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:

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.
