Loblaws Mango Chili Chicken

I was at Loblaws one Saturday and they had a stand that was serving sample h'ordeurve size crostinis with mango chutney and mango chili chicken. Do you ever walk by the meat section where the butcher packages the meat for you and notice that they already have marinated meats? I walk by there all the time and don't ever think of buying these marinated meats. But when I tried the mango chicken crostinis... I was hooked!!!

I immediately purchased 2 chicken breast pieces and thought of recipes I could make with it. I went to a wedding last month and I remembered that the chicken meal that I chose actually had a mango salsa on top of the chicken supreme. It was accompanied with mashed potatoes and summer vegetables. It was one of the best chicken wedding dinners I've every had.

So tonight, I decided to make Mango Chili Chicken with mango salsa, green beans, and mashed potatoes.

I don't have the recipe for the mango chili chicken and what it was marinated in but all I did with it was bake it in the oven.

I can, however, share with you the mango salsa that I made. It's so easy peasy!

1 medium size mango (chopped into tiny cubes)
juice of 1/2 a lime
table spoon of chopped coriander
1/2 a cup of chopped red pepper
1 red chili pepper desesded and chopped into tiny pieces (this is an option if you want a little bit of a kick)
teaspoon of olive oil
salt & pepper to taste

All you have to do is combine all of these ingredients together and voila!

I would totally use this salsa with perhaps mahi mahi, tilapia, or red snapper fish.
