Light and Easy Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

Julia Millay Walsh

Claire Thomas of The Kitchy Kitchen brings us a light and easy go-to lunch.

Curried chicken salad is a favorite of mine. It's so flavorful, light, and easy to whip together. To make mine extra light, I switched out mayo for Greek yogurt, and added tons of fresh herbs. It's the perfect lunch! This recipe relies heavily on a delicious curry powder, so make sure to use the best! I love this one from Spice Station.


3 single poached chicken breasts, shredded

1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt

1/4 cup cashews

1/2 cup celery, diced

1/2 cup grapes

1 1/2 tablespoons curry powder

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 cup chutney

2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

2 tablespoons chopped green onion

2 tablespoons chopped basil

kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

butter lettuce


Combine all of the ingredients, except for the butter lettuce, in a bowl. Pop the salad in the fridge, and let it sit for a couple of hours to let the flavors mingle. To serve, scoop some chicken salad into the lettuce, roll up, and enjoy!
