Chicken Mango Pasta Salad


The last time we had the young family group over, it was nice enough to have supper in the backyard.  I wanted to make a one-bowl supper so that it would be easy to transport outside and in case we did not all fit around the dinner  table.


I decided upon a chicken/mango/pasta salad and started with some tricoloured peppers and added tri-colour rotini, red onion, corn, black olive slices, mango pieces and a half a bunch of chopped cilantro.  D grilled the boneless chicken breasts in a rub of brown sugar, salt, red pepper, onion, garlic, molasses and powdered mango aka as Clubhouse Chipolte Mango seasoning.


The basic dressing was: 1/4 cup fresh lime juice,1/4 cup olive oil, 2 tbsp honey  and one garlic clove, peeled and minced but I had to increase the volume to accommodate the gang.
