TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + marinating Cook: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 5 tablespoons lime juice, divided
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 2 medium mangoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 serrano pepper, seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 corn tortillas (6 inches)
  • 3 cups coleslaw mix
  • 6 tablespoons fat-free sour cream


  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the orange juice, 3 tablespoons lime juice, garlic powder and cumin; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

  • 3. Drain and discard marinade. Place chicken on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 170°. Cut into thin strips.
  • 4. In a nonstick skillet, cook tortillas over medium heat for 1-2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Top each with coleslaw mix, chicken, mango salsa and sour cream. Yield: 6 servings.

"Really tasty! I would recommend basting the chicken every once in a while, and the longer the salsa sits, the better the flavors gel. I used small corn tortillas, which added some more heart and nutrition to the mix. I also had cabbage on hand that I needed to use up, so substituted that for the cole slaw mix--perfectly fine!"

"My daughters and I loved it! The mango salsa adds the right amount of sweetness and the cabbage the right amount of crunchiness. I did leave out the pepper and used ground ginger and it still turned out super."
