Curried Chicken Salad with Apples (Whole30 Paleo) – Chicken, apple, almonds, and curry make up this tasty Paleo/Whole30 approved salad. The perfect nutritious and delicious weekday lunch! 

Flavorful, healthy, and satisfying.  Protein-rich, with crunchy apples and almonds and the spicy warmness of curry.  This Curried Chicken Salad with Apples is very high on the list of my go-to lunch choices and it is addictive!

I’ve talked plenty about my love of homemade chicken salad.  It’s a staple in my rotation and I almost always have it on hand for lunches.  On Meal Prep Sunday, I usually make a big batch of shredded chicken in the Instant Pot, which is perfect for tons of recipes, but especially for making different varieties of chicken salad.

If you’re on a round of Whole30 or just trying to eat clean, I recommend putting this curried chicken salad on your menu!  It’s full of flavor, protein, and healthy fats, and never leaves you craving something extra.  Between the creaminess of the homemade mayo and the crunch of the apples and almonds, it is super satisfying on its own or over some fresh greens or lettuce.
