DIRECTIONS

  • Salsa:
  • In a medium bowl, combine the mango, papaya, bell pepper, cucumber, red onion, mint, jalapeno, lime juice and salt. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or as long as 8 hours. Bring to room temp before serving.
  • Chicken:
  • Cut away any hard parts of the lemongrass stalks. Slice crosswise into 1/8 inch thick slices. In a food processor or blender, combine the lemongrass, ginger, chile sauce, curry and 2 tablespoons of the peanut oil. Puree until smooth.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook the pureed mixture until the aroma is apparent, about 5 minutes. Mix in the soy sauce, lime juice, and 1/4 cup water. Cool to room temperature.
  • Place the chicken in a large bowl. Pour the cooled puree mixture over the chicken and toss to coat completely. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, up to 8 hours.
  • Lightly brush the cooking grate with oil. Place the chicken breasts, skin side down, over indirect medium heat. Grill, turning once, until the meat is opaque throughout and the juices run clear, 10-12 minutes.
  • Serve the chicken breasts warm with the tropical salsa.
