These paleo and gluten-free lettuce cups are bold and refreshing, thanks to our house-made chipotle mayo and a fast mango-avocado salsa.

Ingredients

  • 10 ounces boneless skinless chicken thigh pieces
  • Sun Basket chipotle mayo (paleo mayo - sweet smoked paprika - chipotle powder)
  • 1 lime
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 mango
  • ½ cup grape tomatoes
  • 1 avocado
  • 3 or 4 sprigs fresh cilantro
  • 1 head baby iceberg lettuce

Chef's Tip

To give the chicken even more chipotle flavor, instead of serving the remaining mayo on the side, toss it with the chicken in a clean bowl right after the chicken comes out of the pan.

Instructions

1

Prep and cook the chicken

  • Cut a small corner from the chicken packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
  • In a medium bowl, season the chicken generously with salt and pepper and toss with 2 tablespoons chipotle mayo. Set aside the remaining mayo for serving.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
While the chicken cooks, start the mango-avocado salsa.

Make the mango-avocado salsa

  • Juice the lime.
  • Peel and finely chop enough red onion to measure ½ cup.
  • Trim off the top and bottom of the mango; cut away the peel, then cut the flesh into two halves away from the pit. Cut the halves lengthwise into ½-inch strips, then crosswise into ½-inch pieces.
  • Cut the grape tomatoes in half.
  • Cut the avocado in half. Remove the pit, scoop out the flesh, and cut the flesh into ½-inch pieces.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
In a medium bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon lime juice and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Add the onion, mango, tomatoes, avocado, and cilantro and stir gently to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Prep the lettuce

  • Trim the root end from the iceberg lettuce; separate the leaves.
