READY IN: 24mins
Recipe by Petite Mommy

Chicken thighs w/pear & banana mint salsa on the table in 30 minutes or less. A delightful way to save money by using a cheaper cut of meat and eat healthy! (Recipe from Chef Express: Family Meals cookbook)

This was Ok. My main problem was that I had to cook it much longer than 3 minutes per side (at least double the suggested time). Also, the salsa was good but not great. The pear part was good but the bananna tasted a little wierd. I also added a squirt of hot chili sauce in addition to the sweet chili sauce which perked up the flavor a bit. Basically, this a healthy recipe that with a little modification could be quite good but I didn't love it as written. Sorry....
