Lime-Grilled Chicken With Cuban Salsa

Submitted by: TABBYKAT75
Lime-Grilled Chicken With Cuban Salsa

Introduction

This lime-grilled chicken is bursting with fresh, tropical flavor. We love it sliced on top of fresh greens and topped with the salsa. This lime-grilled chicken is bursting with fresh, tropical flavor. We love it sliced on top of fresh greens and topped with the salsa.
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    Salsa
    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 jalapeƱo chile pepper, finely chopped (optional; if you choose to use pepper, wear plastic gloves when handling)
    Chicken
    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

Directions

To make the salsa: In a medium bowl, stir together the beans, mango, onion, lime juice, cilantro, and jalapeno (if using). Set aside while grilling the chicken.

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.

    This was delicious! I knew I would love it but I was worried about my very picky "meat and potatoes" husband, especially with the salsa. Well, I was worried for nothing - he actually went back for seconds and thirds! This one's a keeper for sure! - 6/25/09

    Wow!!! Excellent treat for guests...I love the taste of this chicken, and the salsa could be served alone for a bean salad dish (if there are leftovers!)... Fantastic! Will definitely do again since it's so yummy and light! I served it with 0.5cup of white basmati rice. - 1/30/08

    Really good just note that the nutritional guide is off - there are about 300 plus calories in a serving and at least 6 grams of fat - not to mention there are carbs in it and the recipe says there are none.....make it though you will not be dissapointed - 1/17/08

  • Made this last night exactly to the "T". LOVED IT! Served with Near Asia spanish rice and it was sooooooo good! Brought some for lunch today, so I bet it's even better after the salsa marinates more overnight! Next time we make it we will add some ingredients and "tweak" it. But all... PERFECT!!!! - 7/8/10

  • Very nice... simple... tasty... I just wish measurements were more detailed... chicken breasts can range from 4-7 ounces! I served 4 people with 3 chicken breasts. If you slice it before serving, it goes a lot further and pwople eat less meat. - 6/22/10

  • I made this the other night and loved it! I did add a chopped avocado to the salsa, which I think ended up being a good thing because I also put in a whole jalapeno instead of a half, and it was one of the hot ones, so having another cool thing was nice. Even my picky daughter liked the chicken! - 6/18/10
