Canned chicken works fantastically well in this recipe... Try it! If you’re overly skeptical, feel free to use shredded or finely chopped cooked chicken breast instead.

Prep: 10 minutes


1/4 cup light mayonnaise

2 tbsp. sweet Asian chili sauce

1/8 tsp. ground ginger

1/8 tsp. garlic powder

One 10-oz. can 98% fat-free chunk white chicken breast in water, drained and flaked

One 8-oz. can (about 1 cup) canned water chestnuts, drained and roughly chopped

1/2 cup chopped scallions

1/2 cup canned mandarin orange segments packed in juice, drained and chopped

Optional topping: sesame seeds
