Curry, Tarragon & Cherry Chicken Salad

Curry, Tarragon & Cherry Chicken Salad


* Optional Substitution Note

Ingredients for up to 6 servings:

  • 1.5lb raw chicken breasts
  • 2/3 cup lite safflower mayonnaise (I used Hain)
  • 1/3 cup 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 2/3 cup naturally dried tart cherries
  • Herbs and spices:
    • 5 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
    • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • sea salt & pepper to taste


Step 1

Boil water in a large pot (or deep pan) and toss in raw chicken breasts. Allow the chicken breasts to cook for about 12-15 minutes, or until the chicken is completely cooked with no more raw, pink areas.

Step 2

Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the water and allow it to cool so that you can cut it into small pieces. Chop the chicken into smaller pieces, places the pieces in a bowl and place the chicken in the refrigerator to chill for at least 45 minutes.

Step 3

In a large bowl, add chilled chopped chicken and toss in the rest of the ingredients. Mix it together using a spatula and season to taste.

Approximate macros for 1 of 6 servings:

*** To further reduce the amount of calories, you can: a) use less safflower mayonnaise and more Greek yogurt; 2) reduce or remove the almonds; 3) use less dried tart cherries.***

About Kevin - author


Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
