Spicy curried chicken salad
A fantastic way to use up leftover rotisserie or roast chicken. This recipe features a local Ghost Pepper hot sauce called Tun Up.
Today we are going to make a spicy curried chicken salad that features a fiery and delicious Caribbean style hot sauce called Tun Up Ghost Pepper Mango Flavour Hot Sauce.
Making chicken salad is one of the best ways to use leftover rotisserie or roast chicken. You can use homemade leftover chicken or store bought. Here I used meat and skin from a garlic and herb rotisserie chicken that we had had for dinner the night before.
Using your hands remove the meat and skin from any bones and rip it up into chunks in a bowl.
To this start adding mayonnaise and curry powder. For this amount of chicken I used around 4 or 5 heaping tablespoons of mayo and 2 tablespoons of curry powder. You can adjust to your own liking.
Then I stirred in about a teaspoon of cumin, a tablespoon of garlic powder and a teaspoon of mustard powder.
Finally I added the kick in the form of a tablespoon of Tun Up Mango Flavour Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce.
This hot sauce is fantastic. Super hot and really flavourful. It is now one of my favourite hot sauces. Tun Up is made independently in the GTA and sold at a few local stores. They have a list on their website. You can also order their sauces directly. I got mine at a terrific local Caribbean / Central American grocery store in South Etobicoke called 6IX Shoppe.
Tun Up makes three hot sauces and they are all spot on but the Ghost Pepper sauce is really intense and spectacular. I highly recommend it.
I put in about a tablespoon of the sauce which made it very spicy. You can use as much or as little as you want but trust me, you want the heat. You can, of course, use any Caribbean style hot sauce that you enjoy if you can't get Tun Up.
Add some sea salt to taste. Then taste and adjust any of seasonings, sauce or mayo to your liking.
This is perfect on toasted rye.
