To slice a mango, peel the fruit and then stand it up on one of its narrow edges, with the stem end pointing toward you. Using a large, sharp knife, cut down about 1 inch to one side of the stem, just grazing the side of the pit. Repeat with the other side. Place the halves, cut side down, on the cutting board and cut into cubes.

Ingredients:

  • 6 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbs. sugar
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 ripe but firm mangoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch cubes

Directions:

In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, lime zest, chili powder, cayenne, salt and sugar. Add the chicken and mangoes and stir gently to coat with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.

Prepare a hot fire in a grill.

Remove the chicken and mangoes from the marinade and thread onto metal skewers, alternating the pieces and dividing them evenly.

Arrange the skewers on the grill and cook, turning once, until the chicken is nicely charred and cooked through, 6 to 10 minutes. Transfer the skewers to a warmed platter and serve immediately. Serves 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from simple and delicious I have been making this recipe for a few years now - always come back to it. It's great for parties - every one loves the grilled mango flavor. I pair it with black beans over cilantro-lime rice - so nice!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, sweet and tangy Excellent tasty main; I would suggest buying pre-cut mango. Cubing the mango took the longest, messy and not very accurate for skewer preservation. I will definitely use this recipe all summer long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tweaked for an SCD entree This is a simple and delicious recipe that was able to be tweaked (honey substituted for sugar) for a compliant 'Specific Carbohydrate Diet' entree. Many facing serious diet restrictions feel that they are confined to humdrum meals but this breaks through those self-imposed limitations by providing a tasty and satisfying course.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs more flavor.. I followed the recipe except I doubled the salt and added onion chunks to skewers. The chicken had subtle favors of lime and spices but was kind of bland. I used some on the salad with simple vinaigrette and it was much better. I will double the seasonings next time and maybe add some cilantro too.
