Step-by-Step:

Nothing to this but to combine all the ingredients!  Feel free to use whatever leftover cooked chicken you'd like, or make your own.  I saved time in this recipe by picking up a rotisserie chicken. I also swapped out mayo for the very healthy Greek yogurt - nonfat and lots of protein.  Have fun with this and enjoy!

My little boy was adamant that we serve our curried chicken salad on naan, so we did.  But feel free to have yours on crackers, on a bed of lettuce, on a croissant, as a wrap, or however the mood strikes your fancy.
