I was looking for a quick chicken dish with salsa and happened upon this recipe. I cheated and used jarred mango salsa. The chicken was very tasty.

4.5 stars I really liked this however I would use chicken thighs next time simply because my family perfers the dark meat. The fruit salsa was really fresh.

The Marinade was very easy and so flavorful. The chicken was very tasty even without the salsa. I used boneless, skinless thighs instead of breasts and we loved it. I would definitely make this again!

I would marinate the chicken just a little longer. I am not a big cilantro fan so I would decrease the amt. used next time. The family enjoyed the meal. I thought the salsa was a lot of work and expense for the result. Plenty of marinade for the amt. of chicken suggested, could cut amt. of marinade in half or add more chicken.
