Curried Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Sometimes I feel as though the more I cook, the lazier I get. That may be a bit of a stretch, but my point is, good food doesn’t have to take forever. Or include 20+ ingredients. Phew, right?

When I make meals like this, I think to myself, “I need more meals like THIS!” Because when I have more time in the evenings, I can do more productive things like workout, spend time with the hubs, blog, walk the dog, lesson plan, read, catch up on TV (okay that’s not productive), and I would say clean, but let’s face it, I’m more likely to do some calisthenics, which I hate doing.

Tasty…check! Quick…check! Simple…check! Healthy…check! Great as leftovers…bonus!

Chicken salad is something I recommend to my patients a lot, for all of the above reasons. Plus, it’s high in protein and something you can keep on hand for a busy week or…just because it’s delicious. I know this fall when I’m busy teaching during the dinner time hours, I will be looking for more recipes just like this one. Busy people, rejoice and enjoy!

Yesterday was an awesome day for many reasons…

  • A dialysis patient of mine got a kidney transplant over the weekend and is doing wonderful!!!! :-D I’ve been working in the world of dialysis for over a year, and this is the 2nd transplant I’ve seen come about. It’s big, exciting stuff!
  • Mid Ohio Nutrition Specialists officially opened our office yesterday – we are feeling rather accomplished!
  • My rental car is awesome…and not the Titan monster truck they wanted to give me at first – phew. But it’s not the 2011 Camero that I wanted, either…
  • I had a killer elliptical workout – I didn’t talk myself out of a workout even though it didn’t happen until after dinner and cranked out 3 hard miles in 33:45 on level 7 of 10.

Questions: What was the highlight of your yesterday? Do you like chicken salad?

Be well,


  1. I’m glad yesterday was a good one!

    I’m not so much a chicken/tuna salad person, but my boss is a major creature of habit, and that’s all he eats for lunch every single day. Yeah… it’s weird.

  2. I love chicken salad…a long as it doesn’t contain celery! Your recipe looks great.

  3. I love curried chicken salad!! Looks delicious!

  4. I think I’ve had a chicken salad sandwich once in my life. It was at Tim Hortons and it was good. My mom never made stuff like that when I was younger because my dad has an issue with anything white (mayo, yogurt, cottage cheese, sour cream – all of it) and it just wasnt worth listening to him complain. :)

  5. I’m so with you – I’ve become so lazy with my cooking. The fewer ingredients, the better! I LOVE chicken salad!

  6. I love chicken salad! I do love that you did both mayo and greek yogurt. Great idea!!
    Glad to hear your patient is doing well. It is always so special to get positive feedback. It makes your job that much more rewarding. :)

  7. HI Nicole, what a stellar day. That has to be so rewarding seeing transplant patients flourish!!! And YAY for the office opening! VERY happy for you! Hope the trend continues and today is a good day!!!

  8. Oh my gosh I love chicken salad ESPECIALLY when curry is involved. It’s been too long since I’ve made this. Great recipe and congrats on opening up shop!

  9. Nicole, I have been a dialysis nurse since Aug. 1987 and I have to agree with you those transplants make for great days !
    I made your southwest turkeyburgers with the avocada drsg last night . It was wonderful . Plan to make the pnut butter pretzel balls today IF we dont have to deal with getting ready for a hurricane. thanks for ALL the great recipes and the great pictures that entice me to try the recipes.

  10. yum! I boiled some chicken yesterday to make chicken salad with. Think that will be my “dinner” tonight!
