  • Strain the juice from the salsa to use for the marinade. Set aside enough salsa without the juice to use for topping the chicken. Marinate the chicken breast halves in the bowl with the remaining salsa and juice mixture for 2 to 6 hours.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  • Discard salsa used for marinating, and bake chicken for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken juices run clear. Top with reserved salsa to serve.

Wow! This chicken dish is absolutely delicious. The fruit salsa adds a sweet and tangy taste to the chicken. I served this at a baby shower and all of the guests begged for the recipe. Read More

I had extra mangos and limes - and was looking for a good recipe to use them - and this hit the spot. It was time consuming to make - especially with the fresh squeezed juices. It was a nice tsting dish - but due to the somewhat exotic ingredients and the length of time to put together I don't see myself making it again. Read More

I attented a luau the other weekend and made this salsa and served with tortillas chips. It makes a TON and was quite a hit. No need to squeeze OJ and lime juice though. Just buy some! I also diced up some jalepenos for some added kick! Read More

This was excellent chicken but time consuming. Not great for kids but great for adults! I didn't have rum on hand but used tequila instead it was a great combonation with the lime and cilantro! If your looking for a rewarding dish this is it! Read More

The marinade/salsa gave the chicken a nice flavor. As far as a side dish of salsa I would have liked a little more "zing" in flavor but I think I could modify that by adding a touch of jalapeno or more chile pepper. All in all a nice dish--thank you! Read More

Excellent change for ordinary chicken. We grilled this on the b-b-q and it was so tender and the flavor was wonderful! Our company loved it! I would have liked to taste the rum a little more:) so i think i'll be a little more generous with that. The kids liked the chicken but not the salsa ALL around an A in our books! Read More
