CURRIED CHICKEN WRAP // MOM MONDAY

CHICKEN SALAD LETTUCE WRAPS // The Kitchy Kitchen

Many of my girlfriends and family are fun, awesome, and fabulous young moms, and though I’m still a few years away from little ones of my own, the idea of “mom friendly” dishes has popped up more than once.  I was a pretty open minded eater as a little kid, but my brother on the other hand…ketchup and brown stuff only.  Getting a vegetable across his plate was practically impossible. I’m surprised he survived toddlerhood without a bout of scurvy.  So to help out these lovely friends of mine, I’m dedicating mondays to mom-friendly dinners that are easy to make, delicious for everybody, and all with some secret veggies folded in.

Curried chicken salad is a favorite of mine. It’s so flavorful, light, and easy to whip together.  To make mine extra light, I switched out mayo for Greek yogurt, and added tons of fresh herbs. It’s the perfect lunch!
