Mango Chicken

When Mason and I were living in Utah, his cousins had us over for dinner. They made this dish and we were hooked. We make it all of the time. It is healthy and DELICIOUS!! Enjoy!


3-4 chicken breasts
1/3 c. teriyaki sauce
1/3 c. pineapple juice
1/3 c. honey
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 T. olive oil
black pepper to taste

(Keep 1/3 c. for basting)


1 avocado, diced
1 mango, diced
1 tomato, diced (squish out seeds)
5 green onions, chopped
½ c. cilantro leaves, cut with kitchen shears
1-2 jalapeno peppers, finely diced (put sandwich bag over hand to take seeds out)
juice of 1 lime

Marinate meat for approximately 6 hours. Grill meat, while basting with extra sauce. Make salsa right before serving. Serve meat with salsa on top.

Note: Leftovers are excellent on salad with Brianna’s Poppyseed salad dressing.

That sounds delicious! What sides do you serve with it?

This is a pretty versatile dish. We have served it on rice with a side of veggies, in a salad, or in a quesadilla with the salsa on top. You could also serve it over nachos with a side of refried beans and Spanish rice.

Oh yum. Thanks for posting it! This will more than likely show up on our menu for next week. :)

Also really good with peaches instead of mangos. I actually like it better. Hmmm.
