Golden Jubilee Chicken

Nigella Lawson's Golden Jubilee reworking of Coronation Chicken, which I finally got around to trying. Better late than never. For 2.

1 mango, cut into 1cm cubes
1 spring onion, finely chopped
1–2 red chilis, deseeded and finely chopped
juice of 1–2 limes
1 cold cooked chicken breast, cut into chunks
1 little gem lettuce, shredded
1 handful fresh coriander, chopped
1 tsp groundnut oil
few drops toasted sesame oil

Mix mango, spring onion, chilli, lime juice.
Add chicken, lettuce, coriander, and toss.
Add oils, toss.

I substituted ¼ chopped red onion for the spring onion and 1 tsp olive oil for the groundnut oil: still good. However, it does need a lightweight lettuce like little gem or iceberg; Romaine is too dark and robust.
