"I developed this recipe many years ago after seeing a picture in a magazine. Its simple but unusual presentation of a saw toothed cantaloupe takes chicken salad up a notch." - by Sue Ready
  • 1 box chicken flavor Rice-A-Roni (if have to substitute use a similar product) 
  • 4 cantaloupes
  • 4 cups cut up cooked chicken (a roasted chicken from deli works well) 
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1-2 tsp. curry powder
  • cantaloupe pieces
  • Miracle Whip (do not substitute)
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries 

Cook the Rice-A-Roni according to box directions. Cut each cantaloupe in half-place one half cantaloupe face down on cutting board. With a sharp paring knife cut a saw tooth edge going all around the cantaloupe. Set aside leftover triangle cantaloupe pieces-repeat this procedure three more times on each cantaloupe piece. In a large bowl add left over cantaloupe triangle shaped pieces, 2 cups cooked Chicken Rice A-Roni mixture, cooked chicken, curry and dried cherries. Add only enough Miracle. Whip to moisten chicken mixture-refrigerate. Wrap the four saw toothed cantaloupe pieces in plastic wrap. Cover and refrigerate till chilled several hours. To serve: divide chicken mixture and fill each of the four cantaloupes. Sprinkle with almonds. Note: curry is a strong spice so start with 1 tsp. and then taste test till you get flavor strength you want
