Curried Chicken Salad with Apples & Toasted Almonds

  • 1 medium onion, peeled and quartered 

  • 1 carrot, peeled and cut in 1-inch pieces 

  • 1 rib celery, cut in 1-inch pieces 

  • 8 peppercorns 

  • 1 cup water or low sodium chicken broth/stock 

  • 3 pounds chicken breast halves, bone in, skin on 

  • ¾ cup lowfat mayonnaise – or more to taste 

  • 2-3 tablespoons curry powder 

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt 

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 

  • 2 cups diced apples (1/2-inch dice) or 1 cup apples + 1 cup halved grapes 

  • 1 cup sliced celery 

  • 1 cup toasted slivered almonds 

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion or shallot


  1. Place onion, carrot, celery, and water or broth in Cooking Pot. Insert trivet/rack in Cooking Pot. Arrange chicken on rack. Cover and lock lid in place. Select High Pressure and set timer for 9 minutes. When audible beep sounds, use Natural Pressure Release for 10 minutes, then release any remaining pressure using Quick Pressure Release method. Transfer chicken to a bowl. Strain liquid and pour over chicken. Allow chicken to cool in cooking liquid. 

  2. To prepare chicken salad, remove chicken from cooking liquid. (If chilled the liquid will have congealed – it has wonderful flavor, save for other recipes using chicken stock, it may be frozen.) Remove and discard skin and bones. Cut or tear the chicken into ½-inch pieces and reserve Place mayonnaise, curry powder, salt, and pepper in a large bowl and stir with a whisk. Add the apples (and grapes if using), celery, toasted almonds, and onions/shallots. Stir well. Add cut/shredded chicken and stir to combine. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
