Biggest Loser Indian Chicken Salad Pockets

Biggest Loser Chef Devin Alexander is a big fan of mixing low-fat mayonnaise with stronger flavors to give it the richness of a full-fat mayonnaise. Here, she’s coupled low-fat mayo with curry paste, which is found in the international aisle in most major grocery stores. Just be sure you don’t go crazy with these pastes in other dishes—most are insanely full of fat and sodium. But they also have very strong flavor, so in a dish like this where 1/2 teaspoon does it.
