Curried Chicken Salad and Apple Wraps
When I make these curried chicken salad and apple wraps for dinner, I know I’m in for a good lunch the next day.
For the most part, I pretty much fail at lunch. Especially during the work week. True story, I have had a chicken caesar salad every day for lunch for the past 2 weeks. With an insane amount of parmesan cheese of course. Is there such a thing as too much parmesan on a caesar salad? Because I’ve yet to encounter it.
So as you can tell, I put the minimal amount of effort into lunch time.
But the leftovers of this curried chicken salad are almost better the next day than they are made fresh. Whenever I make these, I’ll make a little extra so I can have delicious wraps for lunch the next few days.
I have a major food crush on chicken salad. And this curry and apple version might just be my favorite. If you get eeked out by mayonnaise, then this is the chicken salad for you. Instead of mayonnaise it’s made with nonfat greek yogurt. The yogurt pairs wonderfully with the curry flavor, and it’s less calories too.
The real star of this curried chicken salad is the mango ginger chutney. I found this little gem wandering the aisles of Trader Joe’s. It is sweet and slightly spicy, and comes alive when mixed with greek yogurt and lime. Mmmm! I could eat it with a spoon!
I keep the rest of the ingredients pretty simple. Just some shredded chicken, green apples and scallions.
This is the perfect recipe to use up leftover roasted chicken. Since the chicken is already cooked, I can have this dinner on the table in less than 15 minutes. If I don’t have leftover chicken, I’ll just pick up one of those rotisserie chickens at the grocery store. A real life saver on busy days.
Curried Chicken Salad and Apple Wraps
- 2 cups shredded cooked chicken*, I get my chicken from ButcherBox, which I highly recommend
- 1 medium green apple, unpeeled, chopped into 1/2" cubes
- 4 scallions, green and white parts chopped
- 5 ounces plain, nonfat greek yogurt** (about 1/2 cup)
- 5 ounces mango chutney, about 1/2 cup
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- zest of 1 lime
- juice of 1/2 lime, about 1 tablespoon
- 4 to rtillas***
- shredded lettuce
- In a small mixing bowl, make the curried greek yogurt sauce by combing the greek yogurt, chutney, curry powder, lime zest and lime juice. Set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the chicken, chopped apple and scallions. Top with the curried greek yogurt sauce, toss to combine.
- Warm your tortillas to make them soft, fill with curried chicken salad, top with shredded lettuce, and roll into a wrap.
- Curried chicken salad will keep in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 4 days.

Chicken salad + apples is such a magical combination.
I’m in love with this chicken salad, Natalie! I have the same problem with lunch. I feel like I should put more thought into it, and usually I end up with a PB&J sammy. Horrible, I know! This is such a creative, fun take on chicken salad (one of my favorites ever!). So pinning this, and maybe I can get my butt in gear to make it for this week! P.S. I may or may not be making a trip over to TJ’s right now just to find this chutney! Yum!
I’m always such a failure when it comes to lunches too! Especially when classes are in session. I love chicken salad and anything curry-flavoured!
What an great looking lunch – I love the sound of these creative wraps! The mango chutney and curry are such a awesome flavor combination and I am totally digging the greek yogurt and apple in here too – yum :) Pinned :)
These look so good – light and fresh and spring-y! I am ready for some summer food, that is for sure :)
Natalie, it’s like you knew that I got chicken breasts on sale and cooked them and shredded them this week. :) I always like to have some on hand for fast recipes. This chicken salad would be perfect! I adore curry anything, and I love apples in savory recipes. I think I know what I’m making for lunches next week. (I, too, get stuck in a lunch rut.)
YES! I need another lunch idea. I have been eating chicken and baked sweet potato for about 3 years..everyday NO LIE! I am the most boring food person ever. I love curry and apples…and obvs love chicken! Pinned!
This wrap sounds delicious Natalie! I promise, you’re definitely not failing at lunch with this one! Can I PLEASE eat that dressing/creamy delicious sauce with a spoon ?!
True Life: I get eeked out by mayonnaise. Greek yogurt for the win! I love those recipes that can do double duty and be used as work lunch the next day. I also love how easy and versatile a rotisserie chicken is to cook with. I bet apple is a great addition to chicken salad. Nice and crunchy!
your wraps looks so refreshing and light!
