What you will need to make Mango Chicken Salad:
- Grilled Chicken Breast – Marinate your chicken breasts in a citrus marinade for maximum flavor.
- Mango – Make sure to get a perfectly ripe mango so it is nice and sweet
- Avocado – Creamy, and smooth, avocados make everything better!
- Red Onion – This adds a little crunch without overpowering the dish.
- Cilantro & Jalapeno – I’m lumping these together because they are both optional. If you don’t like it skip it!
- Lime Juice – A good squeeze of a lime brings everything together.
- RITZ Crackers – A classic party favorite. RITZ Crackers are the perfect pairing for this bright, light, chicken salad. Buy a regular box or if you’re having a smaller party you can grab RITZ Fresh Stacks. They also come in smaller, on-the-go packs so they’re perfect for smaller get-togethers!

The nice thing about Mango Chicken Salad is that, other than the grilling the citrus chicken which you can do ahead of time, all you have to do is dice up your ingredients and toss them all together. A sprinkle of salt and a squeeze of lime and you’ve got the perfect topper for a RITZ cracker.
If you’re making these for a party you’re going to need more than one appetizer. This recipe for RITZ Bruschetta Toppers is always popular. Fresh tomatoes, green onions, two types of cheese, and a little Italian dressing for added flavor. Put it all together on top of a RITZ Cracker and bake for 10 minutes so the cheese gets all melty. Easy and delicious, just the way I like in my party appetizers!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE RITZ BRUSCHETTA TOPPERS:
- RITZ Crackers
- Fresh Tomatoes
- Green Onions
- Two types of cheese: Parmesan and Mozzarella
- Italian Dressing
If you’re making Mango Chicken Salad for a Cinco de Mayo party, or a summer cookout throw a few colorful mini sweet peppers and some limes on the grill while you’re cooking your chicken. Then plate your appetizers on a wood cutting board surrounded with the grilled fruits and veggies. Place them on a Mexican-inspired table cloth (I use a cool poncho from a trip to Mexico) and toss in a few mini sombreros and maracas and you have a fiesta!
