    SugaredAlmond's Note:

    Sweet, spicy chicken with a cooling salsa It might seem like there are a lot of ingredients here, but it really is very simple - plus a lot of it can be prepared ahead. I would suggest another Mojito on the side, but it seems I might have got carried away with the Rum already - Hehehe! Cooking time includes marinading

    1. 1
      Place all Marinade ingredients in a pan and bring to a gentle simmer.

    5. 5
      Grate the lime zest and add to the Mango, along with the chili pepper.
    6. 6

      I spotted this recipe during RSC and have been wanting to try it. I finally found the demerara sugar. It was worth the wait! The chicken is wonderful, sweet and mildly spicy. The salsa is a wonderful accompaniment. I reserved a third of the marinade to avoid cross contamination and used it for serving. Great job Sugared Almond!

      Great RSC recipe!! I loved the sweet taste from the demerara sugar - it was like a wonderful surprise with the first bite. The chicken was not too spicy and the mango salsa really complemented the dish - the pairing was a great idea! I cooked the chicken in the oven since we are out of propane and it is quite cold outside. I had to use Serrano peppers as I could not get the scotch bonnets, but I doubled them and I do not think it took away from the dish. I also brought the marinade to a boil and then simmered it since it had been with raw chicken. Pretty presentation. Good luck Chef!
