We have been buying produce like it's nobody's business lately! At one point this week, we had the following items in our kitchen: cantaloupe, watermelon, avocado, tomatoes, mangoes, plums, nectarines, strawberries, blueberries, cherries and bananas. For only two people, that's a lot of fruit! So I decided to make some delicioso salsa. It could have been paired with just about any type of fish (mahi mahi, halibut, salmon, tilapia), but I decided to keep it simple and convenient (translate: I didn't have any fish in my fridge) and serve it with chicken. The result was simple, fresh and tasty!
(Bonus: we had some leftovers, so I served it up the next morning in an omelet. Who knew mangoes could taste so good with eggs!)
Inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow
2 servings simple blackened chicken
1 ripe mango, diced
1 ripe avocado, diced
2 ripe beefsteak tomatoes, seeded and diced
5-6 green onions, finely chopped
1 teaspoon lime juice
garlic salt, to taste
lemon pepper, to taste
Mix mango, avocado, tomatoes, green onions, and lime juice. Season to taste with garlic salt and lemon pepper.
Using a sharp knife, cut blackened chicken breasts in half, lengthwise.
On a plate, place chicken breasts. Spoon a generous serving of the mango avocado salsa over the chicken.
