Wash produce before use


Prep the chicken

  • Place the chicken on a large piece of plastic wrap and sprinkle the meat with a few drops of water. Cover with another piece of plastic wrap and pound with a rolling pin or a heavy frying pan to flatten to an even thickness of about ½ inch. Remove the plastic wrap, pat the chicken dry with a paper towel, and season generously with salt and pepper.
  • On a plate or shallow bowl, season the cornmeal dry blend with salt and pepper and as much cayenne as you like and spread in an even layer.
Working with 1 chicken breast at a time, gently press the chicken into the cornmeal dry blend, coating both sides.


Cook the chicken

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 3 to 4 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the chicken and cook, turning once, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until firm and cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed. Wipe out the pan.
While the chicken cooks, prepare the mango salad.


Make the mango salad

  • Trim the ends from the mango; cut away the peel, then cut the flesh away from the pit into halves. Thinly slice the halves crosswise.
  • Cut the avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit, scoop out the flesh, and cut the flesh into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Cut away the cores from the tomatoes; cut the tomatoes crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Strip the tarragon leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
In a large bowl, combine the mango, avocado, tomatoes, and tarragon. Drizzle with 1 to 2 tablespoons oil, season generously with salt and pepper, and toss to coat.


Toast the buns; assemble the sandwiches

In the same pan used for the chicken, place the buns, cut sides down, and cook over medium-high heat until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Alternatively, toast them in a toaster oven. Place the buns, cut sides up, on a work surface and spread each bun half with ½ teaspoon chipotle mayo. Top each bun bottom with the chicken and close with the bun tops.


Transfer the chicken sandwiches and mango salad to individual plates. Serve the remaining chipotle mayo on the side.
