jalapeno-cranberry curried chicken salad

If you’re trying to get more protein in your diet, skinless organic chicken breast is a great protein to incorporate as part of a hormone healthy diet. This jalapeño-cranberry curried chicken salad is satiating, jam packed with flavor, and can easily be modified into a salmon, tuna, or quinoa dish as well.

Cranberries are one of the superfoods because they have an anti-inflammatory effect, thanks to antioxidants. Be sure to buy these dried and unsweetened.

Turmeric provides similar anti-inflammatory benefits, especially when combined with black pepper, which is why you’ll find both in this recipe (your curry powder should contain turmeric – I love this brand!).

Jalapeños – Yes, these will add some heat, but are rich in vitamin A, C, and antioxidants. They’re great for your immune system as well.

Ingredients

This recipe makes about 4 – 5 servings of chicken salad.

2 cups cooked boneless + skinless organic chicken breast
3 tbsp soy-free vegenaise, I love Follow Your Heart avocado oil vegenaise
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 jalapeño, finely diced. Take out the seeds if you don’t like things hot 😉
1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped
1/4 cup red / purple onion, finely diced
1/4 cup dried, unsweetened cranberries
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp pink Himalayan or sea salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Process

  1. Cook and shred or dice the chicken breast. My preferred way to do this is in the Instant Pot on the poultry setting with a little bit of water or chicken broth. So easy! When the chicken has cooled off a bit, shred or dice it and set aside.
  2. Add the vegenaise, lemon juice, curry powder, garlic, and salt to a large bowl and mix together.
  3. Add the chicken and add in the diced jalapeño, onion, cilantro, almonds, and cranberries.
  4. Mix together and serve on lettuce wraps, almond flour wraps, with veggies, etc. Take a bit. Flavor. Packed. Am I right??
