Honey Lime Grilled Chicken & Mango Salsa

Honey Lime Grilled Chicken

2 TBSP Honey
2 TBSP Lime Juice
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/3 c water

Place chicken in a shallow dish (you can use any chicken pieces, I used chicken breasts cut in half).  Pour marinade over chicken.  Cover with plastic wrap and store in fridge for at least an hour.  Then cook chicken on grill till chicken is no longer pink inside.

Mango Salsa

1 peeled mango, seeded and diced (about 2 cups)
1/4 c diced white onion
1/4 c diced red bell pepper
1 tsp fresh cilantro, minced
1 tsp lime juice
pinch of salt

I love when the weather heats up and I can get out of my stuffy kitchen and outdoors.  My family loves fresh fruit, veggies and grilled food in the summer.  This was something new for us.  (I'm trying to incorporate more fruit into our diet).  At first my husband wasn't sure he even wanted to try it, but I asked everyone to eat 1 bite.  It turns out they loved it.  (We served our chicken over rice, but you could have it without)  You could also use this fresh mango salsa on fish tacos or even eat it by itself with a few corn chips. 
Pin It!
