Ingredients

  • 4 large chicken breasts halved

Strawberry Mango Marinade

  • 1 cup strawberries tops removed
  • 1 cup mango peeled and cubed
  • 1 medium jalapeno deseeded and chopped
  • 1/2 medium red onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1 tsp minced garlic

Instructions

  1. Combine all the strawberry mango marinade ingredients together in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.  Place the chicken and 3/4 of the marinade in a large zippy bag and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes - 3 hours.

  2. Start your grill and rub a bit of oil on it.  Once heated place your marinaded chicken pieces on it and cook the chicken until fully cooked (internal temperature of at least 165*F), flipping once.  While grilling you can use the reserved 1/4 strawberry mango marinade to brush on more sauce.

  3. Remove from the grill to cool.  Sprinkle with jalapenos, grilled lime juice, and cheese crumbles and serve with rice or vegetables.

Recipe Notes

I like to grill a few lime halves with my chicken to use as a quick flavorful spritz along my final dish along with my jalapeno pieces and cheese crumbles.  I place each half, flat-side down directly on the grill for 2-3 minutes and remove while still warm and juicy.
