Grilled Chicken with Mango Salsa

Gluten Free Living – 2015

Grilled Chicken with Mango Salsa is one of my favorite summer recipes. The chicken is seasoned very simply and grilled. Then it’s topped with a scrumptious Mango Salsa that’s got crunch from the cucumbers, heat from the jalapeno peppers and red onions, sweet from the mangos, savory from the cilantro and citrusy from the fresh lime juice. All the flavors work so well together and when the Mango Salsa is served over top of grilled chicken, pork chops or steaks it is quite wonderful indeed.

Last summer a friend of mine made this Mango Salsa recipe several times when we were serving food during a mission trip. I loved it at first bite. I got the recipe from my friend’s daughter, but then promptly forgot about it until I saw some mangos in the store last week and realized I wanted to make up a batch of her Mango Salsa. When Cyndie gave me her daughter Bryce’s recipe, she said they really liked eating the Mango Salsa with Grilled or Barbecued Chicken, Steak or Pork Chops. It’s also good with fish!

If you’re looking for a great, fun, summer time entree to serve to friends and family, you will really enjoy this Tex-Mex entree. Grilled Chicken with Mango Salsa is healthy, low calorie, clean eating and gluten free, as well. This recipe doesn’t take more than about 30 minutes from start to finish if your grill is hot. Quick, easy, succulent, delectable. Yes!
