Preparation of Mango Salsa over Grilled Chicken and Couscous
1.The great thing about salsa is that you can add or remove ingredients to suit your own taste. Add pineapple depending on how pineapple-y you like your fruit salsa; it can also be omitted.
2.If making chicken, pound the breasts to an even thickness and marinate in the lime juice, salt, and garlic. Cover and marinate for 1 to 2 hours.
3.One hour before mealtime: Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl, including the mango and pineapple juice. Add the lime juice and toss; set aside.
4.Preheat grill to medium heat. Spray nonstick spray ON THE CHICKEN and place on the grill, sprayed side down. Cook chicken, turning once, until done. Meanwhile, cook the couscous or rice according to directions.
5.When the chicken is done, allow to stand, COVERED, for 5 minutes. Gently toss the salsa with the cilantro and serve with the chicken.
