1. Peel and core the apples. Cut into brunoise. Toss with the lemon juice.

2. Cut the mango into brunoise. Mix with the apples.

3. Cut the chicken breast into fine dice. Mix with the mango and apples. Mix in the chopped cilantro.

4. Season the mayonnaise with curry powder.

5. Mix enough mayonnaise into the chicken mixture so that it holds together well. (You may have some mayonnaise left over.) Keep refrigerated until ready to use.

6. Wash the apples and core them. Channel the apples (see Figure 16.8) from top to bottom at VS-in. (1-cm) intervals. Cut the apples in half vertically, then cut crosswise into slices about 54 in. (5-2 cm) thick. Rub with lemon juice.

7. Form quenelles (see Figure 13.5) of the chicken mixture and place on top of each slice of apple. Decorate with paprika and cilantro.

Variation

The chicken mixture can also be used to fill savory tart shells and vegetables such as leaves of Belgian endive and cucumber shells.

Good Carb Diet

WHAT IT IS A three-phase plan that has been likened to the low-carbohydrate Atkins program because during the first two weeks, South Beach eliminates most carbs, including bread, pasta, potatoes, fruit and most dairy products. In PHASE 2, healthy carbs, including most fruits, whole grains and dairy products are gradually reintroduced, but processed carbs such as bagels, cookies, cornflakes, regular pasta and rice cakes remain on the list of foods to avoid or eat rarely.
