Mango BBQ Chicken

This recipe is one of the best "fruit" recipes for chicken I've tried. It was yummy, spicy, sweet, tangy and full of flavor. Mangos are so good for you and give this marinade one of a kind texture. You'll love this dish! I served it up with my own recipe of Peanut-y Thai Rice and Roasted Green Beans in a ginger dressing.

Mango BBQ Chicken

4 Chicken breasts or 8 chicken thighs (or half and half)

2 fresh ripe mangoes

3 Tbs. fish sauce

2 Tbs. Thai chili garlic sauce

2 Tbs. brown sugar

3 cloves of garlic

1/4 cup fresh cilantro

4 Tbs. coconut milk

1 Tbs. lime juice and lime zest

1/4 tsp turmeric

Puree Mango, and all other ingredients besides the chicken. Score the chicken breasts or thighs in a criss cross pattern and pour 1/2 of the sauce over the chicken. Marinade and chill for up to 24 hours. Grill the chicken on the BBQ or grill pan. Serve with rice and Roasted Green Beans. Warm remaining sauce and serve over the chicken and rice.
