Ingredients (14)

Chicken Marinade

  • boneless, skinless chicken breasts lb.
  • orange juice, separated ¾ cup + 3 tablespoons
  • olive oil ½ cup
  • fresh lime juice, separated 1/3 cup + 3 tablespoons
  • lime zest, separated teaspoons
  • honey 1 tablespoon
  • cumin 1 teaspoon
  • soy sauce tablespoons
  • minced garlic 1 teaspoon
  • coarsely chopped cilantro, separated ½ cup

Mango Avocado Salsa

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.

Steps (10)

  1. 1
    Whisk together all of the marinade ingredients: 3/4 cup orange juice, olive oil, 1/3 cup lime juice, 1 teaspoon lime zest, honey, cumin, soy sauce, garlic and 1/4 cup cilantro in a medium-sized bowl. Remove about 1/2 cup (put in an airtight container in the fridge for later) and pour the rest into a large sealable bag.
  2. 2
    Trim the chicken of fat and pound the breasts to even thickness or slice in half to get evenly sized breasts and place in the bag with marinade.
  3. 3
    Place in the fridge for at least 3 hours making sure to flip the bag halfway through the time it is in the fridge. I recommend marinating for 6–8 hours.
  4. 4
    Lightly oil the grill grate and then place the marinated chicken (discard marinade in bag) on the grill.
  5. 5
    Cook for 10–12 minutes turning as needed (depending on the size of your pieces) or until chicken juices run clear and internal temperature is at 165°F.
  6. 6
    As you flip and cook the chicken, brush it generously with the reserved 1/2 cup marinade frequently.


  1. 1
    For the salsa, take the remaining 3 tablespoons orange juice, remaining 3 tablespoons lime juice, remaining lime zest, and remaining 1/2 cup cilantro and toss together.
  2. 2
    When grilling the chicken, also grill the mango. Brush with oil and grill on one side for about 4–5 minutes at medium-high heat.
  3. 3
    Chop the grilled mango and avocado into small bite-sized pieces. Add to the salsa with the diced red onion.
  4. 4

    Drizzle the cilantro lime dressing over the chicken breasts and top with a generous few spoonfuls of the salsa. Enjoy immediately.
