Lime Cumin Chicken Salad with Mango Salsa

This is a fantastic summer salad using a simple marinade for your grilled chicken. It also takes advantage of the mango salsa recipe previously featured on the blog.

I’ve included it here again as well. I love avocado with this salad but it’s your choice to include it.

Cumin is Spouse’s favourite spice and includes it in her soup recipes sometimes. The combination with lime here works incredibly well.

NOTE: I like to debone my own chicken breasts so that I can roast the bones and skins for stock later. I freeze them until I have enough to cover a baking sheet then use the instructions in my post on making Chicken Stock here.
