Chicken Curry with Mango and Spinach Salad

Chicken Curry with Mango and Spinach Salad

 

This is one of my recipes I call a “Salad as a Main Course” because of the use of chicken mixed in with the leafy greens.

This is also a meal that can be done in about 30 minutes.

If you have never had a mango before it can be mind boggling as how to go about removing the flesh from the big seed in the middle.
