Do you find yourself looking for a good recipe for 'leftover' turkey or chicken during the Holidays? This was was from BETTER HOME AND GARDENS' 20-minute dinners (so it won't take long either)

Curry powder and sweet-hot mango chutney add exotic touches to classic chicken salad with red grapes. Serve the mixture atop full-flavored salad greens with a side of fresh cherries, or try it as a sandwich filling for croissants or wraps.
1⁄4 cup sliced or slivered almonds
1⁄4 cup mango chutney, snipped
2 tablespoons light mayonnaise dressing or plain low-fat yogurt
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 cups shredded or chopped deli-roasted chicken or turkey breast
1 cup seedless red grapes
halved Lettuce leaves

Start to finish: 20 minutes Makes 4 servings
In a shallow baking pan spread almonds in a single layer.
Bake in a 350° oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until nuts are a light golden brown, stirring once or twice to prevent overbrowning. Cool slightly.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine chutney, mayonnaise dressing, and curry powder.
Add chicken, grapes, and toasted nuts; toss gently to coat. Serve on lettuce leaves.

You're just gonna have to make some and enjoy it on my behalf :-) Chutney is not a common thing here in any flavor, but especially something as exotic as mango. lol

I so enjoy seeing what everyone has to share with recipes! Even if I can't make 'em myself, I can enjoy THINKING about y'all making them :-)

End of a long day, been a long week (oh wait, it's only Monday -- last week just sort of merged right into this one without a break). Went to Cordoba this evening to take our co-worker's daughters to piano and while they had their lessons we went to the book exchange. I found a few to try :-) But on the way home the smell of gas got stronger and stronger. When we dropped the girls off Ivan got out to check out the situation and it was pouring gas from somewhere and we prayed the rest of the way home that we wouldn't blow up. Ivan's working on it right now but we may have to take it to the mechanic in the morning. That's how it is with older cars, one thing after another. Last week the entire electrical system went out.

My baby girl arrives in exactly a month from tomorrow! (She might resent that term but no matter how old she gets, she'll always be my baby girl) I'm so excited! But concerned for her because she really does have a lot to do between now and then. I've suggested she see about cutting her hours at work (she works about 30 hours week in addition to carrying a full academic load) but they're pretty busy right now and she's not sure she can.

Made BLTs for supper after we got home; needed something quick and not too heavy. It's been a while since I made them and they tasted so good! Still using the last of our lettuce that Ivan pulled from the winter garden.

Had thought about trying to get away to Sta. Rosa for a few days but it's just too busy right now. Maybe at the end of next week. Tomorrow night is the first men and womens combined English conversation group. We'll see how many show up.

Have a wonderful week!

what a fun recipe -- can you leave out the almonds, or would that totally change the dish? I can never tell what recipes are worth making without nuts (I have allergies) and which are not ;-) Sometimes the nut just makes the dish, I'm told.

ps - please let me know if you try the apple honey pie!! I'd love to hear your thoughts.
