Chicken Salad with Mango Chutney

Chilled chicken salad topped with flavorful mango chutney on a bed of greens.

Summer has officially gotten to me.

As seen on TV!

With the sun out, the pool cover off and my shaded patio beckoning…well let’s just say that the oven has been getting a well-deserved break.

Last Thursday I played hooky from work and went with friends to the last day of taping for Bethenny Frankel’s talk show. It was fun to see behind-the-scenes but I discovered that I am not an ideal audience member. All that sitting and clapping was driving me crazy — I think my husband’s ADD has rubbed off on me 🙂

The cooking segment was my favorite part. A guy from Top Chef came out and made ice cream using a tank of liquid nitrogen — instant ice cream! Wonder what a girl’s got to do to get a tank of liquid nitrogen in her kitchen?

This mango chutney covered chicken salad is perfect for a summer dinner — no oven required!
