We have made this recipe 4 times in the past month. The chicken marinade is delicious. The watermelon and mango salsa gives this a refreshing flavor. We have even made the chicken and used it on sandwiches at BBQs.
Soooooo yummy!! A girlfriend of mine made this over the weekend and it was fantastic!
