Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon peeled minced fresh ginger
  • 4 5-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 2 large ripe mangos, peeled and cubed
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Preparation

Preheat broiler to high and make sure oven rack is in highest position.

Combine soy sauce, honey and ginger in a small bowl and whisk together until well mixed. Place chicken in a medium sized bowl. Reserve two tablespoons sauce and pour remaining sauce over chicken, turning chicken to coat well. Spray a broiler pan with cooking spray. Place chicken on broiler pan and place in oven to cook 5-7 minutes until turning golden. Remove from broiler, turn chicken over and spoon remaining sauce on top of chicken. Return to broiler and cook for additional 5-6 minutes or until juices run clear or internal temperature reads 165 °F on instant read thermometer when inserted into thickest part of chicken.

Meanwhile, combine mango cubes and cilantro in a medium bowl and toss together gently.

To serve, place chicken on a platter in a diagonal row. Top with mango and cilantro and serve.

Serving Tips:
If you like it spicy, add ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper to mango and cilantro mixture. You could also add one cup chopped red bell pepper to the mango and cilantro.
