The Spice Hunter Review & Giveaway

           The Spice Hunter is a California based company producing all natural herbs, spices, turkey brine, grilling spices, extracts, and a gourmet food line featuring all natural soups and beverage mixes!  I have been using The Spice Hunter products for several years. The quality and depth of flavor from the herbs, spices, and extracts are the best I have ever found!  I have a special recipe for chicken salad featuring several spices from The Spice Hunter. This recipe is so good, I was selected to compete in a cooking competition because of it! 



The first step is to boil boneless skinless chicken breast for approximately 20 minutes. I add two small scoops of The Spice Hunter Organic Salt Free Poultry Seasoning to the water as it is boiling. Drain the water and allow the chicken to cool.







 After the chicken has cooled, I pull it a part by hand. Then to the chicken, I add small pieces of a diced granny smith apple, dried cranberries, and almond slivers.  You can add as much or as little as you would like!



 For the binding agent of the salad, I use organic plain yogurt. It's the consistency of mayonnaise but a whole lot healthier for you!  The main rock star of this dish is The Spice Hunter Organic Salt Free Curry Seasoning! The smoky burst of flavor is heaven in your mouth!  So, to the plain yogurt I add ~ The Spice Hunter Organic Curry Seasoning, Organic Minced Onion, Organic Granulated Garlic,Organic Paprika, and Organic Black Pepper!





 Mix the chicken with the yogurt spice mixture for an amazing chicken salad!  The smokiness of the curry and paprika balances out the sweetness of the dried cranberries, along with the tartness of the granny smith apples!  The almond slivers are a good source of protein while also providing a crunchiness to the texture of the chicken salad!  I like to serve the chicken salad on a croissant, on lettuce leaves , or simply eat it right out of the bowl. The distinct combination of the spices will have you wanting just one more bite!
