Mango salsa complements the chicken perfectly adding a lively sweet and spicy flavor that would appeal to many. If you like a little more heat, simply add a jalapeno! Thumbs up approval by 4 households in our neighborhood whom we rotate weekend barbequing with! Thanks so much for the submission! Read More

Why use a marinade packet when you can make this recipe?! It's so vibrant and fresh tasting!!! I've made it twice in a weeks time it is *that* good! No changes made, and I used the Montreal chicken seasoning by McCormick Read More

Yum! This was a great combination of sweet and spicy! The mango salsa was absolutely delicious and paired nicely over top grilled chicken. I used lime juice and to season the chicken I opted to use Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime Seasoning Blend. The chicken came out moist and flavorful! I served this with a side of Spanish rice, sliced avocado and warm tortillas - great recipe! Read More

Oh yes we liked this...liked it a LOT actually! The one thing that I did add was some chopped jalapeño to the mango salsa and I would definitely do that in the future. The flavor is bright fresh and simply awesome and it has lovely presentation! Nothing not to like here I put this one in my Favorites folder. Read More

Sorry to the recipe purists. I don't like raw red pepper or firm Mango. Never bought a Mango before. Plus I had some real Ginger and Garlic in the pantry which seemed perfect. Diced everything up and sauteed it for awhile to meld flavors and soften/caramelize fruit and veggies. I encourage adding extra onion. It worked very very well. I used my own Poultry Seasoning (w/o salt). Ground mixed peppercorns and Kosher salt finished the chicken thigh seasoning. For those who don't like raw ingredients...this solves it. Kids might even eat it. Without any green onion tops I used dried chives for garnish (I'll pass on cilantro). This is a really good looking and flexible recipe...substitute some ingredients and seasonings. Only thing that really needs to be cooked is the chicken. Read More

Excellent! I used Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute for the chicken seasoning. I added a little Anaheim chile to the salsa because it's a mild chile (had to be careful for another eater in my family) but I like heat in my salsa! I made the salsa this morning and I put the chicken in the marinade about 3 hours before grilling it. I will be making this again because it is a very nice low-cal low-fat meal! Thank you Mazola!
