Today, we will use chicken breasts preferably organically grown, which will supply our protein. The garnishes are mango chutney, low fat mayonnaise, along with salad and pine nuts and celery, and red peppers; all healthy foods for us. Let’s get to it.
Curry chicken salad in pita bread
- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 cup Juice of one lemon
- 1/2 cup red pepper chopped
- 2 tbsp low-fat mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp low-fat sour cream

- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 1/3 cup dark raisins
- 2 tbsp chopped chives
- 2 tbsp unsalted pine nuts
- 1 Freshly ground black pepper to taste
- 1 Dash of Sea Salt to taste
- Add chicken to large saucepan and cover with lemon juice, and just enough water to cover the chicken breasts.
- Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, draining the chicken and allowing it to cool.
- In large mixing bowl, mix the low-fat mayonnaise, low-fat sour cream, mango chutney and curry powder, continuing to stir, while adding raisins, celery and red pepper.
- As the chicken cools, cut into 1/2 inch pieces and add it to the mixing bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
- Add the chives and pine nuts just before serving. Season with freshly ground pepper and dash of sea salt.
