3 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
1 1/2 cups peeled, seeded, and cubed papaya
1 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper
1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon honey
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
2 small cantaloupes
Lime wedges (optional)


Combine first 4 ingredients; toss well. Combine balsamic vinegar and next 5 ingredients; stir well. Pour vinegar mixture over chicken mixture; toss lightly. Cover and chill.

Cut each cantaloupe in half; remove and discard seeds. If necessary, cut a thin slice from bottom of each melon half so that it will sit flat. Spoon chicken mixture evenly into melon halves. Garnish with lime wedges, if desired.
