6 servings

Chilling the poached chicken breasts in the cooking liquid ensures moist, succulent results in this curried chicken salad. Stuff into whole-wheat pita pockets with shredded lettuce.

ingredients

  • 2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1 1/2 pounds total), trimmed
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup mango chutney
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder or to taste
  • 1 tart apple, such as Granny Smith, cored and chopped
  • 1/4 cup currants or raisins

directions

Bring the broth and water to a boil a large shallow pan. Add the chicken and reduce the heat to low. Simmer, partially covered, until the chicken is no longer pink inside, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a shallow dish and pour the cooking liquid over the top. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour or overnight. Remove the chicken from the cooking liquid and dice.

Stir together the mayonnaise, yogurt, chutney and curry powder in a medium bowl until well blended. Add the diced chicken, apples and currants (or raisins) and toss until thoroughly coated.
