Mango chicken is fresh and delicious with a mango marinade is bright with tropical mango flavours combined with fresh lime. 



8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs


1 1/2 cups (250g) fresh mango, chopped

3 tablespoons lime juice

1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon jalapeño, diced (optional)

1 tablespoon olive oil

salt to taste

Optional garnishes

minced jalapeño

edible flowers


Add all marinade ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth. 

Put about 3 tbsp of the marinade in a separate container to be used as drizzle. Store in fridge until needed.

Pour sauce into a large zip top bag with chicken thighs and let marinate in fridge - overnight preferably, but at least 4-5 hours.

Heat grill to 400°F. Remove chicken from the bag, and place on the grill spread out so that they heat evenly. Season with a bit of salt and grill for 8-10 minutes. 

Flip the chicken over to cook the other side for another 8-10 minutes (until it reaches an internal temperature of 170°). Spoon a bit more of the marinade (from the bag) on top of the chicken and season with a touch of salt on this side as well. 

Plate chicken and drizzle with reserved mango puree. Optionally, top with some minced jalapeño.
