Chutney Chicken Salad


For salad:
1 small onion, diced
4 teaspoons lime juice
2 teaspoons curry
¼ teaspoon granulated garlic
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
6 cups mixed salad greens, torn
1 cucumber, chopped
1 carrot, cut into strips
1 red pepper, cut into thin strips
½ jicama, cut into thin strips

For dressing:
¼ cup rice vinegar
3 tablespoons chutney
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons sugar
½ teaspoon minced garlic
Dash pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil

Process onion, lime juice, curry and garlic until a paste is formed. Rub on each side of chicken breasts, cover and chill for ½ hour. Grill or broil chicken on a lightly greased rack for 12 to 15 minutes, turning halfway. Cool and cut into pieces. Toss together the greens, cucumber, carrot, pepper and jicama. Whisk together the rice vinegar, chutney, mustard, sugar, garlic and pepper (or use a hand blender). Whisk in olive oil to emulsify. Toss with salad and serve.

    • Jicama is in the radish family. It is a large white vegetable with a brown peel. It has a mild and very neutral flavor and is crunchy to eat. You can find it in the fresh vegetable area of the supermarket.
