Curried Chicken Salad with Taro Chips

If your household is anything like mine, it is very rare that the entire family is ready to eat at the exact same time - especially on the weekends. So what is a foodie supposed to do?? My perfect go-to meal on weekends like these has always been chicken salad. You can dress it up with a nice side veggie and serve on some sourdough bread or eat a few bites right out of the bowl.

The below recipe is really just an approximation. I don't typically measure my ingredients and just go by the taste alone, but so many people have asked for this recipe that it's about time I write it down.

1/3 c. mayo
2 tsp curry (I think I used 3 this last batch)
2 tsp dijon mustard
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp cumin
pinch cayenne
1 c. diced cooked chicken
3 tbsp raisins
2 tbsp minced celery
1 tbsp minced shallot
salt & pepper
1 bag Taro chips

In a small bowl mix may, curry, mustard, lemon juice, cumin and cayenne. In a medium bowl combine chicken, raisins, celery, shallot and curry dressing. Toss well. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

I know this isn't the best picture, but I wanted you all to see what Taro chips were.
