This crowd-pleasing pasta salad is potluck-perfect for barbecue season.
12 ounces  large whole-wheat pasta shells
2 tablespoons  slivered almonds (1/2 ounce)
1 tablespoon  curry powder preferably Madras
1/2 cup  reduced-fat mayonnaise
1/2 cup  low-fat plain yogurt or reduced-fat sour cream
1/3 cup  mango chutney
1 teaspoon  turmeric
1/4 teaspoon  ground cinnamon
Pinch ground cayenne pepper or to taste
2 cups  cooked chicken cut into 1-inch pieces (see Tip)
1/2 cup  raisins
1/2 cup  chopped scallions (4 scallions)
1/2 cup  diced celery
salt & freshly ground pepper to taste

Tip: To poach chicken breasts: Place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a medium skillet or saucepan and add lightly salted water to cover; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes.
Curried Chicken & Pasta Salad Recipe at
Cook pasta in a large pot of lightly salted water until al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain and rinse. Set aside.

Toast almonds in a small dry skillet over low heat, stirring constantly, until golden, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool. Return the pan to the stovetop and add curry powder. Toast, stirring constantly, over low heat until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a small bowl; stir in mayonnaise, yogurt, chutney, turmeric, cinnamon and ground red pepper.

Combine chicken, raisins, scallions, celery and the reserved pasta in a large bowl. Add the dressing and toss to coat. Taste and adjust seasonings with salt, pepper and ground red pepper. Garnish with the toasted almonds.

very good
so we forgot to buy scallions and couldn't find mango chutney, but it still turned out delicious. we used a rotisserie chicken to save time. i can see where the scallions and mango would have enhanced the flavor, but with the rotisserie (original flavor) it wasn't lacking. bet it's even better after a night in the fridge.
