I made this recipe, along with two others from the RSC '06, for a 'Spring Break' theme night for my family. Everyone raved how fresh and tasty it was! My mom noted that the taste of the chicken could have stood alone but the salsa made it great. They were eating the left-over salsa the next day with tortilla chips. I didn't have tarragon vinegar so I just added tarragon to the marinade with apple cider vinegar. I made up the salsa the night before and let the chicken marinade over night as well so the flavors really had a chance to mingle. It's a great low-fat recipe!
- 1 1⁄2-2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1⁄2 cup light rum
- 1⁄4 cup tarragon vinegar
- 1⁄8 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 2 cups diced mangoes (slightly underripe, if possible)
- 2 cups diced papayas
- 1⁄2 cup golden raisin
- 2 teaspoons lime juice
- 3 green onions, chopped (the whole onion)
- 1⁄8 cup finely chopped green pepper
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ground ginger
- 1⁄2 teaspoon tarragon
Directions See How It's Made
- Combine marinade ingredients in a glass or plastic container. Add raw chicken breasts.
- Chill for at least 6-8 hours; turning halfway through marinating time.
- To prepare salsa, combine all salsa ingredients in a bowl. Chill until needed, but try to serve the salsa at room temperature
- After chicken has marinated, grill over hot coals until juices no longer pink, or roast in oven at 375 for about 20-30 or until juices run clear.
