  • 300 g leftover cooked chicken skin removed & chopped
  • 100 g red & green seedless grapes halved
  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 140 ml double or whipping cream whipped
  • 2 tsp curry paste or curry powder to taste
  • 1 tbsp apricot jam or mango chutney
  • freshly ground salt & pepper


  • In a large bowl mix together the mayonnaise, whipped cream, curry paste or curry powder and apricot jam or mango chutney.
  • Fold in the chicken and grapes and season to taste.
  • Chill.
  • Serve with cold rice and salad or use as a sandwich filling if making a smaller quantity.


If using as a sandwich filling with your leftover roast chicken then you can just leave out the whipped cream. I just mix the ingredients by eye and taste.
