READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by MizzNezz

Gingery chicken with a fruity salsa. Needs to marinate for at least 12 hours. I do it the day before.

This is the same recipe I use (other than using chicken breasts instead of thighs) and it produces wonderful results! The fruit salsa is an excellent match for the chicken. Very impressive dish to serve guests
