I'm always looking for new ways to prepare chicken. So when I saw the recipe for Moroccan chicken salad in the True Food cookbook I knew I had to try it. It's the perfect recipe for using up leftover chicken and I love the idea of serving it on lettuce leaves instead of bread.

1/2 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup diced jicama
12 butter lettuce leaves
In a large bowl, combine yogurt, mayonnaise, honey, mustard, lime juice, curry powder, salt, lime zest and parsley. Whisk well to combine. Add the chicken, celery, cashews, raisins and jicama. Mix thoroughly.
Serve over the butter lettuce leaves.
