Total time: 40 minutes

Here’s what you need:

1 head butter lettuce
1 pound boneless chicken breasts
2 small, or 1 large ripe mango, diced
1-2 stalks green onions, about ½ cup when chopped
3 tablespoons mayo
2 tablespoons Dijon or grain mustard
1 ½ tablespoons honey
½ teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste

Let’s do it

  • In a medium stock pot 2/3 full of salted water, boil the chicken breasts for 18 – 20 minutes or until they have an internal temp of at least 165 degrees F.
  • While the chicken is boiling, prepare the honey mustard dressing by whisking the mayo, mustard, honey, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl. (Use a large bowl so you can easily just toss the chicken into it later).
  • Transfer dressing to fridge to chill until ready to add chicken.
  • Using two forks, pull the cooked chicken into long, string like pieces then toss chicken into the large bowl with the dressing coating evenly.
  •  Refrigerate the dressed chicken for 5- 15 minutes to chill quickly before serving.
  • Fill individual pieces of lettuce as “cups” with the chicken, then sprinkle with diced mango and scallions to finish.
