Betty Crocker's Diabetes Cookbook shares a recipe! Good-bye boring chicken. Welcome the tropics with a low-fat chicken salad.
lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch strips
tablespoons blackened seasoning blend
tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
bag (5 oz) mixed baby salad greens (4 cups)
medium mango, peeled, pitted and diced (1 cup)
medium red onion, sliced (3/4 cup)
small red bell pepper, chopped (1/2 cup)
cup raspberry vinaigrette
Place chicken in heavy-duty resealable food-storage plastic bag. Sprinkle seasoning blend over chicken; seal bag and shake until chicken is evenly coated.
In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 7 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until no longer pink in center. Remove chicken from skillet; drain on paper towels.
In large bowl, toss salad greens, mango, onion and bell pepper; divide among 4 plates. Top with chicken. Drizzle with vinaigrette.
Loaded with mango and bell pepper, this salad is a tasty source of vitamins A and C. Vitamin A is vital for proper eyesight and healthy hair and skin; vitamin C helps promote healthy gums, blood vessels, bones and teeth.
Add a crusty roll and a glass of milk for a total of 3 Carbohydrate Choices. If your meal plan allows, select a small cookie for dessert.
Cook and drain the chicken, and chop the mango and veggies up to one day before serving. Then cover and refrigerate until you're ready to assemble the salad.
