Mango Salsa Chicken and BSI: Mango Announcment

One Year Ago: Roasted Asparagus
Two Years Ago: Lemon Bars

The other day I walked into the grocery store and saw a huge crate of fresh mangoes. I was immediately inspired to make something delicious. I took them home (I paid first…don’t worry), let them ripen and decided their destiny would be in the form of fresh salsa. Was it delicious? Heck yeah it was! It was perfect on top of the chicken and even better when mixed in with the brown rice I served on the side.

Since I’m horrible at recipe development you with have to deal with the fact that I didn’t really measure anything for this recipe. I apologize. However, in my defense, you don’t really need to measure. This meal is all about personal taste. If you don’t like cilantro don’t add it. Not a fan of red onion? That’s cool. Make everything to your taste. I will give you the idea, you make it personalized for yourself and your family 🙂

Mango Salsa Chicken:

8 chicken breast tenders (not the breaded stuff, the raw stuff)
Badia Sazon Tropical seasoning for meat, poultry and fish – to cover
Fresh lime juice (from 1/2 of a lime)
Olive oil – enough to coat the chicken (you don’t want the chicken swimming in oil)

Add chicken breast, seasoning, lime juice and olive oil to a large zip top plastic bag. Marinade for for up to 8 hours.

Take chicken out of marinade and put directly onto grill. Throw away leftover marinade.

Grill on outdoor or inside grill. Once cooked top with mango salsa.

Mango Salsa:
1 large ripe mango – peeled and cubed
1 tablespoon red onion – finely chopped
2 tablespoons red bell pepper – finely chopped
1 tablespoon cilantro – finely chopped
Fresh lime juice (from 1/2 of a lime)
Fresh crack of pepper
Pinch of salt

Combine all ingredients and let flavors meld together in the fridge. I like to make my salsa in the morning so it’s nice and flavorful by dinner. If you are a fan of hot peppers they would be a great addition to this salsa.

  6. Mangoes rock and so does mango salsa. I make mine with a can of crushed pineapple as the base and add from there. So easy and so fresh!

  7. Brandy, this looks so delicious! I’m always looking for new dinner ideas, and this will be perfect. Thanks for sharing. You have a beautiful blog and I’m looking forward to exploring your recipes! 🙂

  8. I so can’t wait until they come in season here in MN! Thanks!

  9. I’ve never tried mango salsa. I must remedy this immediately!

  10. Mango salsa has such bright colors and flavors, wonderful over chicken!

  11. I haven’t seen BSI go around for a while now. I’m glad it’s back. I love mangoes! Your salsa looks fantastic…puts me in the mood for summertime!!

  12. Oooh mangoes….I usually like them by themselves, but salsa sounds wonderful. And I TOTALLY agree. No measurements!! Cooking is supposed to be a personal taste thing, not a precise science.

  13. Mangoes is a great choice. I am surprised, no one picked it before. Good for you, BRandy.

  14. Mango salsa looks yummy.I love mango.I have linked one of my recipe.

  15. This looks so fresh and delicious! I love your new look! You know what’s weird? I was planning a shrimp and mango dish for this weekend…It was meant to be.

  16. Oh boy! Mangos are my favorite fruit–so much so that I usually refuse to make ANYTHING with them b/c I am a mango purist. But there is a very simple salad I enjoy making with them (only when I have a surplus, of course, otherwise it would be sacrilege) so if I can find some ripe ones before Sunday, I’ll make it for BSI! Now I’m really wanting that salad so I hope I get lucky with the mangos. Usually the ones I buy at the grocery store take 1-2 weeks, sometimes a month (!) to ripen.
