Mango Chicken Salad

Let’s face it, who doesn’t love Mango?  But I’m talking about the fruit not Chris Kattan‘s character on Saturday Night Live.  :)

I decided to try this for dinner one night when I didn’t really feel like cooking cause it seems easy enough.   This was super quick and would be great for a light dinner or lunches.  Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 lb. chicken breast
  • 1 tbs garlic
  • 1 tbs diced jalapeno
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 mango
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons light olive oil mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons plain low fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 2 tbs diced red onion
  • 1 cup black beans
  • splash of lime juice

PREPARATION

Saute garlic and jalapeno in oil over medium-high heat until soft, about 1 minute.  Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper and chili powder. Cook chicken in skillet until cooked through and brown on the outside, about 4 minutes per side.  After chicken has cooled, dice into small pieces.  Toss celery,  mango, red onion, black beans and cooled chicken in a large bowl.  Stir in mayonnaise, Greek yogurt and splash of lime juice.  Garnish with cilantro.
