    Warm Mango and sweet chilli Chicken Salad

    Chicken tenderlions.
    Fresh mango and canned mango in natural juice.
    Sweet chilli sauce to taste.

    Whatever salad you like I use lettuce, tomato, carrot, onion, cucumber, mushrooms and capsicum. pine nuts also optional.

    Brown the chicken and onion, then add the tin of mango, diced fresh mango (optional) and sweet chilli sauce and reduce down slightly turn off when you think the chicken is cooked, allow to cool.

    Make up the salad and toss while the chicken is cooking.

    Pile onto a large plate, top with the cooled chicken mix and top with pine nuts..

    This looks great served on a big plate and placed in the middle of the table, my friends often comment on how they feel like they are eating out at a nice resturant.
    Takes about 15 minutes to whip up and is delicious.
