Mojito Mango Chicken

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by tara portee

This was created for Ready, Set, Cook 2006. A mojito is a traditional Cuban cocktail made with rum, mint and lime. This dish incorporates the mojito into a mango salsa. Once you pour this Caribbean "cocktail" over your gingery, garlicky chicken, you have a highly flavorful Caribbean entree.

mango salsa tasted even better than I expected-I can't imagine any improvementsto be made to that. Recipe was a fast one to prepare that did not taste like it was made quickly!
