Directions

How To Make Your Lime & Cilantro Chicken Salad with Avocado & Mango Salsa:

  1. Skin your garlic cloves by crushing them between a chef’s knife blade and a cutting board. Then, squeeze your lime.

  2. In a small bowl, place the crushed garlic, lime juice, honey, sugar, olive oil, cumin and salt. Snip your cilantro (save a few leaves for garnish) using herbs scissors directly into the bowl. Then whisk your dressing well with a small balloon whisk.

  3. Place your chicken thighs into a shallow dish, and pour about a third of your lime and cilantro dressing over the chicken. Use kitchen tongs to turn over the thighs so the dressing covers every bit. Set aside for at least 15 minutes to marinate (if you have time, leave for 1-2 hours).

  4. Place the remaining dressing into the fridge to chill.

  5. In the meantime, deseed and slice your red pepper using sharp chef’s knife and wooden cutting board. Set aside.

  6. Now, peel your mango using a swivel peeler, and then dice using a sharp chef’s knife. Set aside.

  7. Halve, pit and slice your avocado with an avocado slicer – much less mess and wasted flesh than using a knife. Then use a precise paring knife to dice the avocado into small pieces. Set aside.

  8. Lastly, use a precise paring knife to thinly slice your green onion.

  9. Heat a skillet on a medium heat with one teaspoon of the vegetable oil. Once hot, add the chicken fillets in batches and cook until each side is crispy and golden, about 4-5 minutes on each side. Use a cooking thermometer to make sure you have cooked the chicken through to 165°F, the safe cooking temperature, and then allow your chicken to rest.

  10. Use a paper towel to wipe the skillet clean and add heat the remaining 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil. Once hot, add the diced red pepper and fry till cooked through.

  11. In a medium bowl, add the diced avocado and mango, and the green onions. Take the dressing out of the fridge and drizzle over 2 tablespoons. Mix well.

  12. In your salad / presentation bowl, place the romaine leaves, fried peppers, and the avocado & mango salsa. Use your hands to mix well.

  13. Cut the chicken into strips directly over the bowl using heavy duty kitchen shears (easier than using a knife and cutting board).

  14. Drizzle over the remaining dressing and toss well. Garnish with the reserved cilantro and red chili flakes.

  15. Serve your salad with serving tongs.

Kimberly Jones said: My mom loves these meat claws

There very durable and cut right threw the meat highly recommended. My mom works with a church and I got them for her she use to use a knife which took her awhile to cut up 5 big pans of pork roast up she loves these claws she said it cut her prep time in half and it broke the pork up very easily she told me thank you and that she loved them. Thank you Chef Remi you made my mom's day.

C.D. said: Love them

I love these measuring spoons. There are plenty of sizes so I have one for all my needs. They are sturdy and I believe they will last a long long time. I ditched the ring that holds them together because it is not my thing but I know lots of people that like that.

Kathy said: FINALLY a knife holder that WORKS

I have been wanting a magnetic knife holder FOREVER it seems. However, family and friends that had purchased numerous magnetic knife holders NEVER gave good reviews considering they didn't do what they were suppose too. So I decided to give Chef Remi's magnetic holder a try and I must say, I am beyond satisfied. I absolutely adore it! It does exactly what it is suppose to do, was easy to mount on the wall and adds more organization to my kitchen. I will definitely be referring everyone I know to this product and will purchase again if I ever get more knives.
