Curried Chicken Salad

 Last night we had many errands to run and every time we do, it seems we eat out. This gets way too expensive for my taste. Well, we passed the rotisserie chicken and I remembered seeing a recipe in Pinterest that I had saved that called for leftover chicken. I typically have most of the ingredients on hand, so all I needed was the chicken.

To make it, I simply cut up the chicken into bite-size cubes and then added ingredients that I already had in the house: yogurt, mayo, etc.

The curried chicken salad sandwiches were delicious, took very little time nor effort to make, and cost much less than if we’d eaten out. Additionally, it saved us on the cost of eating lunch out today, as we had brought the leftovers in. I quite liked the taste after the flavors melded overnight.
