Chicken & Mango Skewers
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
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.
