Grilled Citrus Chicken with Jalapeno Mango Salsa


Wow. Wow. WOW. 😍

This dish is packed FULL of fresh summer flavours & beyond delicious! It's quick, easy & perfect for a quick weeknight meal but presents so beautifully for a backyard BBQ or dinner party.

The chicken is perfectly juicy & tender. I let mine marinade for over 24 hours (Did I forget about it? Yup! Oops!) but at least a few hours will do. n

Here's a quick tip! Always, always, always place your marinating meat & zip lock bag into a plastic container while it hangs out in the fridge. I cannot confirm or deny what a mess it makes if *by chance* your ziplock bag, say, explodes in the fridge & the marinade goes everywhere?! Trust me, it's a must & will save you ample time, stress & tears if it happens to you. (Like I said, I can't confirm it has ever happened to me......)

This recipe screams summer time & I definitely think you need to make this tonight!
