Options for Your Mango Chicken Salad
The chicken in this recipe is steamed, but you could poach it instead if you want to. If you prefer to poach the chicken, use water (not stock, broth or wine) since you will be marinating the cooked chicken afterwards anyway, giving it all the flavour it needs. A third option would be to use leftover chicken, which is already cooked. Finally, if you want a different texture, you can shred the cooked chicken instead of dicing it.
Chicken salad recipes like this chicken and mango salad are healthy and delicious, and the marinade contains garlic, ginger and lime, which results in an exotic eastern taste. In addition, the salad has cilantro, cucumber, bell pepper, and more to make it appealing, satisfying, and truly delicious.
