Grilled Chicken with Black Bean and Mango Salsa THM E

I really wanted another grilling recipe to add to my collection. I have so many that are trim healthy mama s meals. I wanted a thm e recipe, I had 2 mangos, so I came up with this. It is similar to my grilled chicken with peach salsa. I remembered years ago making a salsa with fruit and beans in it. I thought I would make something similar that is perfect for summer.

As is typical for most recipes on my site, this is really easy to make and tastes great. You can make the salsa early in the day if you want and store in the fridge. You don’t have to grill the chicken, you can pan fry or bake in the oven. For me, if I don’t have to heat up my house right now, that’s a great meal.

For the chicken, you can season this with as much or as little as you want. If your family likes things hot, add some cayenne. I kept these on the mild side because I didn’t want to take away too much from the salsa. I loved the lightness of the dish on a hot day. If you don’t like mangoes, you can use another fruit like peaches or plums.. I like the mango but I know it isn’t everyone’s favorite.

        Hi Melissa. Thank you for letting me know the recipe wasn’t there. Sometimes my plug-in causes my site to glitch and the actual recipe disappears. The recipe is there now.
