Paleo Mango Coconut Curried Chicken Salad Recipe

I’ve always loved curried chicken salads. There’s something about the flavor of curry powder that just goes so well with chicken. But it also needs a touch of sweetness, which the mangoes and blueberries in this recipe provides.

And for the crunch, I added in some pumpkin seeds and shredded coconut. The slight crunch that the pumpkin seeds add is really necessary!

The creaminess to this chicken salad recipe is simply from coconut cream. It goes so well with the curry flavor!

How do you eat this curried chicken salad? Personally, I found it went really well with some butternut squash that I roasted in the oven (butternut squash and curry powder go well together!). But you can also just eat this with a green salad or by itself.

For another version of a more traditional curried chicken salad recipe, check out this recipe made with Paleo mayo, cashews, raisins, and celery.
