A vibrant and tasty chicken salad. Chicken, avocado, mangoes and lettuce are tossed with a delicious chilli-lime dressing. Serve as a side dish, main course for lunch or dinner.
I've made this several times now... first exactly as called for in the recipe, then with personal tweaks. Now it's one of our staple meals! I always cook the chicken first with seasonings, garlic, sweet onion, and sometimes a red pepper. Also we prefer spinach over lettuce, to which I add a handful of chopped, fresh cilantro and sometimes green onions. The dressing is stellar. Once I made the chicken extra spicy, and added 2 Tablespoons of plain yogurt and 1 Tablespoon of mango chutney to the dressing to balance the flavors, which was also really, really good. - 15 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Mango and avacado is a wonderful combo and the dressing is beautiful. I think I'd even make it again to use as a dressing for any type of salad or as a sauce for chicken. I did use spinach instead of lettuce and found that to be very tasty. - 30 Jun 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Great flavor, nice colors, this dish was unusual, and everyone seemed to like it. Filling yet light, and used as a main dish. The lime juice gave it a nice tartness, but was balanced with the brown sugar. I used chicken tenderloins cooked & lightly seasoned just before making the salad, and added 1/2 c of shredded carrots just because I wanted extra veggies in it. Really good, I'd make it again. - 03 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
