Heat advisory today! Heat index is 103 and dew point is 70. Too hot to cook at all. Without turning on the stove, our air conditioner is over working and not keeping up with it. The temperature keeps climbing in our house. I get sick from heat, so I'm not liking this at all! So I bought a rotisserie chicken today and a coleslaw mix and decided to see what I could come up with. This recipe just evolved as I was putting it together. Once I got my ingredients together I thought curry would taste so good with it all. I love the flavor of curry, but never have I heard of or tried a curry dressing before, but why not? So I started with my usual coleslaw dressing and added curry powder and a bit more sweetener to it, and it turned out to be quite a taste sensation with all the blends of flavor together. I hope you'll enjoy it if you try it. It's a main meal dish all by itself, and very substantial.
CHICKEN CURRY COLESLAW
1 pound Marketside coleslaw mix, (any coleslaw mix, but this is the brand I get)
3 pounds chicken, cooked and chopped (I used rotisserie chicken, already cooked)
15 ounces no sugar added peaches, packed in water (1 can, drained and chopped)
1 cup walnuts, chopped roughly
4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled (more if you like more bacon)
2 tablespoons sunflower seeds, salted
1 cup light mayonnaise (Hellman's), OR regular mayonnaise (Hellman's is gluten free and only 1 g carb)
6 drops liquid sucralose, OR sweetener equal to 3 tbsp. sugar
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon curry powder
In large salad bowl, combine coleslaw mix, chicken, peaches, walnuts, bacon, and sunflower seeds. Toss together.
In small bowl mix together mayonnaise, sweetener, apple cider vinegar, and curry powder.
Pour dressing over coleslaw mix and toss together well, until dressing is evenly mixed in.
