Grilled Lime Chicken with Mango Avocado Salsa

Thursday, April 16, 2015

From our skinny table to yours ...

Hellooooo SPRING!!!  This dish is truly what spring on a plate would taste like and OMG is it delicious.  Chicken grilled to perfection topped with fresh, beautiful, bright homemade salsa and drizzled with a fruity cilantro mango sauce.

If you haven't yet tried our mango lime shrimp, it is a must and the inspiration for this meal.  The mango cilantro sauce is SO good we could truly pour it in a glass and drink it ... we might actually have to make a fruity cocktail in the near future so be on the lookout for that ;)

We are also BIG believers that you eat with your eyes first & this meal looks just as beautiful as it tastes.  Not too mention, it is so so easy to make!  And since we both have young babies these days, expect to find more & more quick cooking meals on the blog.

Hope you enjoy this one!

  1. Oh yes please!! This sounds delicious!! I'm always looking for new chicken recipes. I feel like we get caught up in a rut so much in the summertime with grilling. This mango avocado salsa would be great on it's own even to spice up regular old grilled chicken!! I love it!
