  • 1/2 pound chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, cooked, diced or shredded (about 4 cups)
  • 1 stalk celery, minced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, very finely minced
  • 1 mango, diced and/or pulped (or 1 heaping cup mango, frozen, diced)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons lime juice, fresh
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons mayonnaise, reduced fat (plus a little extra for the bread, if desired)
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • Black pepper, freshly ground, to taste
  • A dash or two of cayenne
  • 1 cup California walnuts, lightly toasted, minced


  • A handful of cilantro, fresh, minced (okay to include smaller stems)
  • Salad greens for the bread, if desired


  1. Combine everything in a medium-sized bowl and mix until thoroughly combined.
  2. Divide among 4 slices of fresh or toasted artisan bread (sourdough walnut would be great!) that have been spread lightly with extra mayonnaise, if desired, and possibly lined with a leaf or two of lovely fresh salad greens.
  3. Serve open-face, or top with a second slice of bread.
