Curried Chicken Salad

chicken salad

Ok. So I didn’t make blackened chicken salad last night, I just wasn’t feeling it. I did; however, make Curried Chicken Salad. I got the idea from Foodiecall’s Blog,who made Curry Egg Salad that looked so good I had to try it. I was a little worried that my husband might not dig my “chick food” chicken salad, so I opted to get him one of those rotisserie chickens from the grocery store, you know…just in case.

I had about 2 pounds of chicken breast thawed. I put the chicken in a baking dish and added a 1/2 cup of water, then cooked in a 375° oven for about 45 minutes. While I was cooking the chicken I hard boiled 4 eggs for my chicken salad. I just recently discovered the correct way to hard boiling an egg.

*Put the eggs in a pot, make sure they don’t crack, fill the pot with cold water so the water covers the eggs about 1 inch. If you add salt to the water it makes it easier to peel the eggs later, I was completely missing this steps. Add the lid to the pot, bring the water to a boil, once the water boils remove the pot from the heat, but don’t take off the lid, you don’t want the water to cool too quickly. Leave the eggs in the hot water for 10-15 minutes then chill the eggs by running them under cool water.

Ingredients

2 lbs cooked chicken breast, cut into small bite-sized pieces
4 hard boiled eggs, chopped. I only used the egg whites, but it’s your preference
1/2 red onion, chopped
2 stalk celery, chopped
1/2 cup crushed walnuts
1/2 cup mayonnaise, or more if you like (I used a little more)
1 teaspoon curry
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 fresh ground pepper

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix.

My husband ate two sandwiches last night and one this morning, I don’t even know why I worry anymore. I guess it’s rotisserie chicken tonight.

Fried Egg Sandwiches

On nights when I am way too tired for anything that might take more than two minutes to fix, my tummy relies on a fried egg sandwich. It’s my mother’s fault really she started me on the grilled cheese. The famous grilled cheese, my husband is really good at making these. My mom used to make these famous grilled cheeses for me too, did you know you get addicted to cheese? You do. I heard it on Ellen. A doctor said it so I know it’s true something about opiates. It has opiates or you have opiates that get released. I don’t remember, but you get addicted. Anywho, I am addicted to cheese and egg sandwiches.

Last night, I fell asleep right after work. Crashed out. Oops. For 2 hours. Woke up long enough to watch Ugly Betty and Grey’s and make my fried egg sandwich.

I use 2 eggs, I’m not sure if that is healthy, but it fills the bread better than just 1 egg. Crack the eggs into the pan, like you would if you were cooking them sunny side up, but then break the yellow part. So, it’s fried eggs. Then add 2 pieces of buttered bread, with a slice or two of cheese. Then you grill the sandwich like a regular grilled cheese with the egg in the middle, until the cheese has melted around the egg and the bread is done. It’s so good, and it’s so fast I didn’t miss a minute of Ugly Betty.
