RECIPE chicken and mango skewers

Chicken & Mango Skewers

Serves 4

Ingredients

6 tablespoons olive oil

¼ cup fresh lime juice

zest of 1 lime (optional)

1 teaspoon chili powder

½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

½ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon sugar

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch cubes

3 ripe, firm mangoes, peeled & cut into 2-inch cubes

Preparation

In large bowl, mix first 7 ingredients, add chicken and mango.

Cover and refrigerate 2-4 hrs (optional).

Heat grill to med/ med-high.

Thread skewers with chicken & mango cubes, alternating.

Brush grill with oil and arrange skewers on grill.

Cook until chicken is cooked through, 6-10 min, turning once.

Note:  to slice a mango, peel the fruit and then stand up on one of its narrow edges.  Cut down, just grazing the side of the pit (which is narrow & oblong); repeat on other side.  Place halves flat side down and cut into cubes.
