Mango and Chicken San Choy Bau


A refreshingly different take on a Chinese classic dish


  • 2 ripe juicy mangoes, diced
  • 1 cos (or baby cos) lettuce, washed and separated
  • 2 poached chicken breasts, shredded
  • 1 red capsicum, sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped coriander

  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce

    1. Arrange the lettuce in a pile on a serving platter. Combine the chicken, mango, capsicum and coriander and set aside.
    2. Combine the dressing ingredients and mix through the chicken and mango salad.
    3. To serve, fill a lettuce leaf with some of the chicken and mango salad then roll up and eat!


    Serving suggestion:
    Add 1 large handful of bean sprouts and 1 cup chopped roasted peanuts to the salad.
    NOTE: baby cos can be used for smaller serving portions and kids.
    Recipe adapted from Mangoes Australia.
