  2. Pour the marinade into a gallon-sized bag with the chopped chicken or mixing bowl for marinating.

  4. After marinating, string the chicken on the skewers.

Prepare the mango sauce:

  1. In a blender or food processor blend the mango, habanero pepper, garlic clove, lime juice and salt until smooth.

Cook the chicken:

  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat or 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Spray the grill grates with oil and cook the chicken kebabs for 5 minutes on each side.
  3. Serve the chicken with the mango sauce on the side for dunking or drizzled on top.

Serving Suggestions:

Enjoy the kebabs atop a bed of rice with a side of black beans garnished with cilantro. Dunk the chicken in the mango sauce or drizzle on top. Either way, you’ll get a bite of sweet mango and spicy chicken with every bite.

Enjoy alongside your favorite beverage. Mango margaritas would certainly complete this mango inspired meal!
