Chicken salad's creamy coolness and crisp celery crunch make it a classic American lunch staple. We have a recipe that offers a creative adaptation of a traditional chicken salad sandwich with its use of curry and a medley of other flavors. Featuring an array of unexpected ingredients -- including green apples, coconut, honey and lime -- this meal is sure to delight your taste buds. There are a number of easy ways you can modify it to meet your needs when it comes to diet or prep time. Using light mayonnaise or bagels or other breads instead of croissants are lower-calorie alternatives that don't affect the overall taste much. Consider doubling the amount of curry used if you prefer extra bite. To save time chopping, use boneless chicken rather than pieces on the bone.
