Curried Chicken Salad

My wonderful mother in law taught me this curried chicken salad recipe. It's very easy, tasty, and great for a quick lunch. I prefer using a store bought rotisserie chicken because of the tender and juicy flavor it gives the salad, but you could also use chicken breasts or canned chicken. The measurements are just approximate...this is one recipe where you just eyeball things and flavor to personal taste.

Sue's Curried Chicken Salad

1 Rotisserie Chicken
Half an onion, chopped
Celery stalks, chopped
Curry powder (about 1 1/2 tablespoons)
Almonds - toasted in oven until golden brown(I forgot to put them in my ingredient picture)
Salad greens 

Take the meat off the chicken and dice it. Discard the skin (or keep a little on if you're feeling naughty). Combine the chicken, mayo, celery, onion, curry powder, and almonds. Salt and pepper to taste. Spoon on top of salad greens. Can also be served on bread of choice for a yummy sandwich.
