Mango Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Nothing evokes the taste of the Tropics better than a juicy bite into a fresh ripe mango, right?  It's mango season, so now is the time to create ANY recipe featuring this beautiful fruit.   This is perfect for those hot Summer days and super easy to put together.  I mounded the filling into romaine lettuce "wraps", but they would be good in a sandwich or appetizers in puff pastry cups or Belgium endive leaves.

You can buy precooked chicken these days, however, I usually bake or boil some breast meat  to have on hand for last minute meals or salads.

Mango Chicken Lettuce Wraps

2 cups cooked and cubed breast meat.

2 green onions (scallions), chopped

2 Tbsp mayonnaise (or a combination of mayo/plain yogurt)

1 mango, peeled and cut up

1 heaping Tbsp of fresh chopped cilantro

salt & pepper to taste

Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl.  Refrigerate for at least an hour.  Then, fill the lettuce wraps and garnish with avocado.  Yum!
