Description

This easy Grilled Chicken With Mango Salsa is the tropical dish of your dreams. Tender chicken breasts are seasoned with a smoky, citrusy spice blend, then seared on the grill and smothered in sweet and spicy mango salsa.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of lime juice
  • Mango Salsa

Instructions

  1. Prepare Grill: Preheat grill to medium-high heat, approximately 350-375°F.
  2. Make Spice Rub: In a small bowl, mix garlic powder, cumin, coriander, smoked paprika, sea salt, pepper, olive oil and lime juice. Mix until combined.
  3. Prep Chicken: Add chicken to a large bowl, rub mixture over both sides of the chicken breast and let sit for 5-10 minutes.
  4. Grill: Place chicken on clean grill grates and grill each side for 4-6 minutes depending on thickness. Remove chicken when internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  5. Let Rest & Serve: Let your chicken rest for 5 minutes, then serve it with a heaping scoop of mango salsa!

Notes

  • To Store: Refrigerate cooled leftovers in a shallow airtight container and enjoy within 3 days.
  • To Reheat: Wrap each breast in heavy-duty foil along with some salsa and bake at 250°F. Once chicken’s internal temperature returns to 165°F, remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes before digging in.
  • To Freeze: Wrap each chicken breast in foil or plastic wrap, seal them in an airtight storage bag and freeze. Freeze mango salsa in a shallow airtight container. Chicken will last for up to 4 months while salsa will last for 2. Drain salsa after thawing and add to reheated chicken before serving.
