Leftovers – New Favorite Lunch

Curried Chicken and Mango Salad

Leftovers from the night before are becoming my new favorite lunch.  I like that it only took 30 seconds to open the fridge, arrange lettuce, and place a scoop of chicken salad on top.  I might have eaten the mango chicken right out of the plastic container while standing at the fridge in the past.  That would have made a terrible picture though.  Add some green and it looks great.

Remove skin from rotisserie chicken, cut up chicken in 1 inch pieces, stir together 1/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt, 1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise or dressing, 2 Tbsp. chopped mango chutney, 1 Tbsp. lime or lemon juice, and 1 tsp. curry powder (I used masala).  Stir in chicken, 1 diced mango, 1 stalk of celery (ooops, I forgot to add that to mine) cut up, 1 apple diced, and 1/2 cup chopped cilantro or parsley.  Scoop up chicken and put on arranged Boston lettuce leaves.
