Chicken salad sandwiches are one of those easy and simple recipes that can be made in a pinch.

I remember when my parents made chicken salad as a kid. I absolutely hated it. A mushy sandwich that tasted like mayo? Hard pass…

I never really understood why they made it often. Walking downstairs and seeing my sister and mom pulling chicken with their hands, I knew what would be in the fridge for the next few days. (Tip: Use two forks instead)

In retrospect, I’ve realized they made it so often because of how easy it is.

Today, my childhood disgust for mayo has passed, and I’ll gladly eat chicken salad, macaroni salad, or whatever that magical eggy oily mixture is spread on.

But what makes mayo better? More flavor!

I’ve tried plenty of different mayo’s like chipotle mayo, wasabi mayo, spicy mayo, and much more. But when I tried a curry chicken salad sandwich at the local sandwich shop in Portland (Chop), I knew I had to make this on my own.

After trying different recipes online, I’ve created my own recipe. In my opinion, the perfect balance of spicy and sweet, with a kick of curry flavor.

This recipe, just like any other chicken salad recipe, is great in a sandwich, wrap, or even on crackers.

So what are you waiting for? Go get your mayo and make it into something ma(yo)-gical.
