1 tablespoon curry powder

1 teaspoon cayenne powder

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

½ cup golden raisins

Salt and pepper to taste

1 red onion, sliced

  1. In a large bowl, combine chicken, mayo, curry, cayenne, paprika, and raisins. Mix well and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Lay half of the collard leaves out overlapping and add half chicken salad; sprinkle with red onion. Roll like a burrito. Repeat with remaining collards and chicken.
