Grilled Mango Salsa Chicken Recipe

With grilling season upon us, this Grilled Strawberry and Mango Salsa Chicken should be on weekly rotation! We can’t get enough of grilling with a touch of sweetness! The best part of this delicious dish is that it’s simple to prepare, and EVERYONE is going to love it! The chicken is marinated in a sweet mango puree and then grilled to perfection and topped with a fresh mango and strawberry salsa. It’s gluten-free, paleo and just dang delicious!

Why We Love Mangos

Did you know that mangos provide 100% of your daily vitamin C, 35% of your daily vitamin A and 12% of your daily fiber? And they’re super delicious, of course! They are rich in antioxidants as well, which help fight free radicals. A diet rich in mangos and other vitamin C rich fruits can help aid in improving gut health as well!

fresh mango salsaHow do you cut a mango?

There are a lot of different methods out there for cutting mangos. Some say to peel the mango and slice. We found the easiest way is to slice off two chunks of the mango on the flat side. Then cut up the pieces while it’s still in the skin and then scoop it out.

Alternatively you could also cut the mango halves, then using a glass similar in size scope out the mango in one large chunk. Then dice it up!

Can you swap out other fruits?

We love this with mango and strawberries, but you could probably substitute a few other sweet fruits here, such as pineapple or peaches!

Using a Grill Pan or a Grill

Our first choice for cooking this recipe is to cook it on an outdoor grill. Since this chicken has a sweet mango marinade, cooking it on the grill where there is more air circulation is better and there is less likely of a chance to burn. However, we have tested it on a grill pan and it works, but you shouldn’t leave too much of the marinade on the chicken before placing on the pan to grill since it has a tendency to burn before it is cooked through.

Thai Turkey Burgers with Spicy Sriracha Slaw

I am all about these thai turkey burgers right now! The dish takes a quick 30 minutes to put together but is full of exotic flavors to make a weeknight meal special. You can enjoy the last of the summer weather we are having and take this outside to prepare on the grill or savor this dish all year long and make on the grill pan inside. The burgers are flavorful and moist and a great low carb dinner!

Thai Turkey Burgers and Slaw

We wanted to keep the accompanying slaw simple so we prepared this using a pre-shredded broccoli and carrot slaw mix, but if you don’t have this readily available go ahead and shred some using a food processor or a box grater. The mangos REALLY make this side dish stand out but just make sure to use a perfectly ripe one so it adds the right amount of sweetness.

Thai Turkey Burgers and Slaw

You can serve them as lettuce wrapped burgers for the perfect low carb dinner that satisfies!

Or make it into a low carb burger bowl with the slaw, cauliflower rice, avocado, red onion, and ribboned cucumber drizzled with a little extra sriracha. PERFECT!

Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie

Smoothies are the easiest make-ahead breakfast! We love them because the possibilities are endless. In the past I’ve offered up many smoothie recipes, and even the perfect smoothie guide, but today we are focusing on the idea of smoothie freezer packs, and specifically nutrionally based smoothies.

Smoothie packs are so popular these days, and while they may be convenient, they can be pricey and you can’t really control what is in them. For the next four weeks we’re going to offer up 4 nutritional-minded smoothies that you can prep in advance, and in bulk if you choose, to be ready for a quick blend in the morning before heading out the door. And at the end we’re going to do a round up and a bonus 30 Budget-Friendly Smoothies (in under 30 minutes) guide!

Anti-inflammatory Smoothie Ingredients

If you are a long-time reader of mine, you know that I believe that food can play a big part in not only keeping the body healthy, but also healing the body, so we’re offering up 4 make-ahead smoothie packs that target specific health benefits! And today marks our first one: Anti-Inflammatory!

Inflammation in the Body

Our body uses a process known as inflammation to protect ourselves from invading foreign microbes  such as chemicals or pollen, or to help heal from a wound. When this condition persists without the underlying cause it can be harmful. This is known as chronic inflammation and it has been linked to a number of larger medical conditions such as diabetes, arthritis and heart disease. A natural and easy way to help keep inflammation down is through food!

Anti-inflammatory Smoothie

Best Anti-Inflammatory Foods

Eating a diet full of foods rich with vitamins and minerals is a great start to lower inflammation. Some common foods to help with this are leafy greens, nuts and fatty fish. For our smoothie today we’ve paired a few (delicious) foods together that are high in anti-oxidants and rich in vitamins in mineral to help reduce inflammation: mango, cauliflower, ginger, turmeric and black pepper!

Stay tuned for the rest of the make-ahead smoothie freezer pack series:

Chicken Wings with Mango-Chili Sauce

Prep Time 00:45 Cook Time 00:10 Total Time 0:55 Serves 6

Ingredients

    Mango-Chili Sauce

    Other Ingredients

    • 2 pounds chicken wings (about 24), wingtips removed, or drumettes rinsed and patted dry
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • Chopped scallions, for garnish

    Directions

    1. Place all of the mango-chili sauce ingredients, except for the chili paste, into a high-speed blender. Puree until smooth. Stir in the chili paste and taste. Adjust seasoning as desired.
    2. Place chicken wings in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Coat with 1/2 cup of mango-chili sauce, set the rest of the sauce aside for later. Sprinkle wings with sesame seeds and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
    3. Grease a grill or grill pan. Grill the wings for about 5 minutes on each side, or until opaque and fully cooked through.
    4. While wings cook, place reserved sauce in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 5 minutes. If the sauce is too thick, add a few teaspoons of water until the desired consistency is reached. If the sauce is too thin, continue to cook until thick.
    5. Toss chicken wings in 1/4 cup of sauce (or brush sauce on them) and place on a serving platter.
    6. Garnish with chopped scallions and diced mangoes, and serve with remaining mango-chili sauce on the side for dipping!

    Recipe Notes

    How to cut a mango: Slice off the sides of the fruit, avoiding the large seed in the center. Once you have these two sides, you can get to the flesh and slice or dice as needed. Then simply scoop it out of the skin.
