Bites of tender chicken, coated in warming vadouvan curry powder, find sweet contrast from the crisp pear and plump golden raisins in our kale salad. It’s all brought together with a drizzle of our tangy yogurt dressing and a garnish of crunchy almonds.

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Turn off the heat.
