Curried Chicken salad

It is a gorgeous winters day in Cape Town today, it almost feels like spring is here.
I’ve been craving salads for a while {yes, I do crave salads} so with this lovely weather I took the chance to make my chicken salad with apple’s and walnuts.
A great summer salad and perfect lunch time meal with homemade bread.

4 Chicken breasts
2 Granny Smith apples

Rub the chicken breasts with the Mild curry powder.  Add the tumeric, left over curry and salt to about 750ml boiling water  in a sauce pan and bring to boil, and add the chicken {chicken should be covered with the water}.  Allow to simmer until chicken breasts are cooked.
Remove from the water and allow to drain while roasting the walnuts in a dry pan {if your walnuts are not yet roasted, if they are don’t roast again}
Half the apples and slice each half in thin slices {Removing the pips and the hard part in the middle}
Pull the Chicken apart with a fork.

Serve immediately, with a honey and mustard dressing
