Mango Chicken

If you want to impress your friends with an easy, delicious, fresh, and PRETTY dinner, cook this:

Chicken with Mango Salsa

-Dice a mango in small cubes. Mango should be ripe, but not mushy.
-Cut up a red bell pepper into small pieces
-Add some chopped green onion
-Add a small bunch of cilantro
-Mix ingredients together
-Squeeze a lime over the mixture
-Do not add salt to the salsa
-Put into the fridge until chicken is ready

-Pound out the chicken breasts so they are flat. This also helps the chicken stay very tender.
-Put some olive oil into a pan on the stove top and warm it up.
-Sprinkle Kosher salt and pepper onto the chicken breasts
-Put chicken onto hot pan and cook about 3 minutes per side, or until you think the chicken is ready!

Spoon Salsa over chicken and enjoy!
Serve with a side of couscous....they go great together.

Substitions and additions:
-Add avocado to the salsa
-Add a glaze to the top of the chicken
-Substitute different types of bell pepper for the red
-Substitute pineapple for the mango if you can't find any ripe mangos.

Please Note: I do not include amounts of the ingredients because it depends on how many people you are cooking for. I usually only cook for two people, so in this case I used two chicken breasts, half a bell pepper, a whole mango, about 6 green onions, and a handfull of cilantro. When I cook, I hardly ever measure things out, so just play with it and experiment in your own way! You can add other spices and seasonings as you wish, but the salsa really adds a lot of flavor to the chicken!
