Jerk Chicken with Mango Avocado Salsa

This easy recipe uses a spice blend to deliver delicious Jamaican jerk chicken in a fraction of the usual time. Pair with fresh mango salsa for a flavorful, healthy meal.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons jerk seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced or pounded thin
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 1 red bell pepper seeded and diced
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper seeded and diced
  • 2 cups chopped mango
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion
  • 1-2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • juice of 1/2 lime

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, stir the jerk seasoning and olive oil together into a thin paste. Rub evenly over both sides of the chicken breasts.
  • Grill or saute chicken for 4-6 minutes on each side, or just until it hits 165 degrees F and is no longer pink in the middle. Remove and set aside to rest briefly.
  • While chicken cooks and rests, prep the salsa. Combine avocado, red pepper, jalapeno, mango, red onion, cilantro, salt, and lime juice in a medium bowl. Toss gently to mix.
  • Serve individual chicken breasts with generous spoonfuls of salsa. Garnish with extra cilantro and lime wedges, if desired.
