Sweet Chicken Salad – Video Post

3 WWPP Posted by 7 years ago 14 Comments

I had fruit, I had chicken, Hmmmmmm… this is what I came up with and honestly, I could not be happier! I loved loved loved it!

Bear with us in the video, it is a bit long as I took a few detours with the toddler. He’s seems to be able to help more and more but still gets easily distracted. Ahhhh the joys of toddlerhood!

I’ve changed the amounts slightly now that I made it once. It could have used a bit more chicken and that helps even the servings to 4.

  • 8 oz cooked chicken breast (I used short cuts)
  • 1 cup cubed honeydew melon (170g)
  • 1 cup cubed mango (165g)
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes halved (150g)
  • ¼ cup plain non-fat yogurt (57g)
  • juice of one lime
  • 1 tsp dried cilantro

Mix all ingredients together and serve. Goes great on a whole wheat pita!

    Hey Roni! Just had to say - love the video, and the toddler makes me laugh every time. It was too cute when he said "don't cut yourself mommy", and I don't know if you noticed, but in the beginning he just randomly sticks his finger in the bowl of honeydew and lets is hang out for a while. (Then sneaks a spoonful when you aren't looking) - kids just crack me up :) Reply

    Hey Roni, I was wondering if you've tried Champagne Mangoes? I have one and I'm waiting for it to ripen. I've heard it's a lot milder/less sweet. Anyway, I love this idea of fruit (besides grapes) in a chicken salad. Thanks so much for sharing! Reply

    Roni - not only does this look amazing, I wanted to thank you for this site. I stumbled across a reference on the WW message boards, and now I am hooked. Thank you for the wonderful recipes, and for giving us a peek into your life. Your son is adorable, and I love watching you cook and spend time together. Reply

    I'm sure Roni owns shirts that aren't green, but she must stick with green for "GREEN"lite bites. I love how the attire is tied to the site. The food is awesome, the toddler is so cute. I love this site! Reply

    Another great recipe idea, Roni - and a very entertaining video! How on earth do you come up with the recipes?!! It's obviously one of your many talents. BTW - since I believe green is my "comfort color", I am thrilled that you always wear green, and as Lori pointed out, it goes along with your site. My daughter gets so annoyed with me when we go shopping because I always gravitate toward "green" clothing. She says I have way too much green in my wardrobe. :-) ~Sandy Reply

    I would try a celery chop up small for some crunch, maybe some toasted walnuts. Reply

    Thanks for the recipe Roni, YYYYYUUUUMM!!! I wanted to share this I always have any kind of chicken with this drink called purple. You must have heard about it since it's doing a lot of rounds in the celebrity circuit and is all over the news. Its tastes amazing with chicken, try it and let me know if you liked it or not. It is a health drink which is made up of 7 fruits juice and is high on antioxidants and you know about antioxidants right? it prevents premature ageing, what else do growing women want huh, LOL!! If you want more information to check whether what I am saying is right you can get it at . You can get it at GNC and drug stores. Reply

    I made this - changed up the fruit a bit - and it was AMAZING! I am sharing it with all my friends! YUM! good call. Reply

    Wow Roni this was great. I made a few changes and it still turned out perfect. I "forgot" the tomatoes (husband doesn't eat them, I love them) and my mango was just not as ripe as yours (how did you just slice yours in half? That was amazing). And I added strawberries and blueberries. I was a little leery of the plain non-fat yogurt, but I love it all together! I cooked my chicken in lime juice and coriander. It all came together really well and I over made it so I'll be eating it for lunch for a few days and sharing with neighbors! Thanks for the wonderful summer dinner idea! Reply
