CURRY CHICKEN SANDWICH

This robust and flavorful curry chicken salad sandwich is made with a mixture of Greek yogurt and mayonnaise so it has a much lighter taste with more health benefits than your typical calorie packed chicken salad. Greek yogurt not only provides a nice tangy bite, but it’s also full of probiotics and live cultures that help aid digestion and speed up metabolism. 

We recommend using this curry chicken salad as a sandwich recipe between two toasted slices of a pumpkin bagel (for a hint of sweetness), a drizzle of sriracha (for heat), a few cucumbers (for crunch, and lastly, a handful of kale leaves (for extra health benefits) but feel free to use it on whatever vessel you care for!
