Combine yogurt, cream, chutney, onions and curry powder in a medium-sized bowl. Stir until well mixed. Remove 2 tbsp (30 mL) curried yogurt dressing and set remainder aside.

Brush chicken with the 2 tbsp (30 mL) curried yogurt dressing and place on preheated grill. Cook with lid closed over medium heat for 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in centre, turning once halfway through.

Remove from heat and slice thinly. Combine chicken, salad greens, Canadian Farmers Marble cheese, tomatoes, cucumber and carrots in a large salad bowl. Pour remaining curried yogurt dressing over salad and toss well to coat. Add salt and pepper to taste.


Substitute grilled ham for chicken and spinach leaves for mixed greens or Romaine lettuce. Replace the mango chutney by apricot or peach jam. Add few drops of tabasco to the jam to spice it up.
