Serves: 1 for lunch (a few times)
Prep time: 10 min


  • 1pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and chopped into bite-size pieces
  • 2tablespoons finely diced shallots
  • 1/4cup diced celery, plus 1 tablespoon chopped leaves
  • 1/2cup halved red grapes
  • 1tablespoon lemon juice, or to taste
  • 2tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1tablespoon curry powder
  • 1pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1pinch sugar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • White sandwich bread or Little Gem lettuce cups, for serving


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the chicken, shallots, celery, celery leaves, grapes, lemon, mayo, curry powder, cayenne pepper, sugar, salt, and pepper until fully incorporated. Let sit in the fridge for a couple hours (or overnight!) before eating—tastes better that way, for some reason.
  2. Serve between sandwich bread or in lettuce cups.
