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
