Mango Chicken Salad


This mango chicken salad recipe is healthy, fresh, and bright. It’s super tasty and super easy. You can taste the flavors of the tropics!


  • 1/2 lb. chicken breast
  • 1 tbs. each minced garlic and jalapeno and olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 mango
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons light olive oil mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • juice and zest of 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • optional add-ins: 2 tbs. minced red onion, 1 chopped roasted red pepper, 1 cup black beans, 1 teaspoon sugar


  1. 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 or shred into small pieces.
  2. Toss chopped celery, peeled and chopped mango, and cooled chicken in a large bowl. Stir in mayonnaise and yogurt. Add lime juice and zest. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Stir in any additional add-ins (see suggestions above – I used all of them)! Store for up to a few days in the refrigerator. Add the fresh cilantro just before serving.
