Mango Lime Awesomeness

I made this amazingly easy chicken dish the other week and was entirely won over by the sweet and spicy glaze that corrupted my normally plain grilled chicken. If you can find mangoes that are a good price and are somewhere along the ripe road of their life them most things may be in your pantry. Anytime I find a recipe that has minimal shopping is an overall win for me! Now beware the red pepper and cayenne bring the heat… not kick you in the pants hot but its a nice warm, heat that wants to hang onto your mouth for just a little bit. So, please don’t be scared, it pleasant and delicious!

Honey Lime Grilled Chicken with Mango Salsa (via Mrs. Harding Cooks)

4 chicken breast halves
1/4 cup honey
2-3 Tbs lime juice
cayenne pepper to taste {I probably used 1/4 tsp}
salt and pepper to taste
hot cooked rice

For the salsa:
2 mangoes, peeled and diced
1/4 cup diced red onion
2 Tbs chopped cilantro
1/4 cup diced red pepper {I used jarred roasted red peppers, fresh would be great though}
1 tsp diced jalapeno {we buy jarred sliced jalapeno so it’s always on hand}
3 Tbs lime juice {I buy mine bottled for convenience}
3 Tbs orange or mango juice

To prepare salsa, mix diced mangoes, onion, pepper, jalapeno, cilantro, and 3 Tbs lime juice and orange or mango juice. Set aside to let flavors mix.

Mix honey, lime juice to taste, and cayenne until well blended. Heat 2 tsp olive oil in skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken breasts in oil, season with salt and pepper to taste and drizzle honey mixture over chicken while cooking. It will bubble and create a glaze or sauce in pan while cooking.

Serve chicken breasts over rice with mango salsa on top. Drizzle extra sauce from pan over the top as desired.

Serves 4.
