Servings 4


  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, plain non-fat (I used Fage)
  • 2 tablespoons light sour cream
  • 3/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 ounces Essential Grilled Chicken, 1/4-1/2″ dice (about 1 pound pre-cook weight)
  • 3/4 cup celery, 1/4-1/2″ dice
  • 2 tablespoons scallions, sliced
  • 1/4 cup roasted unsalted cashews, chopped
  • juice of 1 lime, more to taste
  • 4 whole wheat 100 calorie thin hamburger buns, I used Sara Lee


  • In a medium bowl combine yogurt, sour cream, curry powder, salt and pepper. Whisk well to combine.
  • Add chicken, celery, scallions, cashews and lime juice. Stir well until all ingredients are evenly coated. If it seems too dry you can add more lime juice.
  • Divide into 4 equal portions (approximately 5 ounces each) and scoop onto buns. Serve immediately.

  1. Ask anyone what my favorite sandwich is in the world and they will say chicken salad. I just love it to pieces and this version looks amazing

  2. This looks great. I adore chicken salad and my very favorite one has cashews in it as well. The cabbage salad is so pretty and colorful next to it as well.

  3. I love those buns but haven't had them in a long time. The photos are incredible and the recipe sounds delish!

  4. Holy protein! I love a good curried chicken salad and I actually have some cashews from a tin of nuts and chocolate I got at Christmas.

  5. I finally got around to making this last night. Delicious! I was very tempted to have it for breakfast, too. ; )
