Grilled Mango Cilantro Lime Chicken

Courtesy of Teri Masello

Ok this is a recipe I came up with myself and LOVE! I try not to use any salt but this recipe definitely needs a bit to bring out the flavors even more. You will want to make this a few hours before you are ready.


8 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 1/4 cups olive oil
2 cups fresh cilantro
1 1/2 cups fresh Mango
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp fresh garlic
3 limes
1 tbsp lime zest

First clean the chicken and remove all the excess fat. Poke some holes into the top with a fork. Put in large baking dish.

In a small bowl add olive oil, salt and garlic. Finely chop cilantro (leaves only) and add in. Peel and cut Mango and puree the "Meat" of the fruit, add into the oil mixture. Cut the limes in half and squeeze the juice out into the oil mixture and add in zest. Pour mixture over chicken and cover with plastic wrap. Marinate in the fridge for 2-3 hours. Cook over medium high heat on the grill until juices run clear.
