Chicken fruit salad curry

One day I was invited to a beach picnic, and asked to bring a salad. A friend and I got together in his kitchen and concocted a curried chicken salad with grapes. It was delicious, but we forgot to write down the recipe. After some more experimentation, I have come up with this recipe. I don't know if it is the same as what we made that day at the beach, but it is similar and delicious.


(Serves 8-10)


  1. Make the sauce by mixing together all ingredients except the chicken and the grapes. Season to taste (sample by dipping a grape into the sauce and then eating it).
  2. Broil the chicken breasts (3-5 minutes on each side in a preheated broiler), then dice or shred into small bite-sized pieces.
  3. Cook the pasta according to package directions, and drain.
  4. Mix chopped chicken with 300 g of whole grapes. Add the cooked drained pasta. Cover with the sauce. Mix well. Add more grapes to taste. My taste is to add vast quantities of grapes.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 25 minutes including cooking the chicken and pasta.
Precision: no need to measure.
