Curried Chicken Salad for Lunch

A while back I did a Curried Chicken Salad recipe for The girls liked it sooooo much, I decided to add it to our lunch menu again this week for a Mommy & Me Lunch!  Are you worried about the kiddos not liking chicken salad? Don’t be! The sweet raisins and crunch of the apple will appeal to even the pickiest eaters!

  • For my lunch, I place the Curried Chicken Salad over a bed of mixed greens, with  a side of fresh fruit and mini whole wheat crackers.
  • For the girls’ lunch, I paired the Curried Chicken Salad with whole wheat crackers, carrots and celery, fresh fruit and some cookies.

  2. I love curried chicken salad! I really like how you have the lunches separated with little compartments and a nice variety! In the kid’s lunch, I see a little bee and leaves coming out of the blueberries. Are those little gummies?
