Post-partum Meal

I love being in community with other believers. We take care of one another. So many times people have brought me meals. I was able to return the favor recently and make a meal for a post-partum family in my church.

(Made with Jack cheese and brie.)

Curried Chicken Salad

1 orange
3 cups cubed cooked chicken (about 1 pound)
1-1/2 cups seedless red grapes, halved
1/2 cup chopped jicama
1 cup thinly sliced celery
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup lemon-flavor yogurt
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon red curry paste
small papayas, peeled, bias-sliced in half lengthwise, and seeded (optional)
Fresh chives (optional)

1. Peel and segment orange; halve or quarter each segment. In a large mixing bowl, combine orange, chicken, grapes, jicama, and celery.

2. For dressing, stir together mayonnaise, yogurt, soy sauce, and curry paste in a small bowl. Pour dressing over chicken mixture; toss lightly to coat. Cover and chill for 1 to 24 hours.
If desired, serve in papaya halves and garnish with fresh chives. Makes 6 servings.

I love your other blog and am so excited to visit you at this new one. I immediately added it to my favorites. I am so excited to start reading a blog from the beginning and not have to research the archives to "catch up" and get to know the author!

In Him,
