Friday’s Recipe this week is an easy Indian chicken salad from Tasty Galaxy. The combination of chicken and chickpeas is tasty and healthy.
This chicken salad recipe has a define Indian twist because of the spices – cumin, coriander and turmeric. Cooked onions add another level of flavor to the salad, and the raw onion adds crunch.
