Chicken and salad
Place chicken in a crock pot and cook on low 3-5 hours until chicken is able to shred. It is useful to cook a big batch and keep on hand for meals throughout the week.
Using the small blade on your cheese grater, a food processor attachment, or salad shooter, shred the carrots and jicama.
Thinly chop the bell pepper, snap peas, and cabbage. Place cabbage, carrots, bell peppers, jicama and snap peas into a large bowl and combine well.
Dish salad mix onto plates and drizzle with 1 Tbsp. of dressing each. Top with mango, nuts and fresh cilantro. You can also mix everything and the dressing together and let it sit for one hour in the fridge before serving.
