MK’s Cilantro Lime Chicken Salad

IMG_8145.JPGAvocado and mango? Chipotle with cilantro? And chicken? Yes, please!

I love spicy and tangy. So I decided to incorporate those two flavors in a salad! The spiciness from chipotle combined with the tangy lime and ripe mango is simply amazing. I had a fun time experimenting all of these bold flavors together, creating a plate full of flavors making your taste buds happy.


  • red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • chipotle pepper, cut and smashed
  • avocado, sliced
  • romaine lettuce, chopped bite size
  • mango, sliced and chopped
  • cilantro, handful chopped
  • Italian seasoning
  • chicken breasts, cut into bite size cubes
  • purple onion, sliced and chopped
  • lime, wedges
  • salt & lemon pepper
  • chili powder
  • red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 bar of butter
  • mexican table cream


In a medium bowl: combine chicken breasts, cilantro, fresh lime juice, sprinkles of salt, lemon pepper, chili powder, and pepper flakes (I eyeball everything and go with whatever my taste of spiciness/saltiness is).

Set aside.

In a hot skillet: pour in some table cream and butter. Saute chicken breasts on medium high. When chicken is medium rare, put in chipotle and sprinkle Italian seasoning, stir around on low heat. Let simmer.


On a plate: combine cilantro and lettuce together with the remainder of fresh ingredients. When chicken is fully cooked, place on lettuce. Enjoy!
