Prize Winning (yes really!) Warm Lime, Chicken & Mango Salad


How amazing are the mangoes at the moment?  They are in abundance (I love that word, don’t you?) GT adores them (especially frozen eaten like ice cream) and the girls like them too.  Life Love & Hiccups, a blog I love, it’s like chatting with a friend, recently had a competition for mango recipes and guess what????? This here salad was one of the winners, YAY!  I think that is the first time I have won anything, ever!

So what’s so good about this PRIZE WINNING salad?  Well it’s got mangoes mixed with lime juice and chicken and other yummy bits that makes for an easy, delicious summery meal, made from start to finish in about 12 minutes.

What was the prize you ask?  A $50 Coles Supermarket voucher which will be great to put towards all the Christmas food shopping I need to start doing soon!  A big thank you to Sonia (check out Life Love and Hiccups) and to Coles too.

And if you want to make the salad, here is the recipe, too easy!

Warm Lime, Chicken & Mango Salad

6 minutes

6 minutes

12 minutes

2 adult meals


  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 400 g chicken tenderloins
  • 1 mango sliced (if they are out of season where you are you can use tinned mangoes)
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • handful of pistachios (or pepitas (great antioxidants) if nuts aren't your thing)
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • Lots of baby spinach


  1. Put oil in a large fry pan, heat and add the chicken and cook for 2 - 3 minutes turning over.
  2. Add the mango slices and mix around through the chicken (it will coat it). The mango will start to soften and become golden.
  3. Once the chicken has browned add the lime juice and then turn off the heat.
  4. Stir through the baby spinach so that it's wilted and add the pistachios and mix through
  5. Plate up on to serving plates and top with the avocado
  6. This makes a decent sized meal for 2 so just add more if you need to.

PS: I just told GT that this was the first prize I have ever won and he said “No! You won me and that is the biggest prize of all.” Sorry if that has put you off your meal, I have asked him to leave the room, preferably the house for quite some time!

Do you love mangoes?  Have you ever won a prize?  What was it?
