Low histamine crispy chicken salad

Low histamine crispy chicken with mango sauce

I like this recipe because cripsy chicken feels like a treat (and it is ! ). But combined with a salad, it’s a reasonable and healthy option. It’s also a good idea to use dried gluten free bread you may have at home and avoid wasting it.

Regarding the mango dressing, you can use fresh or frozen mangos, it works either way.
