Curry Chicken Salad recipe and Art Post! - The art of Thornwolf — LiveJournal
Curry Chicken Salad recipe and Art Post!
I made a really tasty curry chicken salad tonight on a whim (well, I had to use the chicken that was in the fridge somehow and this family is leftover-phobic) so I figured I'd share my happy accident with you.

-I used the meat from one of those precooked chickens you get at the grocery store. I had half a breast and the legs and thighs left over so I used those - Chopped FINE
-1 stalk of celery, chopped
-3 green onions (the white parts only) chopped
-3/4 cups of mayonnaise (I use olive oil mayo)
-1 tbs soy sauce
-1 tbs lemon juice
-1 1/2 tsp curry powder
-1/4 tsp white pepper
-3-4 shakes of tabasco sauce

Mix together, scoop on top of chopped romaine lettuce, serve with cherry juice infused Craisins (oh my god this is an amazing addition). Watch people get up for seconds. :)

I'm making chicken stock with the carcass and the rest of the leftover celery/onions/carrots/green onions we had in the fridge. Awesome way to get rid of the undesirable parts! Smells SOOOO good right now.

And now for art!

The curry sounds fantastic! Nice touch with the white pepper; I love that stuff. I've never tried olive oil mayo, is the flavor noticeably different?

Those autumn icons are lovely.

I originally bought white pepper to put in my tikka masala, but it's proven useful in most Asian inspired dishes as you don't want to use black pepper for those typically.

As for Olive Oil mayo, no, for typical mayonnaise purposes, there's no real noticeable difference. We bought it because when things don't matter taste wise we'll get lower sodium, "better fat" and "natural" things as much as possible. I should be using paleo friendly mayo (to ward off hidden sugars) but I'm super lazy with my condiments :P

The world needs more werewolves!

(And take the 10 minutes to make your own mayo!! You're a foodie!)

I actually don't eat mayo very often /except/ in stuff like this which I've only been making because J's dad likes it. Does it keep awhile or is it something that I'm going to have to throw out in a week? That's been my main concern. I'm lazy because I don't want to have to /keep/ making it XD
