Mango Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps with Mango Sauce

  • 1store bought, pre-cooked rotisserie chicken from supermarket (preferably lemon pepper)
  • 2ripe, soft mangos (peeled, diced, cubed)
  • 1/2large red onion (peeled, diced, cubed)
  • 2sticks of celery (washed, white’s removed, diced, cubed)
  • 4tablespoons chopped celery leaves
  • 2green onions (washed, whites removed, diced, chopped)
  • 2tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 4tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1tablespoon sugar
  • 1teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2cup Greek yogurt
  • 2tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/4cup toasted slivered almonds
  • 1/4cup mango sauce (recipe follows)
  • 1head of lettuce (washed)

The hardest part about this is the pulling of the chicken meat. Pull all chicken meat from store-bought chicken and place in a large bowl. Just go at it with your hands. Make sure not to add any bones or skin. Wash your hands when done. You could also just cook your favorite chicken recipe and add that chicken if you like.

In bowl with chicken, add diced and cubed mangos, onion, celery and its leaves, green onion and chopped basil. Mix until combined.

Add vinegar and lemon juice. Combine again.

Season with sugar, salt, pepper. Stir contents one more time.

Finish with mustard, Greek yogurt and mayo. Mix in toasted almonds. Mix until well combined.

Refrigerate while you do the mango sauce. Serve over some lettuce leaves.

Mango sauce

  • 1ripe, soft mango (peeled, diced, cubed)
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 2tablespoons sugar
  • 2tablespoons water
  • In a small pot over low heat, heat up mango and begin to mash with a fork.
  • When pureed, add sugar and water and mix until sauce-like consistency.
  • Strain contents through a sieve and discard pulpy remains.
  • Add 1/4 cup to chicken salad and later serve with a little over the salad when inside the lettuce wrap.

Author Notes: There’s almost nothing better than a soft, tender mango, or three. Mangos bring a certain sweetness to any dish that makes you want more and more after (…more)—Munch This!
