Tropical Sandwich

My sister sent this sandwich recipe of Grilled Chicken with Mango, Bell Pepper, and Avocado from Whole Living Magazine from Martha Stewart.  She absolutely loves it and I have to say I agree.  It's very good and fresh.  This was our dinner tonight along with a side of Veggie Stix.  I was pretty impressed to have such a fresh, healthy meal for my family and they ate it all!

I made some changes to it to work with the ingredients that I had on hand.  First, since I no longer have a grill (boo-hoo) I poached chicken breasts to use and have on hand for the rest of the week.  I use this recipe a lot and have many compliments on the chicken.  I use it in salads and sandwiches.

 Also, I sliced a white onion really, super thin - almost shaved - because I didn't have red onion.  It was much more bearable and good this way.  Then I used boston lettuce leaves. 

My sister told me that she started a mango plant from the bean inside it.  I've never ventured into the hard core of the mango, so I thought I'd check it out myself.  My mango was really ripe and I think this bean is ready to sprout soon, so I'm also giving it a go at growing one too!  We'll see whose starts first and lasts the longest.  Although she's in CA so she may have an advantage!

  1. Cool! Glad you liked it. James and I were really impressed with all the flavors. My mango pit has sprouted and the sprout is almost double in size what it was yesterday. I guess it's time to plant it.
