BYE BYE boring old chicken salad HELLO Addictive Curry Chicken salad!!!! Be the envy of the potluck!! I get excited about most curry dishes but this curry chicken salad WHEW, it makes you wanna, well moan! It is addictive and perfect for dinner, lunch, an appetizer or mid-day or late night snack! When I made this addictive curry chicken salad for my Hubby, he said “Baby that was the BOMB”! I was inspired to make this addictive chicken salad after tasting something similar from a cafeteria buffet, then I had some with curry in it from a local caterer, so naturally I went home and got to experimenting! After 2 versions, the 3rd time was the charm and honey it was another BAM POW BOOM KABANG kinda moment! I mean really, the flavors in this dish hits you that hard! The sweet tangy from the apples and then the sweetness from the raisins and to top it off the juicy meat from the baked chicken, owe wee, sheer goodness!! We won’t even get into the Buttercrips Toasteds Crackers by Keebler that partner perfectly with the heavenly flavors – OMG! Hope you enjoy this addictive curry chicken salad as much as my family and I have.

Here are the heavenly crackers I served with my Curry Chicken Salad

Now where did you think I was going without giving you an up close and personal view?

ADDICTIVE CURRY CHICKEN SALAD

INGREDIENTS:

Shredded Meat (no skin) from 6-8 baked chicken breasts – (I use bone in and skin on because of the flavor)
1 ½ cups Mayo (I use Hellman’s)
4 diced granny smith green apples
1 cup raisins
2 cups sliced celery
4 tbsp. curry powder
1 tbsp. ground ginger
4 tbsp. granulated sugar
Sea salt (to taste)
Ground black pepper (to taste)
Granulated garlic (to taste)
Box of butter flavored crackers (I use Keebler’s Buttercrisp Toasteds)

READY, SET, GO:

LET’S MAKE THE SHREDDED CHICKEN BREAST MEAT FIRST:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees
  2. Wash your chicken breast
  3. Rub your chicken breast with extra virgin olive oil
  4. Generously season your chicken breast with sea salt, black ground pepper, dried rosemary, dried thyme, paprika and granulated garlic
  5. Spray a baking dish with Pam (or any non-stick spray) and place chicken breast in baking dish skin side up
  6. Bake chicken breast on 400 degrees uncovered for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until cooked through
  7. When chicken breast is done, remove from oven and spoon some of the juice it produced over the chicken and allow chicken to rest 15 ““ 20 minutes before shredding meat

NOW LET’S GET TO THE CURRY CHICKEN SALAD:

  1. Add all ingredients to a bowl and gently fold together
  2. ENJOY, ENJOY, ENJOY!!!

Tip 1: You can also use breast meat (no skin) from 1-2 pre-roasted Rotisserie Chicken(s)

Tip 2: Double ingredients to make more

Tip 3: Refrigerate when not serving and do not leave exposed in heat (if serving outdoors in the heat, cover and place in a container over ice bowl or covered in a cooler)

Tip 4: Make ahead of time, time spent in the refrigerator will allow the flavors to really get to know one another

    This recipe sounds so delicious that I can’t wait to try it. There’s nothing better that the combined flavors of salt, sugar and curry and this recipe fits that description perfectly. Utokia’s recipes are always delicious and presented so beautifully. I have some baked chicken in my fridge right now and I’m going to try this recipe with those buttery crackers tonight for my special guy.

Mental Health Issues Of the Black Community Remain Underreported

Did you know that July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month? This observance began in 2008 in honor of Bebe Moore Campbell, a noted author and mental health advocate. Campbell published books such as “Sometimes, My Mother Gets Angry” about a young girl who learns to deal with her mother’s bipolar disorder and “72 Hour Hold,” which is believed to have been inspired by Campbell’s own daughter, actress Maia Campbell, who suffered from mental illness.

An article by Joshunda Sanders of  NewsWireHouston.com highlights the low levels of mainstream media coverage on the mental health issues within the African-American community. Sanders draws attention to the recent reports of Rudy Eugene, the man who chewed off the face of a homeless man in Miami, and the death of Don Cornelius who’s legacy was highlighted more than the health issues leading to his suicide.

She also writes about the lack of identification of African-American celebrity’s issues such as the media’s reporting of Laker’s player, Metta World Peace, formally known as Ron Artest as they mocked his condition rather than trying to understand it. World Peace, himself, has spoken publicly of his search for professional help.

“That history plays out in mainstream media coverage, but it also affects public discussions about mental health because it has so often been used to justify exclusion, segregation and inequality,” states David J. Leonard, author of “After Artest: The NBA and the Assault on Blackness” and associate professor of Washington State University under the Department of Critical Culture, Gender, and Race Studies.

Do you feel that mental health still lies toward the bottom of media coverage within the Black community?
