I have been falling in love with Indian food lately. In fact, not too long ago, I fixed a delicious Slow Cooker Curry Chicken, but it takes FOREVER to get done. I wanted something quick and easy, but still give me that delicious Indian food flavor, so I created this recipe for Curry Ginger Chicken Salad Crostini — which hits the spot and only takes 15 minutes to make.
I adapted the recipe that I found in my Gourmet Gardens cookbook and put a few little twists on it to make it my own.
- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 2 tablespoons Gourmet Garden Chili Pepper
- 2 tablespoons Gourmet Garden Ginger
- 1 teaspoon of Gourmet Garden cilantro
- 2 tsp mild curry powder
- 1/2 cups grapes sliced in half
- 1/4 cup golden raisins
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 3 cups of shredded cooked chicken breast
- 1 head of leaf lettuce
- 1 pat of butter for grilling bread
- 1 loaf of sliced Italian bread slices
- Add ingredients in the bowl in order above, excluding chicken. Mix together and then add chicken to the mixture. Set aside
- Take your bread and butter it on both sides and grill or broil until browned.
- Pile chicken on top and serve
I did use a couple of shortcuts to cut down on the cooking time on this recipe.
I used Tyson Grilled and Ready chicken breast strips and this really yummy bread I found at WalMart. It smells amazing through the bag, so you can imagine what it smells like when it is cooked.
The chicken takes about 3-4 minutes to cook in the microwave and the bread takes just a couple of minutes to toast in the broiler or on the stove in a grill pan.
I topped the pieces with a few more slices of almonds and it was a hit with the family!
For me, I took my chicken salad and wrapped it in a piece of leaf lettuce and made like a burrito for a super healthy dinner option.
