasted
4 4- to 5-inch whole-wheat pita breads, cut in half
2 cups sprouts

First smash the avocado. Add lime juice, greek yogurt and curry (I went a little heavier on the curry, you decide) and blend well. Add chickpeas, pears, celery, cranberries and almonds. Fold together. Stuff the pita, top with sprouts (I think shredded cabbage would be good as well) and enjoy!
