Good for lunch or dinner, this warm-weather pasta salad is a complete meal when served over a bed of lettuce with a side of fresh sliced garden tomatoes and warm garlic breadsticks. I usually add more curry powder than the recipe calls for.

Directions

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook chicken breasts in the boiling water until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 12 to 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Rinse chicken in cold water to cool, cut into small chunks, and refrigerate to cool completely.

I followed the recipe pretty close (more curry! and other stuff adjusted by what was on hand) and this is delicious. Read More

Original poster here. casadam suggested that the dish "needed more flavor." The recipe calls for only "1 teaspoon curry powder or more to taste"; I always add more -- closer to a tablespoon (or more sometimes!). Add curry powder and keep tasting until it's enough flavor for you. Plus there's no salt included in the recipe but I usually salt once it's on the plate. Read More
