This chicken salad gets its kick from weeknight-friendly boneless, skinless chicken breasts that are coated with mustard, curry powder, and chutney. After they're broiled, they're served on a bed of romaine and radicchio, topped with fresh mango, and drizzled with a lime-spiked yogurt dressing. This stunning showstopper of a salad is absolutely brimming with flavor and—bonus!—comes together in just 30 minutes. Serve on its own for a hearty main or as a side salad/appetizer to complete the perfect summertime dinner.

Instructions

  4. Arrange lettuce and radicchio in large shallow bowl. Add 1/2 cup dressing and toss to coat. Top with mango, drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice, and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon lime zest. Top with chicken. Serve with remaining dressing.
  5. Per serving: 3 ounces chicken, about 2 cups salad, and 1/4 cup dressing

Notes

Coarse-grained mustard is just that; mustard made with whole mustard seeds instead of ground mustard seeds. The whole seeds give the mustard a crunchy texture and intense flavor. If you have trouble finding it, try stone-ground mustards, or in a pinch, regular Dijon mustard.
