My chicken bites in a tortilla cup with avocado and mango are the perfect summer time appetizer. If you do not want to use tortilla cup you can serve endive or crackers. You can even combine with pasta and make a meal.

Notes

Note: This is a great way to use a store-bought roasted chicken if you don’t want to put your oven on during the summer!

  • 2 avocado, cubed
  • 1 mango, cubed
  • 1 jalapeño, seeds removed, diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 Teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 bag Tortilla cups
  • 1/4 Cup chopped cilantro

Set out the tortilla cups on a platter. Fill each cup with the chicken mixture then top with cilantro, serve immediately.

 

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Chicken Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
