When I come home tired after a long day, I thank my day-before-self for roasting a chicken. Having cooked chicken on hand means I can make a quick and healthy chicken salad with the leftovers.

This is when it’s also handy if you keep your pantry stocked with some healthy basics like raisins and nuts. You can throw them into this chicken salad to power up the texture and natural sweetness. We’re also going to make this chicken salad a lot more fun by adding in some unconventional spice.

This curried chicken salad makes a great lunch or dinner meal when served over greens, but you can also use it as a protein-packed veggie dip.
