Chicken in Mango Salsa

This recipe is so easy yet so tasty. Pretty healthy too. You can used frozen or tinned mango but fresh is by far the best. Although a lot more messy! 

Cook the chicken and mix the rest - how hard can it be!


  • 4 Chicken breasts
  • 120g Spinach
  • 1 medium Red onion, finely chopped 
  • 1 medium Mango, finely chopped
  • 1tbsp fresh Mint leaves, chopped
  • 3tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3tbsp Sweet chilli sauce


    Cook the chicken as you see fit. I like to bash it so it is quite flat then cook it on the griddle for ten to twenty minutes depending on how thick it is. The missus has a thing about uncooked chicken so I make sure it is piping hot by using a temperature probe (I would go for greater than 75°C in the middle) for the less fussy of you just make sure it is not pink. You can shallow fry or put the chicken under the grill if you wish but I think the griddle pan gives the best artistic effect with the griddle lines. 

    Combine the rest of the ingredients and add some salt and pepper to taste. 

    Serve the chicken with a pile of salsa on top. Very nice.

    Tip: Mix any salsa that is left with some cold cooked pasta to make a very tasty lunch! 

    (About the recipe: This is quite a common recipe which I have seen on the Tesco Recipe site and also in the Australian Woman's Weekly series of cookbooks)
