Lime-Grilled Chicken With Cuban SalsaSubmitted by: TABBYKAT75
IntroductionIf you prefer not to grill the chicken, simply broil it indoors. This has a wonderful fresh taste and appeal, and you can make it as tame or as spicy as you wish.

1 can (15 1/2 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 ripe mango, peeled and finely chopped
3 Tbsp. chopped red onion
3 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 jalapeĆ±o chile pepper, finely chopped (optional; if you choose to use pepper, wear plastic gloves when handling)
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2 tsp. grated lime peel
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
2 tsp. canola oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
To make the chicken: Place the chicken in a shallow dish. Add the lime peel, lime juice, oil, salt, and pepper and rub the mixture into the chicken. Cover and let stand for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the grill or broiler. If using the broiler, coat a broiler-pan rack with cooking spray.
Place the chicken on the grill rack or broiler pan. Cook 4" from the heat, turning once, until the chicken is no longer pink in the thickest part, 10 to 12 minutes.
Serve the chicken with the salsa. If desired, slice the chicken into strips to serve.
