Tangy Chicken with Mango Salsa

I love summer fruit, I feel like I could eat it all day long. Nectarines are my favorite. (There are none in this picture because I ate them already!)

First things first, the mango salsa. I actually just bought a batch of fresh mango salsa from a local gem that makes it perfectly (and saved me at least 30 minutes....and considering the mess I make when I cook probably more!) It has a nice spice to it so I added another 1-2 mangoes to make it more "chutney" like.



Even if you're just serving for your family, food is supposed to be pretty! Take advantage of simple garnishes like fresh cilantro, basil or mint (really good mixed into melon salads!) These are pretty much items I buy weekly at the store cause I know I'll use them.



The chicken was marinaded in a simple combination I use a lot seen here then grilled. 


Serve over brown rice and top with the chutney and cilantro! And BAM! Dinner is done :) 



One of the best parts of this meal is lunch the next day! All but the rice can go into yummmmmmo lettuce wraps!
