Curried Chicken Salad

With Valentines Day right around the corner, I am already thinking of a Valentines Day Tea  Party…My daughter Elizabeth and her little Winston will be here.   You know me… this is my happiness; to have my children and grandchildren coming and going and coming back again.  My Creativity is stirring  and  I am thinking….what will we do, what I will serve?   I realize that I have been hungry for Curried Chicken Salad sandwiches, among other things.  So I made up a batch for Steve and I… for now…while I think about our happy Valentines Day yet to come and the rest of the Tea party ideas…and well,  I'll am still working on the rest, but here is the chicken salad recipe for now.

2 Chicken Breasts; cooked and cubed

1 small onion; chopped

2 stalks of celery; finely chopped

3 Tablespoons Capers

1/4 cup chopped almonds or cashews

2 hardboiled eggs, chopped and
2/3 cups mayonnaise

1-2 teaspoons Curry Powder (I used 2).

2 teaspoons Red Palm Oil (optional) and 1 teaspoon lemon juice; mix all together.

It is good….

and hits the spot….

and helps inspire the rest of my tea party plans.

Today it is tucked nicely in this healthy low-carb  bun...

which tastes very good..

open faced might be nice for the tea party… or perhaps a thin soft bread with the crusts removed and cut in triangles… I will let you know.

Curried Chicken Salad

  1. 2 Chicken breasts; cooked and cubed
  2. 2 stalks of celery
  3. 1 small white onion chopped
  4. 3 Tablespoons capers
  5. 2 hard-boiled eggs chopped
  6. 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  7. 1-2 teaspoons curry powder
  8. 1/4 cup chopped almonds or cashews
  9. 2 teaspoons Red Palm Oil
  10. 1 teaspoon  fresh lemon juice
  11. Salt and pepper to taste
Optional additions: chopped apples, cranberries, raisins or grapes


Put all ingredients in a large bowl.  Mix together.  Use for sandwiches or on top of greens for a salad.  This makes a great S meal for Trim Healthy Mama cooks.  I used  the low carb flax buns to make the sandwiches above.  

Update: Here is the tea party link where I made these as tea sandwiches


  1. Looks delicious! And so do the sandwich buns! I have also been thinking about a valentine's tea! I will certainly love to read your ideas!
    Hope you are having a lovely day!

  2. Good Morning, From the windy plains!
    I think these look just scrumptious Pam! I love the taste and smell of curry. I made a hot chicken curry dish for dinner the other night.
    I think a Valentines tea is a great idea! I am feeling inspired just reading about the planning thoughts!
    My first phase of my Blog makeover was installed last night!
    Blessings, Roxy

  3. Good Afternoon Pam!

    This looks just divine and so perfect for a tea party! Now, you got me all inspired. I might have to make this for my birthday lunch (or maybe I can hint this to Roxy) and she can make it for my birthday lunch. :) Hee-hee!
    Oh my and those flax seed buns look so good as well. You go girl!

    Well, we are stuck in the house and I'm telling you a few times I thought we weren't in Colorado anymore. It's blowing hard with a lot of dirt. Can you believe they closed the interstate down? Scary, we really need some moisture!

    Have a wonderful week Pam!
