BBQ Chicken with Avocado Mango Salsa

Posted Apr 14 2010 4:29pm

Yo!

Just a quick post to tell you about din-din and share a super easy recipe that was very refreshing on this HOT (83 degrees!) day – BBQ Chicken with Avocado Mango Salsa!

Once again my beloved griddler made an appearance as the appliance du jour this evening, along with the sauce du jour – Famous Dave’s Rich & Sassy BBQ Sauce ! I simply marinated two chicken breasts in the sauce for about 10 minutes, then placed them on my piping hot griddler.

Like a George Foreman grill, the griddler also whisks away extra fat and collects it in a removable tray underneath the appliance. Seriously, what can’t this baby do?! I’m certain I’ll come home one day to find it dusting the house and folding the laundry. ;)

Earlier, while the chicken was marinating, I whipped up an incredibly easy salsa.

You need to run, nay – sprint, and make this salsa right.now! It is so cool and refreshing. I was eating it by the chicken, spoon and chip full, and can confirm that it is simply divine all three ways. ;)

The flavors went so well with the tangy BBQ sauce and the combination of textures – crunchy, creamy, chewy – were fantastic!

A quick two minute zap from the microwave gave my broccoli a nice tender-crisp bite. Love me some broccoli, don’t ya’ know.

Well, true to my word – I will be tuning into America’s Next Top Model at 7:00 (What? 26 year olds shouldn’t still be watching ANTM? I didn’t get the memo…) and hitting the hay at 8:00. It’ll still be light out and the neighborhood children will still be playing in their yards, but I’ll be sleeping like a little angel. O:)

Goodnight!

What kind of salsas do you like? Fresh or jarred? Chunky or smooth? Mild or Hot? Do you ever make your own?
