Lime Chicken and Mango Wrap

Mangoes are my favorite fruit.

One, they taste AMAZING. Two, they are a gorgeous color, my favorite color: school bus yellow! Three, they taste AMAZING! (wait, didn't I already...?)




So the photos came out awful, but I can't get over how good this wrap was, so simple, so TASTY! So I had to share. I know, I'm such a giving person. And humble. Oh so humble.

So most people I know are SO frustrated when cutting and/or eating a mango. But this is what my mom would cut a mango for me when I was younger. Because it reminded me of a hedgehog. And those things are hella cute ;)




Now all you have to do is scoop this out with a spoon:




Voila! Along with some chopped red pepper, what a colorful lot!

Now I wanted a wrap that would scream at me. Scream: SUMMER! Eat me! And eat it I did.

And it was good.




What you'll need:

-1/4 cup cooked chicken, diced
-juice of 1/2 a lime
-1 teaspoon white sugar
-1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1/2 teaspoon red wine vinegar
-1/2 mango, cut into cubes
-1/4 cup red pepper, cut into cubes
-1 wrap


Directions:

    1.   In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, white sugar, oregano, salt, and vinegar.
    2.   In a lightly sprayed skillet, fry the chicken on medium heat. Pour the lime mixture on top
    3.  Place chicken, mango and red pepper on the wrap, and assemble. Enjoy!
