How to make Mango Salsa Chicken
In a small bowl, add all the ingredients up to the chicken and whisk to combine. Add the chicken breasts to the marinade, cover, and pop the bowl in the fridge for at least 4 hours (overnight is best!)
Once the chicken has marinated for a while, fire up your grill and place the breasts on it when it’s heated up. Cook until they are no longer pink, flipping once halfway through. Place them on a plate, cover and let the chicken rest.
Make the Salsa
Combine all of the salsa ingredients and mix in a bowl until everything is well incorporated. Spoon it on top of the chicken, serve and DEVOUR!
Mango Salsa Chicken Serving Suggestions
This grilled chicken with salsa recipe is SO fresh and flavorful all on its own, and it brings protein, healthy fats and flavor altogether for a nutritious meal! If you want to add something more to your plate, you could serve the grilled chicken with salsa and add some air fryer roasted potatoes as a side. Finish things off with the PERFECT summer drink- I suggest one of my summer cocktail recipes such as a blended raspberry mojito or even some simple but refreshing cucumber mint water!
Grilled Chicken with Mango Salsa FAQ
Although I used mango salsa for this grilled chicken recipe, you could easily swap out the mangos and use a different kind of tropical fruit instead- I would recommend diced pineapple or peaches!
First, slice your mango lengthwise downwards on either side of the seed. Try to slice the mango as close to the seed as possible, so as to not waste any of the fruit! Next, keep the mango in its peel and slice vertical lines across, followed by horizontal slices afterwards. The mango should now look like cubes, but still be attached to the peel. Next, turn the peel inside out and push the mango cubes into a bowl. You may need to use the back of a spoon, a spatula or a knife to help separate the fruit from the peel.
YES! Mangos are rich in many nutrients like vitamin C, A, E, and a variety of B vitamins, as well as folate, copper, and potassium JUST to name a few. They also help boost immunity and help your digestive health, too!
