When I’m at a loss for what to bring to work for lunch Paleo Curry Chicken Salad always hits the spot. It’s easy to make when time is short and tastes great to boot!
In my opinion life is much easier when you have a plan. For example, when I’m low on chicken bone broth roast chicken goes on the menu for the week. If you’re roasting one chicken, why not roast two at the same time?
Planning for roast chicken for dinner and Paleo curry chicken salad for work lunches makes menu planning a breeze.

How to Make Paleo Curry Chicken Salad
In a small bowl add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to a cup of water. Cut up two red apples and add to the lemon water. This will help keep the apples from turning brown. Let the apples soak in the water for at least five minutes.
Cut up the roast chicken into bite size pieces and put in a large bowl. Add the celery, raisins, cashews and drained apples. In a small bowl mix the mayonnaise, curry, honey, salt and pepper. Add to the chicken. Stir. Use your favorite curry; it can be hot, spicy curry or sweet curry or masala. My favorite is the sweet curry. Delicious chicken salad! Yum!
