I was looking for a way to use some oranges and some jicama, but I didn't have tomatoes so this was a great recipe to try. This was very tasty! I used regular navel oranges (fresh from our tree) instead of the canned mandarins. I also subbed cilantro (coriander) for the mint, as that was what I had on hand. Hubby enjoyed the salad a lot. The chicken was very tasty. The marinade would be good for fajitas, as well. I forgot to use the leftover marinade as a sauce, which would've been extra good.
