  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts poached for 3 to 8 minutes
  • ¼ cup whole milk Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon yellow curry powder
  • 3 green onions sliced
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • ½ cup raisins
  • 1 cup grated carrot
  1. Heat a large pot of water and bring it to a full boil. Add the raw chicken breasts and reduce heat slightly. Cook for 5 to 8 minutes (depending on thickness of chicken), or until chicken is cooked through. Place chicken on a cutting board, chop into cubes, and allow it to cool.
  2. Whisk together the yogurt, mayo, lemon juice, mustard, maple syrup, and curry powder until well-combined.
  3. Add the green onion, cashews, raisins, and grated carrot to a large mixing bowl, along with the cooled chopped chicken. Pour the curry dressing over everything and mix well until everything is coated.
  4. Eat in abundance!
